ANCHORAGE – Senior guard Suki Wiggs scored 34 points and Alaska Anchorage used a record-setting first-half defensive effort to earn a 73-45 men’s basketball victory over Simon Fraser on Saturday at the Alaska Airlines Center.

The Seawolves (17-5, 11-3 GNAC) also got 22 points from senior guard Spencer Svejcar as they moved into a first-place tie in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference standings with six games left in the regular season.

The Clan (2-20, 0-14) were led by 13 points from point guard Michael Provenzano, but the visitors from British Columbia were outshot 41 percent to 28 percent and outrebounded 40-27.

UAA led 10-8 after six minutes before clamping down defensively, allowing SFU just one field goal the rest of the first half. Wiggs poured in 20 points by the break to extend the lead to 30-13, equaling the fourth-fewest points ever allowed by a Seawolf team in the first half and the fewest in 16 years of GNAC play.

The Seawolves opened the second half with a 12-0 run until SFU guard and Anchorage native Iziah Sherman-Newsome hit a corner three-pointer to make it 42-16 with 16:13 remaining.

Wiggs shot 8 of 15 overall, 5 of 9 from long range and 13 of 15 at the foul line as the GNAC Preseason Player of the Year went over 30 points for the fourth game in a row. The Seattle native added a game-high seven rebounds and dished three assists on a night when he moved past Tony Turner (1,289 pts, 1977-80) for eighth place on UAA’s career scoring list.

Svejcar shot 6 of 11 from the field, 4 of 7 on treys and 6 of 6 at the free-throw line, while sophomore point guard Damien Fulp added eight points on 3-of-3 shooting, a team-high five assists, and two blocks, and senior center Connor Devine was a force on defense with five blocks.

The Seawolves head north for their next game on Tuesday (7 p.m.) at rival Alaska Fairbanks, where they will face a Nanooks squad that handed 13th-ranked Western Washington a 94-88 upset loss Saturday.

NOTES: Combined with 12-of-17 field-goal shooting in Thursday’s 87-79 win over WWU, Wiggs poured in 66 points on just 32 field goal attempts this week … UAA remained unbeaten in 17 games against the Clan since they became NCAA Div. II and GNAC members in 2010 … the Seawolves also moved to 13-0 at home this season to extend their longest winning streak at the 3-year-old Alaska Airlines Center … Fulp registered multiple blocks for the first time in his career and Devine had at least five blocks for the fifth time this year … with 51 blocks, Devine has risen to a tie for fourth place on UAA’s single-season list and is now within 12 of Serge Using’s program-record 63 blocks in 1998-99.
