By  | 

The Alaska Nanooks women's basketball GNAC losing streak was extended to 26 after their loss to the Simon Fraser Clan.
The Nooks lost 59-46 despite holding a halftime lead against their Canadian foes.
Alaska was up three heading into the break, but getting outscored 29-13 in the second half slowed their momentum down.
Sophie Swant lead the Clan from the floor, getting 18 points and 9 boards.
On the other side of the court, Marian Wamsley led the Nanooks with 16 points and 7 rebounds.
The Nooks struggled from downtown going 3-11 on a night where the offense couldn't find its footing in the third and fourth quarter.
The charity stripe wasn't in favor for Alaska, who shot a poultry 44 percent going 7-16 as a team.
Head Coach Kerri Nakamoto spoke after Alaska's GNAC loss, saying, "I mean it's a quick turnaround to Anchorage I didn't like that and we will only have one practice before we go down there. I don't know who made the conference schedule; we are playing like the heavy hitters all in a row, but I think it's good because it is exposing some things for us and it will make a big difference for us as conference progresses."

The Nanooks will look to rebound tomorrow night against the Anchorage Seawolves on the road.
The Seawolves are 3-1 in the GNAC, currently sitting in second in the conference.
This match-up is at 7 p.m. in Anchorage.
