The Rewind: UAA hockey upsets No. 9 ranked Providence while Anchorage Wolverines sweep Fairbanks again

Welcome to The Rewind, a weekly digest that puts a spotlight on the biggest stories and best performances from Alaska’s world of sports.

This past week featured several notable team and individual performances across the Alaska sports landscape at the prep, collegiate and professional levels. Several of the top high school basketball teams at the 4A and 3A divisions experienced the bitter taste of defeat for the first time. On the college scene, the University of Alaska Anchorage women’s basketball team extended its winning streak while the UAA hockey team beat a nationally ranked opponent for the second time this season. Outside the state, several Alaskans had impressive performances both domestically and internationally at the collegiate and professional level.

Headlines and highlights

The 2024 Alaska Airlines Classic tournaments saw dominant performances on both the boys and girls side. Among the local teams, none were more dominant than the two-time defending 4A girls state champion Mountain City Christian Academy Lions although it didn’t start off that way. Previously known as Anchorage Christian School, the Lions faced their toughest test in their very first game of the round-robin tournament but were able to keep their historic winning streak alive and gain more confidence after coming from behind to beat reigning 3A champion Grace Christian 54-44 on Tuesday night.

“It feels good to stay undefeated just because nobody really believes in us and they’re such a good team that it feels even better to get the win,” MCCA sophomore guard Keelie Kronberger said.

The Lions went on to win their next two games on the way to winning the tournament trophy with blowout victories over 4A contender West Anchorage and two-time defending 2A state champion Tikigaq.

The boys tournament featured some elite Outside talent from as far east as New York and as far south as Georgia but it was St. Joseph from Santa Maria, California, which came and conquered. Led by star junior forward Tounde Yessoufou, the Knights slayed local and fellow visiting competition alike on their way to winning the tournament for the second time in the last three years.


“It feels great to come up here and just keep winning,” Yessoufou said. “I’ll always remember this moment and being able to win with my teammates has been an amazing memory-making experience for me.”

The Division I-bound superstar earned tournament MVP honors again and rewrote the Classic’s record books in the process with his dominance by racking up 105 points in three days. He scored 42 points in the championship game alone in a 74-47 blowout of defending Alaska 4A state champion Bettye Davis East Anchorage on Saturday night before having to catch a late flight.

“I didn’t know what the record was, I just came here to dominate,” Yessoufou said. “I just embraced the challenge and just kept playing.”

One of the biggest regular season prep cross-country skiing events took place at Kincaid Park this past weekend with the annual Lynx Loppet and 400 student-athletes hit the trails in search of glory. Underclassmen swept the podium and occupied the top five spots in the girls division led by Service standout sophomore Olivia Soderstrom. She won Friday’s 5.6-kilometer classic race by nearly 39 seconds and extended her lead to 82 seconds by winning Saturday’s 5.3K freestyle pursuit with a time of 33:54.4. Kenai Central would’ve swept the podium in the boys division if it hadn’t been for Blake Hanley of West who won with a time of 28:37.0.

The UAA women’s basketball team has yet to cool down since it last tasted defeat on Dec. 2, 2023. With wins over Great Northwest Athletic Conference foes Central Washington and Northwest Nazarene this past week, the Seawolves are now on a nine-game winning streak. After reaching double figures in scoring in both games including a double-double by leading the team with 18 points and a dozen rebounds in Thursday’s win over the Wildcats, junior forward/center Tori Hollingshead earned GNAC Player of the Week honors for the first time in her career.

“We made some silly mistakes in the first half that put us in a negative position with that early second-half deficit, but our ladies did an excellent job of following our game plan, and it paid off big-time,” UAA head coach Ryan McCarthy said in a statement. “Senya (Rabouin) was terrific in controlling the flow of our offense and causing havoc in the defensive end, and Tori continued to play at the high level she’s displayed lately. We’re excited to get home with two huge road wins and hope we have some great crowds this week at the Alaska Airlines Center.”

The UAA men’s basketball team bounced back from having its four-game winning streak snapped in a 92-83 loss to Western Washington on the road last Thursday with a resounding 71-49 win over Simon Fraser on Saturday. The Seawolves were led to victory by senior guard Tyson Gilbert who recorded his first career double-double by leading the team with 21 points and 10 rebounds. They also got 18 points from junior point guard Dillon Barrientos and a career-high 10 points from sophomore guard Hasaan Herrington.

“Tonight we got back to our defensive identity, and it resulted in another solid team win,” UAA head coach Rusty Osborne said in a statement. “It obviously helped to get off to that great start, but then we did a nice job of controlling the pace of play and not letting up when we established our big lead in the second half. A lot of guys stepped up tonight with Dathan (Satchell) out sick, especially Hasaan, and it was good to get Caleb Larsen (4 pts) back into our lineup for some big minutes.”

