FAIRBANKS-As for GNAC Awards the Nanook women's basketball team won their first season opener in four years with an 87-72 win over the Western New Mexico Mustangs. A big part of the win was the play of freshman forward Jordan Wilson who was named GNAC Red Lion Player of the Week today.
Wilson posted 27 points and 12 rebounds-her first career double-double in her first game. She went 10 of 11 from the field. Her 90 percent shooting clip tied for second for a GNAC record for most made shots with one miss.
Wilson scored the most points and rebounds in a game for a Nanook since Jan. 2012. This week the Nanooks travel to Hawaii this weekend for four games.
