SHOOTOUT COMMITTEE & SEAWOLF CAPTAINS cially hosted by the University of Alaska Anchorage, much of the behind-thescenes work for the GCI Great Alaska Shootout is handled by the Shootout Committee. Chaired this year by Alan Kajikawa (pictured), the committee is a volunteer group that donates its time and talents. Without question, the group has been a critical factor in the success the tournament has enjoyed. The committee assists in everything from coordinating extra practice times and volunteers to publicity, hospitality and more.

ALASKA AIRLINES CENTER n 2014, the GCI Great Alaska Shootout began a new era with its move to the University of Alaska Anchorage campus in the brand-new Alaska Airlines Center. Completed at a cost of $110 million, the state’s most modern sports and entertainment venue was christened with grand-opening ceremonies Sept. 5, 2014. With state-of-the-art scoreboards, video production and sound quality, the Alaska Airlines Center is a first-class venue for spectators and competitors alike. The main arena, with a seating capacity of 5,000, is home to Seawolf basketball and volleyball, while the gymnastics team competes in the 900-seat auxiliary gym and utilizes one of the top training facilities in the nation. UAA has already hosted the 2015 MPSF Gymnastics Championships and the NCAA Div. II West Regionals for both women’s basketball and volleyball, with plans now set to host the 2018

GNAC Basketball Championships as well. Behind the scenes, UAA student-athletes from all 13 sports utilize the Center’s high-tech sports medicine and weight training facilities, which include a HydroWorx hydrotherapy pool with underwater treadmill and an AlterG antigravity treadmill. Also home to UAA Commencement, high school state tournaments, concerts and numerous community events, the Alaska Airlines Center’s additional features include: • 600 parking spaces, with additional overflow capacity of 1,200 • 19 locker rooms • Student fitness center • Raven’s Nest walking track • Suite Level seating • Varsity Sports Grill restaurant

In

the Seawolf, the University of Alaska Anchorage has one of the more unique mascots in the country. Originally nicknamed the Sour­ doughs, UAA adopted the Seawolf moniker in 1977. The name Seawolf represents a mythical sea creature and, according to the legend of the Seawolf, anyone fortunate enough to view it was subject to good luck. The exact nature or shape of the Seawolf, however, was left to the imagination and thus the creature has been depicted in many forms throughout the years.

2017 GCI Great Alaska Shootout

The Seawolf of today was introduced in 1985. Created by the Clark Mishler & Associates Company of Anchorage in cooperation with a University committee, it represents an adaptation of a more traditional Alaska totemic-like characterization of the mythical Seawolf. The most recent makeover of the Seawolf, a University-wide project, was taken on in order to update the look of the UAA mascot into a more recognizable and marketable image. The University has trade­marked the logo.

WOMEN’S SHOOTOUT HISTORY ow in its 38th edition, the GCI Great Alaska Shootout women’s tournament has established a tradition of its own as one of the premier events in the game. This year’s Shootout marks the 19th straight year that a four-team women’s tourney is part of the November action. After hosting the Northern Lights Invitational women’s basketball tournament from 1980 to 1997, UAA was forced to suspend the tournament due to a significant round of budget reductions in the summer of 1998. The hiatus lasted only one year, though, and in 1999 the NLI was reborn in the form of the Shootout. And so it is that this year’s women’s Shootout field of host Alaska Anchorage, Binghamton, Maryland Eastern Shore and Tulsa will carry on the tradition of the Northern Lights – a tournament with a storied history of its own. The NLI opened as a four-team tournament in late March of 1980. In 1981 the tournament doubled in size to eight teams and remained that way through 1992. After changing to a fourteam, round-robin format for two seasons, the NLI and UAA went back to hosting seven visiting teams until 1997. One of the problems the NLI faced through the years was to find a consistent home on the calendar as NCAA women’s basketball expanded and organized along more traditional conference lines. The tournament dates were moved from March to February in 1982 to avoid conflicting with postseason play. The tournament later moved to January and then, in 1994, moved once again to December in order to attract the best NCAA Division I teams available. Over the years the NLI also moved homes three times, being held at both the Wells Fargo Sports Complex (1980-82, 1986-97) and Sullivan Arena (1983-85, 1999-2013). Through the years some of the top women’s collegiate basketball teams have played in the event – most notably the 1997 appearance and championship of a Tennessee Lady Volunteers team that featured All-American Chamique Holdsclaw. Other top teams have included Clem­son, Georgia, Iowa, Purdue, Old Domi­nion, Texas, Penn State, Louisiana Tech, North Carolina and Stanford. The 1986 field rates as one of the best in the tourney’s history as three teams – USC, Northeast Loui­si­ana and Western Kentucky were all ranked in the top 20 that year. The ’86 event also featured USC’s Cheryl Miller, the most heralded women’s player of her time. Like their male counterparts, the host UAA women’s basketball team has always been the lone NCAA Division II team in the tournament. And although the men have fared well in the Shootout, they have yet to win it – an impressive feat the women have pulled six times (1990, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009).

