ANCHORAGE – Senior point guard Kiki Robertson scored 12 points and dished eight assists and junior forward Shelby Cloninger scored a career-high 18 points Tuesday to help 3rd-ranked Alaska Anchorage to an 89-48 women’s basketball rout of Alaska Fairbanks at the Alaska Airlines Center.

The Seawolves (18-1, 11-0 GNAC) also got a game-high 21 points from senior forward Autummn Williams as they ran their winning streak to 14 games overall and 20 in the head-to-head series against their oldest rivals.

The Nanooks (9-9, 5-6) – who had won three in a row and five of their last seven – were led by 17 points and nine rebounds from Kaillee Skjold, plus 13 points and five rebounds from senior forward Jordan Wilson.

UAF led 4-2 on a pair of early buckets by Wilson, but the Great Northwest Athletic Conference’s second-leading scorer picked up her second foul at the 7:31 mark of the first quarter and played only 19 minutes on the evening.

With Wilson sidelined, the Seawolves snapped a 10-10 tie with 16 consecutive points and led 26-15 before she reentered midway through the second quarter. UAA went up 37-15 on Tara Thompson’s three-pointer with 3:41 left before halftime and led by at least 20 the rest of the way.

Williams led UAA in scoring for the 16th time in 19 games and added three assists, while Cloninger continued her recent strong play by shooting 4 of 5 from three-point range, 4 of 4 at the foul stripe, and collecting five rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block. The North Idaho College transfer surpassed her previous career high of 15 points, set in the season opener against Cal State LA.

Freshman Kimijah King was the fourth Seawolf in double figures with 10 points (4-6 FG, 1-1 3FG), while Alysha Devine added nine points on 3-of-6 shooting and three steals, and sophomore forward Hannah Wandersee collected six points (3-5 FG), six rebounds and two blocks.

On a night when she was honored in a pregame ceremony for becoming UAA’s and the GNAC’s career steals leader, Robertson nabbed two swipes to run her total to 341. Robertson and freshman point guard Yazmeen Goo combined for 12 assists and just one turnover against the Nanooks, helping UAA commit a season-low eight turnovers as a team.

The Seawolves play the second of four consecutive home games when they host Montana State Billings (6-12, 3-7) on Thursday in a rematch of last year’s GNAC Tournament title game. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m., with tickets available by calling 907-786-1562. More information is available at

NOTES: UAA’s 20-game win streak against UAF is the longest in the 96-game head-to-head series and its second-longest against any opponent (26 vs Western Oregon, current) … the victory stretched UAA’s home win streak in the series to 12 … King scored double figures for the fifth time in the last eight games and Williams reached the 20-point threshold for the ninth time this season.
