Baker earns second Nanook of the week award

FAIRBANKS-The men's basketball team rebounded well on Saturday.

After losing a nail-biter to Western Oregon on Saturday the Nooks used their defense to dispatch St. Martin's 66-46 to clinch a GNAC tournament spot.. They allowed just 15 points and six made shots in the first half.

On offense UAF was balanced with six players with at least six points. Ronnie Baker scored 10 and today was selected as this week's Ravn Alaska Nanook of the week. He scored 30 points on 12-21 shooting with six boards and seven assists in last week's two games. He scored 20 in the 71-70 loss to Western Oregon.

The season finale is against UAA this Thursday and playoff seeding is at stake. Beat UAA and the Nooks clinch third if not they get fourth.
