Alaska's late comeback falls short

FAIRBANKS-Up on the hill Thursday night the UAF women's basketball team was looking for a GNAC win. The Nooks led 36-32 over Northwest Nazarene at the half but we go late in the game-the Crusaders rallied and were up 75-69 then the Nanooks went off from three.

UAF nailed five threes in last 72 seconds of the game. Candice Prestwich, Victoria Milton and Kailee Skjold were all trying to pull off the comeback.

Alaska went 14-30 from deep-a single game school record for a GNAC game and 7th all time in a GNAC game

Both teams had 5 players in double digits. But the Crusaders went 11-12 from the free throw line in the last minute to secure the 86-81 win.

The Nanooks face the slumping Central Washington Wildcats today at 3 p.m.
