Published On: Nov 27 2013 07:25:33 PM AKST

The Georgetown Hoyas fought off a strong effort by the hometown UAA Seawolves to earn the women's Great Alaska Shootout title on Wednesday, 92-78.  The Seawolves, the only Division II program in the field, were gunning for their 5th Shootout title since 2006.  UAA drops the championship game for the second straight year.

Senior guard Kylie Burns scored 23 points to lead the Seawolves on 5 for 7 shooting from three point range.  Alli Madison chipped in 16 for UAA, which falls to 5 and 1 overall on the young season.

The Hoyas were led by Andrea White's 23 points and 11 rebounds.  Georgetown had a distinct height advantage against the smaller Seawolves.  6-foot-5 freshman Natalie Butler dominated the paint with 18 points and 21 rebounds.

In Wednesday's consolation game, UC Riverside downed Nicholls State 74-64 to claim third pace.  The Highlanders, who lost to the Seawolves in double overtime in the semifinals, got 29 points from Emani White.
