Alaska improves to 10-10 overall, and 8-5 in the GNAC.
The Nooks spoke after the marathon match about defeating their Canadian foes, and extending the streak.
"That, that is a defensive juggernaut for a team. I mean those guys are ridiculous as far as the defense that they play it's just so hard to get a ball to go down against them. And I think that's part of why it's so lopsided between games, because it's just crazy to try and put a ferial ball against those guys is just almost impossible," said Brian Scott, Alaska Nanooks Head Coach.
"I just wanted, first I just wanted to scream it all out, but then I was shaking and I was like ok, just kidding, but like it was so intense. I don't know, looking back I don't know where the energy was coming from all of us came from, because I know we were all playing to our hardest and I was amazed at the rallies we survived, worked out. Just as strong in the next rally, I am so glad everyone put their full effort, and I think it paid off," Lahra Weber, #11 - Alaska Nanooks.
" I mean, what fires me up most in those games is just watching our defense just get down on the floor and get these balls up. I mean, it fires me up which makes me want to work just as hard as they're doing back there. And I am going to put a ball down because they got it back up," said Kim Wong, #12 - Alaska Nanooks.
