ANCHORAGE – Guard Suki Wiggs had 26 points, nine rebounds and five assists to lead a big day for the Alaska Anchorage seniors Saturday in an 84-72 men’s basketball victory over Central Washington in their regular-season finale at the Alaska Airlines Center.

UAA (21-7, 15-5 GNAC) also got 21 points and five rebounds from guard Spencer Svejcar, 18 points and five assists from point guard Diante Mitchell, and 14 rebounds from forward Corey Hammell to completed its home campaign with a 16-0 record and earn a season sweep of the visitors from Ellensburg.

The Wildcats (14-12, 9-11) were led by 24 points from senior guard Dom Hunter as they were eliminated from postseason contention.

UAA trailed 7-0 at the outset before Svejcar cracked the ice with a three-pointer, and the Seawolves pulled ahead at 25-24 on two free throws by Wiggs. Mitchell made it 35-28 with two more charities at the 2:39 mark, but the Wildcats rallied for the last seven points and a halftime tie.

The Wildcats surged ahead 42-41 early in the second half before UAA took control, using a short hook shot by Connor Devine and a trey by Wiggs to spark a 12-2 run. Svejcar swished one of his five three-pointers to make it 59-47 with 9:33 remaining, and the Seawolves would lead by double digits throughout.

UAA – ranked No. 9 in the NCAA Div. II West Region – also got solid efforts from Devine (7 points, 2 blocks) and junior guard Ashton Pomrehn (5 points, 2 assists, career-high 7 rebounds) as it kept its NCAA Tournament hopes alive.

The Seawolves will be the No. 2 seed for the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Tournament, which begins Thursday in Lacey, Wash., with the quarterfinal round. UAA will have a bye and face the winner of the game between 3rd-seeded Western Oregon and a to-be-determined No. 6 seed in Friday night’s semifinals.
