Men's 2012-13 schedule set

June 13, 2012 

UAA's men's basketball team will face its usual grinding schedule in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference next season and also its usual test against Division I opponents in its Carrs/Safeway Great Alaska Shootout.

Those are the highlights of the Division II Seawolves' 27-game schedule in 2012-13, when UAA will play 18 home games. Also on the schedule released by the school Wednesday are an exhibition game against Division I Troy University (10-18 last season) in Alabama and six nonconference home games.

All nine of UAA's road games will be in the GNAC.

Following that Nov. 5 game at Troy, the Seawolves get rolling for real with their AT&T Jamboree, Nov. 9-10, at the Wells Fargo Sports Complex. UAA in that tournament will play Colorado Christian (4-24 last season) and Colorado State-Pueblo (13-13). Also in the four-team Jamboree is UAF (5-23).

UAA went 23-7 last season and advanced to the NCAA Division II tournament.