USC and hoops legend Cheryl Miller won their first two games in 1986 by a combined 130 points before falling 70-68 in the title game.

Three-time Most Outstanding Player Rebecca Kielpinski led the host Seawolves to a ‘three-peat’ in 2008 with a title-game win over Syracuse.

ith a 97-7 record and three Great Northwest Athletic Conference regular-season and tournament titles to its credit, the Alaska Anchorage women’s basketball team faces a new challenge as it approaches the 2017-18 season, attempting to blend seven newcomers with five accomplished veteran returners. Despite returning just one starter in Preseason All-GNAC junior guard Tara Thompson, the Seawolves face high expectations again, earning the favorite’s nod in the GNAC preseason coaches’ poll and premiering at No. 4 in the initial WBCA Div. II Top 25 poll. One of two players remaining from UAA’s 2016 NCAA Runner-up squad, Thompson was the team’s second-leading scorer last year at 8.9 ppg, while leading the GNAC and ranking sixth nationally with a .436 three-point percentage. Senior forward Shelby Cloninger, another Preseason All-GNAC honoree, averaged 8.3 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game in 2016-17, while junior center Hannah Wandersee put up 7.0 ppg, 4.1 rpg and shot .506 from the field, along with a team-high 24 blocks.

Shelby Cloninger Senior Forward

The Seawolves’ two backcourt returners are senior shooting guard Kaitlyn Hurley and sophomore point guard Yazmeen Goo. Hurley averaged 6.4 points and shot 39 percent from long range in 16 games last year, while Goo finished among the nation’s freshman leaders in both assists (4.1) and steals (1.7) per game. Alongside the veterans, all seven active newcomers are expected to play significant roles, including impact transfers Rainey Kuykendall (Trinity Valley [Texas] CC), Kian McNair (Portland State), Sydni Stallworth (two-time JC All-American at Pima [Ariz.] CC) and Rodericka Ware (Academy of Art).

or the first three years under head coach Linda Cimino, the Binghamton women’s basketball program featured a young team gaining experience on the court and improving in the America East standings. The potential was evident, as four players earned America East All-Rookie honors – the highest total of any conference team during that stretch. Heading into the 2017-18 campaign, however, the setting is quite different. Binghamton is now a talented veteran team, anchored by a pair of returning all-conference players in senior guard Imani Watkins and senior center Alyssa James. They are two of the Bearcats’ four returning starters from last year. Binghamton’s arrival as a top team in the America East was firmly acknowledged in the preseason voting. The Bearcats were the only team with two all-conference selections (Watkins and James) and received its highest ranking (third out of nine teams) since 2010. Watkins has emerged not just as one of the top players in the America East but as one of the top scorers in Binghamton history. She is a two-time all-conference selection, having earned first-team honors last year and second-team

accolades in 2016. Heading into her final season, she ranks fifth all time in program history with 1,468 career points. While Watkins is the top returning guard, James is unquestionably Binghamton’s top returning post player. She is the two-time America East Defensive Player of the Year and has twice been named all-conference (third team in 2016 and second team in 2017). She already holds the America East records for blocks in a game (11) and season (92) and ranks sixth all time with 160 career rejections. As a junior, James led the America East with 2.3 blocks per game and was third in the conference in rebounding (7.0 rpg.), eighth in steals (1.8 spg.) and 16th in scoring (11.0 ppg.).

