Seawolves announce 2014-15 women’s basketball schedule

By KTVA Sports 5:06 PM July 16, 2014
ANCHORAGE –

University of Alaska Anchorage women’s basketball head coach Ryan McCarthy announced his team’s schedule for the 2014-15 season – the Seawolves’ first in the brand-new Alaska Airlines Center – on Wednesday.

UAA, coming off an 19-9 campaign and an NCAA Tournament berth, opens Nov. 5 with an exhibition game at NCAA Div. I foe Utah.

The Seawolves host their home openers with regular-season contests against Holy Names and Chaminade in the GNAC/Pac West Conference Challenge, Nov. 14-15, followed by a pair of inter-region matchups against Christian Brothers (Tenn.), Nov. 20-21.

UAA will take the Alaska Airlines Center court for its annual GCI Great Alaska Shootout on Nov. 25-26, facing Yale in the first round and either Long Beach State or Boise State the next day.

December brings and early start to Great Northwest Athletic Conference play when UAA travels south for league games at defending champion Montana State Billings (Dec. 4) and longtime rival Seattle Pacific (Dec. 6). Five more home games dot the schedule for that month as the Seawolves face McKendree (Ill.) on Dec. 13-14, Texas A&M Kingsville and Pacific (Ore.) in the UAA Hoops Classic, Dec. 19-20, and West Region opponent Hawaii Pacific on Dec. 21.

The GNAC slate resumes with a New Year’s Day tilt against Northwest Nazarene and a Jan. 3 battle against Central Washington at the Alaska Airlines Center. Mid-January brings a key three-game homestand against Alaska Fairbanks (Jan. 17), Western Washington (Jan. 22) and Simon Fraser (Jan. 24), and February features home clashes with Saint Martin’s (Feb. 5), Western Oregon (Feb. 7), Seattle Pacific (Feb. 26) and MSU Billings (Jan. 28).

The fifth annual GNAC Championships move this year to the MSU Billings campus, Mar. 4-7, with the NCAA Div. II West Regional Championships set for Mar. 13-16 at a to-be-determined campus host site.
