The Shootout, Nov. 25-29, will be held at the school’s new 5,000-seat Alaska Airlines Center, which is scheduled to open in the fall.

The Seawolves women will entertain Yale in their opening game of the four-team women’s tournament Tuesday, Nov. 25. UAA’s men open against Pacific on Wednesday, Nov. 26, in the eight-team field.