• Since the opening of BU's Events Center in 2004, the Bearcats have led the America East Conference in attendance for seven of the past 12 seasons. • BU is the No. 8 public university and No. 15 overall in Forbes' 2016 'Best Value' ranking, and has been rated one of the nation's top 50 public universities for 18 consecutive years by U.S. News & World Report.

ll-time Eastern Shore winningest head coach Fred Batchelor returns for his 14th season at the helm as the Hawks pursue their first winning season since 2008-09 and first MEAC winning record in two years. Amidst an avalanche of injuries, the Hawks finished 13-16 in 2016-17 and advanced to the MEAC Tournament quarterfinals. The Shore returns a deep roster that includes three earlyseason starters, as well as two other players who started at least 10 games. Junior guard Ciani Byrom returns to the floor after suffering a season-ending injury in the first game of the conference slate. In the 12 games she played, she averaged a team-best 14.6 points and 4.5 assists per game. Byrom aims to return to her freshman form that saw her pick up All-MEAC Rookie Team and Eastern Shore team MVP honors. Senior guard Alexus Hicks filled in nicely

for the injured Byrom last season, scoring 7.6 points and dishing out 2.1 assists per game. With former first-team All-MEAC forward Moy Subritzky gone, senior center Tori Morris will pick it up in the post. She averaged 5.5 points and 5.2 boards per contest in 2016-17. With upperclass leadership combined with fresh talent from four freshmen and two graduate transfers, the Hawks could return to the top of the MEAC totem poll in 2017-18.

ulsa returns 10 letterwinners, including four starters, from last year’s team that finished the 201617 season with a 10-21 overall record and a 5-11 mark for a 9th-place finish in the American Athletic Conference. In Tulsa’s 21 losses last season, the Golden Hurricane lost 11 games by single digits, including eight by two baskets or fewer. TU also had a double-digit lead over four of those opponents before falling. While the Hurricane did struggle to finish games, the team had some positives to build upon, including the program's first-ever 100point scoring game (a 100-92 win over East Carolina), as well as ranking top 100 in the nation in fewest turnovers (448), free throw percentage (72.3) and three-pointers per game (6.6). The then-freshmen were bright spots, as Shug Dickson and Kendrian Elliott were tabbed to the American Athletic Conference AllFreshman Team, and Dickson, Elliott and Alexis Gaulden combined for six freshman-of-the-week

2017 GCI Great Alaska Shootout

MEN’S SHOOTOUT HISTORY The

GCI Great Alaska Shoot­ out began as a dream of Bob Rachal, who coached the University of Alaska Anchorage Seawolves during the 1977-78 season. Rachal, who died of cancer in 1985, wanted to put a fledgling UAA basketball program on the map and do it in style. With a personality reminiscent of a 19th century riverboat gambler, he parlayed an NCAA rule that said games outside the contiguous 48 states ­didn’t count against your normal allotment of 28, plus the lure of Alaska itself, into a winning hand. The big gamble was whether UAA and the community could attract big-name schools to the new tournament, in Alaska of all places. The gamble paid off. Coaches jumped at the chance to squeeze in three “free” games against topflight competition, not to mention the recruiting possibilities a trip to Alaska afforded. The first Sea Wolf Classic was played in November of 1978 in the 4,000-seat Buckner Field House at Fort Richardson near Anchorage. Each two-game session drew a disappointing

average of only 2,500 people, until fans filled the gym to capacity on Sunday night to see the Wolfpack from North Carolina State defeat Louisville to win the tournament’s first title. The inaugural event received national press attention and portions of the tournament were televised live to regional markets of the teams involved – a first for the state of Alaska. More important was the reaction of the visiting coaches, who praised the hospitality, the officiating, and most of all, the level of competition. Even as the first Sea Wolf Classic ended, plans were being made for hosting the second tournament, pending a review of the three-day event by UAA officials. In the end, they declared that the Classic was a success and should continue. And in 1979 it did. Only it wasn’t the Sea Wolf Classic anymore. It was now called the Great Alaska Shootout ­– a name reportedly coined by television commentator Billy Packer during regional television broadcasts of the initial tourney. Kentucky, led by guard Kyle Macy,

