FAIRBANKS-The Nanook women's basketball team started their 2013-2014 season with a win last night against the Mustangs of Western New Mexico.
The Nanooks were ahead 43-35 at haltime powered by freshman Jordan Wilson's performance who had a heck of a debut-27 points and 12 boards. It was Wilson's first career double double in her first career game for the Nanooks.
UAF shot a nice 60 percent for the game while holding the Mustangs to half that were plus 12 in the paint and in second chance points. RaTonya Newsome had 19 points to lead the Mustangs.
Wilson was the only double figure scorer but the Nanooks had six players score at least six points in the 87-72 victory. The first season opening win four years for UAF.
