UAF men's basketball team clinches GNAC tournament berth

FAIRBANKS-The Nanook men's basketball team faced the Saint Martins Saints after a tough loss on Thursday to Western Oregon.

Against Saint Martins, the Nanook defense would again shine as they hold the Saints to only 46 points on the evening, including a stout first half that left a 30-15 halftime advantage for Alaska. 

Senior Stefan Tica led all Nanook scorers with 12 points, as they spread the ball throughout the roster to the tune of 66 points.  This win puts the Nanooks into GNAC postseason play for the second straight year and sets up a showdown with the UAA Seawolves this Thursday at the Patty Center.  Winner of that rivalry game clinches third in the Conference.