and Washington. Both Oklahoma and Utah – featuring future NBA No. 1 pick Andrew Bogut – went on to win their leagues, while Washington earned a No. 1 seed for March Madness. In 2007, the Shootout featured eventual top 10-ranked Butler, NCAA Tournament darling Western Kentucky, and all-time college basketball wins leader Bob Knight in his last go-round with Texas Tech. This decade, the Shootout has been the national coming-out party for a 2011-12 Murray State team that vaulted into the top 10 and posted a 31-2 record, a 2013-14 Harvard squad that went 27-5, won the Ivy League and sprung an NCAA Tournament upset of Cincinnati, and a Middle Tennessee team that stunned national-title con-

defeated Jeff Ruland-led Iona for the 1979 title. Regardless of the name, the holiday event was now well on its way to acceptance both at home and among the nation’s top hoops teams. Soon it was called “the best kept secret in basketball.” But the secret was out, and UAA’s sports program, the state of Alaska and major college basketball are all the better for it. In 1983, the Shootout moved from its original confines at Buckner into a newly constructed municipal sports facility in midtown Anchorage, the Sullivan Arena. Named for former Anchorage mayor George Sullivan, it was part of Anchorage’s Project 80s, in which oil wealth was turned into a series of major public building projects. The $30 million facility gave the Shootout twice the number of seats. In the early 1990s, the Shootout faced an obstacle that couldn’t be solved through local help alone. The NCAA passed legislation to push the start of the basketball season back to Dec. 1, threatening the existence of the Thanksgiving tournament. But then-coach Harry Larrabee and former athletic director Ron Petro went to work, crisscrossing the country to gain support for an exemption for the Shootout. Fortunately for Anchorage basketball fans, their efforts were not in vain and the Shootout was granted the exemption it needed to continue as the premier in-season basketball tournament in the nation. From 1994-98 the event became the Carrs Great Alaska Shootout, and from 1999-2013 was the Carrs/Safeway Great Shootout. In 2014, the tournament entered a new era with statewide telecommunications leader GCI becoming the title sponsor. The defending national champion has taken part in the tournament five times, although not since Kentucky’s visit in 1996. North Carolina State was the first, starting the defense of its 1983 title in Anchorage. Two years later, Villanova played in the 1985 Shootout after winning a national title earlier that spring. Louisville (1986) and Kansas (1988) have also played in the Shootout after winning national titles. Duke, the 1998 Shootout runner-up team featuring Anchorage’s own Trajan Langdon, began its run to the 1999 Final Four here. In 1997-98 North Carolina started its trek to the Final Four at the Shootout as did Kentucky in 1996-97 and Duke in 2003-04. With the turn of the century, the Shootout continued to be a springboard to success. The entire 2003 Final Four field featured teams who had all made Shootout appearances since 1999 – Kansas (1999 champion), Syracuse (2000 champion), Marquette (2001 champion) and Texas (2001, 5th place). Indiana made the 2002 NCAA Final after placing third at the Shootout. The 2004 Shootout saw one of the strongest fields ever, producing five NCAA Tournament teams – Alabama, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Utah

tender Michigan State in the 2016 NCAAs. Last year's field was another underrated bunch as well, sporting three program's that qualified for March Madness, including champ Iona. With Loyola Chicago’s appearance in 2015, 30 of the 35 programs that have won the NCAA men’s basketball title have made the pilgrimage north; only Wisconsin, Holy Cross, CCNY, La Salle and UTEP have not played in the Shootout at one time or another. In fact, with Villanova’s 2016 coronation, the last 50 NCAA champions have appeared in the Shootout. On Nov. 25, 2017, the Shootout will hold its 477th and final game, crowning its 40th champion on the floor of the Alaska Airlines Center.

