ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Kyle Fossman and Jalen Little scored 14 points apiece, and Alaska-Anchorage rallied from an 11-point second-half deficit to defeat UC Riverside 66-65 on Friday afternoon in a Great Alaska Shootout consolation matchup.
Teancum Stafford added 10 points for the Division II Seawolves, including a 3-pointer with 2:29 left that gave Anchorage the lead for good, 64-62. Riverside had a chance to win in the final seconds, but Chris Harriel's 3-point attempt was off the mark.
The Highlanders (1-5) had led 56-45 after Dayton Boddie's layup with 8:56 to play before Anchorage closed the game on a 21-9 run.
The Seawolves move on to face the winner of Friday's Loyola Marymount-Texas State contest in the consolation final on Saturday, while the Highlanders will play the loser of that game.
