ANCHORAGE -

Emily Craft's 16 points off the bench led five Seawolves in double figures as the UAA women posted an impressive 87-71 win on Thursday over Simon Fraser, the second ranked team in the NCAA Division II west region.

The Seawolves, who were not even in the regional poll's top 10 despite an overall record of 16-6 coming into the week, improve to 10-5 in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.  All of their remaining games are against schools in the poll. 

Kiki Robertson filled the stat sheet again for UAA, scoring 14 points with seven assists and three steals.

The UAA men also won on Thursday, downing St. Martin's 88-76 to move to 9-7 in conference play.  Brian McGill delivered 27 points for UAA while Kyle Fossman added 18 on five three-pointers.  In fact, the Seawolves connected on 13 shots from beyond the arc.  

On Saturday, both Seawolf teams play their final home games at the Wells Fargo Sports Complex.  The ladies tip off against Western Washington at 5:15.  The men follow at 7:30 with a game against Western Oregon.