MEN’S SHOOTOUT NOTES

Seawolves have never shied away from playing the best teams in college basketball. On more than a few occasions, they have proved to be giant killers against that tough competition. UAA regularly plays at least three games each season against Division I programs, and the team takes pride in its success against quality foes. Perhaps the most memorable moment in UAA basketball history came when the Seawolves knocked off No. 2-ranked Michigan 70-66 at the Utah Seiko Classic during the 1988-89 season – the same year the Wolverines won the NCAA title. Following is a list of the 46 Division I programs that have fallen victim to the Seawolves: Auburn Ball State California Canisius Dayton Drake Drexel Eastern Kentucky Grambling State High Point Houston

Houston Baptist Idaho Iona Jackson State Lafayette Louisiana Tech Loyola Marymount Maine Miami (Fla.) Michigan Missouri

Missouri-Kansas City Montana New Mexico Nicholls State Notre Dame Pacific Penn State Rhode Island Rice Samford San Francisco

fter back-to-back 21-win seasons, the Alaska Anchorage men’s basketball team will take on a decidedly new look in 2017-18, featuring 12 newcomers and no starters among its lone three returning veterans. Luckily for 14th-year head coach Rusty Osborne – the winningest coach in program history – the Seawolves have reloaded with proven talent. Among the dozen new faces are four Div. I transfers and two junior-college standouts who will be instantly thrust into major roles. Joining the Seawolves from Div. I University of the Pacific is the senior trio of 5-10 guard Maleke Haynes, 6-9 forward Jacob Lampkin and 6-4 guard D.J. Ursery. Lampkin averaged 6.4 points and 4.7 rebounds in 17.5 minutes per game for the Tigers last year, while Ursery has joined him as a Preseason All-GNAC selection after averaging 6.0 points and 1.3 assists. An LA native like Ursery, Haynes played in 52 career games at UOP, averaging 2.5 points and 1.9 assists. Meanwhile, former North Dakota State guard Malik Clements joins the fray after posting 6.3 ppg and 2.5 rpg for the Bison last year, notching six double-figure scoring efforts.

Rusty Osborne Head Coach

Jacob Lampkin Senior Forward

From the JC ranks, the Seawolves have added swingman Josiah Wood and combo guard Jack Macdonald. Wood was a two-time allconference selection at Butte (Calif.) College and the Sierra League player of the year as a senior at Reno’s Galena High School, while Macdonald averaged 10.8 points and earned First Team All-North Coast Conference honors in his lone season at Ohlone (Calif.) College. The most veteran player in the program is junior forward Brian Pearson, who appeared in 40 games his first two seasons prior to redshirting in 2016-17. Pearson’s redshirt partner last year was senior guard Drew Peterson, who showed impressive flashes as a reserve in 2015-16 when he shot a team-best 50 percent from long range.

s the 2017-18 season gets under way, the watchword for Central Michigan appears to be depth – perhaps the most depth featured by a Keno Davis-led team since he took the helm of the program in 2012. Gone to the professional ranks are the ultraproductive Marcus Keene and Braylon Rayson, who combined to score 51.2 points per game, the most by a backcourt tandem in the NCAA in 2016-17. Replacing those numbers will fall to not just one or two players but the bulk of the Chippewa roster. One aspect that will remain steady is the uptempo, high-scoring, entertaining offensive style that has become the Chippewas' trademark under Davis. That scheme has produced a scoring average that ranks in or near the top 10 in the NCAA and helped to rack up 56 wins over the past three seasons, the most by a CMU team since 1966-68. Leading the long-range charge will be guard Josh Kozinski, who entered the season needing just 36 threes to break the CMU career record. Senior forward Luke Meyer has started all 97 games in his first three seasons in Mount Pleasant, and provides a dual threat at 6-11, capable of scoring both in the paint and beyond the arc.

Josh Kozinski Senior Guard

Another inside-outside player, Cecil Williams made his presence felt in his first season as a Chippewa, shooting .478 from the field, .438 from three-point range and .791 from the free throw line. Williams displayed a knack for getting to the line, scoring 35 percent of his points from the charity stripe. He also topped CMU in rebounding at 6.0 rpg. Sophomore forward David DiLeo is the team’s leading returning scorer after averaging 8.5 points per game as a freshman. DiLeo made 64 treys and tied for the team lead with an .848 free throw percentage. He flashed his dynamic ability when he scored a season-high 22 points on the road at Northern Illinois and notched double-doubles versus Tennessee Tech and Chicago State.