The UAA gymnastics team held its only home meets of the 2024 season this past weekend and while they fell in both to visiting UC Davis, there were several standout performances. On Sunday, senior Silje Hildebrand thrived in her final competition at the Alaska Airlines Center by tying her career best on vault with a 9.675 and posted the same score on the floor exercise. Sophomore Montana Fairbairn’s mark of 9.8 on the floor exercise also set a career-high and was a team-high score for the day. She also tied a career high on balance beam with a 9.775 and scored 9.7 on vault, finishing with a 38.350 in the all-around.

“I’m really proud of our team for making the individual adjustments and bouncing back so strong from Friday’s performance,” UAA head coach Marie-Sophie Boggasch said in a statement. “It will be exciting to get back in the gym next week and start working on the necessary improvements for the rest of the season.”

The UAA men’s hockey team split its weekend road series with No. 9 ranked Providence College, getting shut out 2-0 on Friday and returning the favor and doubling the score with a 4-0 shutout victory on Saturday. The Seawolves had four players record a goal in their win over the Friars on Saturday including junior forward Maximilion Helgeson of Anchorage who found the back of the net at 17:05 in the second period to extend the team’s lead to 3-0. It came unassisted and marked his 10th goal of the season which also leads the team. Sophomore goalie Jared Whale recorded 26 saves to earn his second career shutout. It also marked the first time Providence was held scoreless this season.

“I really liked our approach tonight,” UAA head coach Matt Shasby said in a statement. “Everyone came with the energy it takes to win against an opponent of this quality. Happy with the overall performance.”

The Anchorage Wolverines extended their winning streak by continuing their domination of instate rival Fairbanks with a two-game series sweep for the second weekend in a row in their first home games since early December. The Wolverines won both games by four goals and were led in scoring over the two games by forwards Fyodor Nikolayenya and Taisetsu Ushio, who each scored a pair of goals.

“It always seems to be a little bit more intense when we play Fairbanks,” Wolverines coach Nick Walters said. “Even when I played youth hockey, it was always when you go up to Fairbanks or come down to Anchorage, there’s always that little bit of rivalry.”

Alaska stars shining Outside

Anchorage’s Alissa Pili tied her career and season-high scoring total with 37 as she led the No. 20 ranked University of Utah women’s basketball team to a dominating 78-58 victory over her former school, University of Southern California this past Friday. The Trojans were ranked No. 6 in the nation and are led by freshman sensation JuJu Watkins. That made for a highly anticipated matchup with Pili, the reigning Pac-12 Player of the Year. Pili put any debate and all doubts to bed about who is still the cream of the crop by going 13-of-16 shooting from the field that included knocking down 5-of-6 from 3-point range. The former Dimond multi-sport star also went 6-of-8 on free throws and tied for the second-most rebounds on the team with six.

Kenai’s Allie Ostrander finished in fourth place at the USATF Cross Country Championships in Richmond, Virginia this past Saturday. The former Kenai Central star’s mark of 33:52.5 not only earned her $1,000 in prize money but it also qualified her for the World Championships in Serbia that will take place in March.

Anchorage’s Isaiah Moses led the University of California Riverside men’s basketball team to an 82-63 win over California State University Northridge this past Saturday with a season-high 30 points. The former Dimond High standout and Alaska Gatorade Player of the Year was a sharp shooter from behind the arc, knocking down 8-of-11 and nearly had his first double-double of the season by tying for the team lead in assists with eight.

Anchorage’s Mia ‘Uhila recorded her second-highest point total of the season in the Portland State University women’s basketball team’s 73-65 loss to Northern Arizona this past Thursday. The former Bartlett star and Gatorade Player of the Year led the Vikings with 19 points and 10 rebounds for her first double-double of the season.

Anchorage’s Rosie Brennan held onto her No. 3 ranking in the World Cup overall standings after coming in 10th in a 20-kilometer classic race this past Saturday in Oberhof, Germany with a finish of 51 minutes, 47.9 seconds. She also had the fourth-fastest qualifying time in the classic sprint race on Friday. On the men’s side, her APU nordic ski teammates Gus Schumacher and Scott Patterson teamed up with Ben Ogden and Zak Ketterson to finish 13th out of a field of 15 in the 4×7.5-kilometer relay race.

Anchorage’s Luke Jager dominated at the Eastern Cup in Lake Placid, New York with first-place finishes in the classic sprint race on Saturday and the 10K mass-start on Sunday with a time of 24:32.3. Fellow APU skier Michael Earnhart came in second behind him in both races. APU nordic ski teammate Renae Anderson won the women’s sprint race by five seconds and placed ninth in the 10K race.

Three biathletes from Alaska took part in the Youth Olympic Games overseas in Gangwon, South Korea this past week. Anchorage youngsters Elias Soule, John Lohuis and Noa Kam-Magruder make up the entirety of Team USA’s boys biathlon team. Unfortunately, struggles in the shooting portion of the 12.5-kilometer individual race on Friday prevented them from contending for a podium finish. Soule came in 31st after missing 5-of-20 shots, Lohuis came in 35th after missing 6-of-20 shots, and Kam-Magruder came in 48th after missing 7-of-20 shots.