CMU TRIVIA • The Chippewas have set program records for three-pointers the last two seasons, making 324 in 2015-16 and 399 in 2016-17. • Central Michgian founded one of the nation's newest medical schools in 2009 and celebrated its first graduating class of 62 doctors on May 7, 2017.

COFC TRIVIA • Prior to its first year as a NCAA Div. I member in 1991-92, Charleston's run to the 1983 NAIA national title came by one of the narrowest margins in college hoops history, winning its last four games 64-62 in OT vs Panhandle State, 67-62 vs Santa Fe, 66-65 vs Chaminade and 57-53 vs West Viriginia Wesleyan.

he College of Charleston men’s basketball team was picked as the preseason Colonial Athletic Association favorite by the league’s head coaches and media members, receiving 38 of the possible 40 first-place votes. This will be the Cougars’ third all-time appearance in the GCI Great Alaska Shootout, along with successful trips in 1996 (runners-up) and 2002 (champions). Last season, CAA Coach of the Year Earl Grant led his talented squad to a 25-10 overall record and 14-4 mark in league play, earning the program’s first 20-win campaign since 201213. The Cougars advanced to the championship game of the CAA Tournament for the first time since joining the Colonial in 2013 and made their fifth all-time appearance in the Postseason NIT – their first postseason berth since 2011. Charleston finished one game out of first place in the regular season, posted an impressive 10-4 road record and went up against strong nonconference opponents. For the second straight year, the Cougars were one of the most improved teams in NCAA Division I and ranked among the top defensive

ballclubs in the country. In addition, Charleston was ranked for 13 consecutive weeks in the CollegeInsider.com Mid-Major Top 25 Poll and ranked as high as No. 11. The Cougars welcome back their entire starting lineup from a year ago, including two of the top players in the league in senior guard and preseason CAA Player of the Year Joe Chealey (17.7 ppg) and junior forward Jarrell Brantley (14.2 ppg). The duo combined for 46.2 percent of the team’s scoring in 2016-17. Both were tabbed to the preseason All-CAA First Team, while sophomore guard Grant Riller was selected to the All-CAA Second Team after averaging 13.1 points per game in his rookie campaign.

he CSU Bakersfield men’s basketball team enters another season on the heels of continued success after experiencing its second straight season with exposure on the national level. In 2016-17, the Roadrunners made a run through the National Invitational Tournament, eventually competing inside Madison Square Garden in the NIT semifinals, where the team’s magical run was ended in a loss against Georgia Tech. Arguably the most vital piece of the personnel puzzle this season will be redshirt senior Brent Wrapp. The native of Boulder, Colo. will continue to be CSUB’s floor general, having led the `Runners and the Western Athletic Conference in assist-to-turnover ratio each of his first three seasons. In order for Wrapp to earn his assists, he will need help from CSUB’s offensive weapons, like redshirt junior Damiyne Durham, who returns as the team’s leading scorer (12.7 ppg) and is an ever-dangerous three-point threat. The Texas native is coming off his second season

with CSUB, during which he broke the school record for three-pointers made in a season with 97. Durham is also on pace to break the CSUB career three-pointer record and has a chance to accomplish that feat in just his third year with the `Runners. Coach Rod Barnes also expects increased offensive output from more of his returners, such as seniors Fallou Ndoye, Shon Briggs, Moataz Aly, and James Suber. Other `Runner returners who will continue to play important roles are redshirt junior Bray Barnes and sophomore Taze Moore.

BAKERSFIELD TRIVIA • Before moving to Div. I in 2007, CSU Bakersfield made 21 NCAA Div. II Tournament appearances between 1973 and 2006, winning national titles in 1993, 1994 and 1997. • The six buildings comprising CSUB's original dorm complex are named after locations in J.R.R.

he Idaho Vandals enter the 2017-18 season with high expectations. With the secondhighest scoring senior class in the country coming back for one more run in Moscow, the Vandals are poised for an excellent campaign. Head coach Don Verlin, the winningest coach in program history, is back for his 10th season with the Vandals and has reloaded the roster with an incredible freshman class of six. Last year’s Vandals finished 19-14 overall, including a 12-6 mark in Big Sky play to finish tied for third. Idaho advanced to the Big Sky Tournament semifinals before falling to eventual champion North Dakota. The Vandals then qualified for the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament, defeating Stephen F.

Preseason All-Big Sky honoree Victor Sanders will be joining Callandret in the backcourt,

despite testing the NBA waters in the offseason. The rest of the conference has taken notice, picking the Vandals as the preseason favorite with Idaho earning 10 of a possible 11 first-place votes in the annual coaches’ poll. The media poll followed suit, with Idaho the heavy favorites there as well. Led by Sanders' 20.9 ppg average and Brayon Blake's 10.0 ppg average, the Vandals have six players who posted at least five points per contest last season, plus 31-game starter Jordan Scott, who posted 4.9 points and 4.2 rebounds in a modest 23.4 minutes per game.

IDAHO TRIVIA • The leading scorer in Idaho and Big Sky Conference history with 2,102 points, Orlando Lightfoot (1991-94) began his Vandal career by earning all-tournament honors in the 1991 GCI Great Alaska Shootout. • Idaho’s nickname was coined a century ago by sportswriter Harry Lloyd 'Jazz' McCarty, who wrote that Coach Hec Edmundson's 1917-18 team played defense with such intensity and ferocity that they “vandalized” their opponents.

ith all-Southland Con­ ference point guard John Dewey III and senior forward Chris Galbreath Jr. back for 2017-18, head coach Jason Hooten knows that his Bearkat squad has the foundation in place for what is proving to be one of the most consistent winning programs in the Southland Conference. Under Hooten, the Bearkats have won at least 20 games in three of the last four seasons, including 21 a year ago, while no Sam Houston head coach has had more wins in their first seven years at the helm. This year, however, they will have to deal with the loss of five seniors – including three 1,000-point scorers – and will look to do so behind Dewey, Galbreath and a slew of nine new faces. Dewey averaged 10.0 points a year ago and ranked second in the SLC with 4.9 assists per game on his way to earning all-league honors in his first year in Huntsville. Now, as a junior, he will look to take another step forward as one

of the league’s premier point guards. He will be flanked by Galbreath, a rangy, 6-7 forward from Chicago who was twice named the league’s player of the week and scored in double figures in nine of the final 10 games last season. The addition of San Diego transfer Marcus Harris should provide an immediate offensive impact, while the Paris JC duo of Abrian Edwards and Devin Jackson each look to be front runners for starting jobs as the season tips off.

SHSU TRIVIA • SHSU's nickname likely came from a popular local saying of the time, “Tough as a Bearkat!” Since the animal in the saying is more mythical than real, the settled upon spelling became Bearkat. • Founded in 1879 and located 70 miles north of Houston, SHSU is the third-oldest public college in Texas and the oldest teachers' college.

SEAWOLF ATHLETICS

W

hen it comes to success stories, the GCI Great Alaska Shootout is just the beginning for the University of Alaska Anchorage athletic department. In their relatively short history (since 1977), Seawolf teams and individual athletes have established a great tradition of success – none greater than in recent seasons. UAA sponsors 13 NCAA sports, with men’s ice hockey and women’s gymnastics competing at the Division I level. The Seawolves’ other squads – men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s skiing, women’s volleyball, men’s and women’s outdoor track & field, and men’s & women’s indoor track & field – all compete under the Division II banner. True student-athletes, the Seawolves have achieved a plus-3.20 combined GPA each of the past two years, while producing 14 conference titles, 18 NCAA team finishes – including national runner-up efforts for women’s basketball and volleyball – and 53 All-Americans in that span. UAA has also placed in the top 20 (of 300+ schools) of the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup rankings the last two years, with a programrecord rank of No. 8 in 2015-16. MEN’S & WOMEN’S BASKETBALL: The UAA hoopsters have established themselves as annual contenders, with the women coming off back-toback-to-back GNAC regular-season and tournament titles. In 2008, UAA became just the second Division II school ever to send its men’s and women’s squads to the NCAA Semifinals in the same season, and both programs have advanced to the NCAA title game (men in 1988, women in 2016). The Seawolf men have posted 12 straight winning seasons. MEN’S & WOMEN’S CROSS COUNTRY: On the trails, coach Michael Friess has established his teams as national contenders year-in and year-out. The men's team has won seven of the last eight Great Northwest Athletic Conference titles and produced an individual national champion along the way, while this year's women's squad could challenge for a podium finish, led by GNAC and West Region champion Caroline Kurgat. GYMNASTICS: Since moving up to the Div. I ranks in 2003, the Seawolf gymnasts have regularly challenged programs from the nation’s top conferences, such as Kentucky, Iowa and BYU, and continue to establish new school records. With their new top-flight training facility at the Alaska Airlines Center, the Seawolves achieved two of the top seasons in program history in 2015 and 2016. HOCKEY: UAA’s original Div. I program, the Seawolf hockey team skates in the storied Western Collegiate Hockey Association, where it is re-establishing a proud tradition under 5th-year head coach Matt Thomas.

MEN’S & WOMEN’S SKIING: While UAA’s ski program is technically Division II, teams from all three NCAA divisions compete on a level playing field at the sport’s national meet. The Seawolves are consistently best among nonDivision I programs, placing in the overall top 10 at NCAAs for 31 of the past 33 seasons and producing nine individual NCAA champions. MEN’S & WOMEN’S TRACK & FIELD: Having competed as a fully sponsored sport since only 2005 and entering just their sixth year of indoor competition, the Seawolves have already produced an amazing 107 All-America certificates and seven individual NCAA titles. Decathlete Cody Thomas became UAA's latest national champion in 2016, while the Seawolves men and

women combined to take three of the four GNAC team titles in 2017. VOLLEYBALL: The Seawolf volleyball team has become a perennial contender in the NCAA West Region and the nation, advancing to its first NCAA Title Match in 2016. The two-time defending GNAC champions are on pace to lead all of NCAA Div. II in attendance for the third straight year in 2017 – averaging more than 1,000 fans per match – with the team's success largely driven by Alaska-grown talents such as Morgan Hooe (South Anchorage), Leah Swiss (Dimond), Chrisalyn Johnson (Dimond) and Taylor Noga (East Anchorage).

The Municipality of Anchorage

laska’s most populous city is home to more than a few surprises. Aside from the human population of nearly 300,000, it is home to 1,500 moose and copious other wildlife. More than 50 glaciers stand in the nearby Chugach Mountains, one of the largest state parks in the nation. It’s the best mix of iconic Alaska and urban amenities. More than 135 miles of paved trails wind through the city, and salmon can be caught within the city limits. But Anchorage

also has a bustling downtown – complete with high-rises, nightlife and one of the nation’s fastest-growing culinary scenes. Anchorage is at the center of road, rail and air travel inside the state, making it a natural fit for visitors hoping to experience Alaska. Activities from the city range from bear viewing to glacier trekking, kayaking to gold panning. Pair adventure opportunities with Anchorage’s outstanding hotels, restaurants,

local breweries, and homegrown arts, and it’s a perfect place to explore no matter the season. Thanksgiving weekend is a special time for Anchorage. The GCI Great Alaska Shootout headlines a holiday weekend packed with events. The Town Square tree lighting, the Anchorage Museums craft fair and seasonal exhibits, and other big sporting events all combine to keep Anchorage jumping.

The State of Alaska

laska is the largest state in the union — one-fifth the size of the ­contiguous 48 states and more than twice the size of the second-largest state, Texas. Although Minnesota is called the Land of 10,000 Lakes, Alaska holds the real title in that department with more than three million lakes. Alaska also boasts 39 different mountain ranges, three of which can be seen from Anchorage, and an estimated 100,000 glaciers. The 49th State is home to Denali, the highest peak in North America (20,320 feet). Formerly known as Mt. McKinley, the colossal mountain is located in the heart of Denali National Park and Preserve, located 200 miles north of Anchorage, and can be seen from the city on clear days.
