UAA's offensive woes evaporated Wednesday in a 106-70 men's basketball exhibition win over Cal Miramar.

The Seawolves placed six players in double figures, shot 58.1 percent from the field and shot 50 percent from 3-point land against in a big bounce-back performance against the team from San Diego at the Alaska Airlines Center. The Fighting Falcons beat UAA 61-59 on Tuesday.

Freshman guard Brennan Rymer led UAA with 18 points in 18 minutes off the bench and senior forward Jacob Lampkin tallied 16 points and eight rebounds after missing Tuesday's game for a minor disciplinary infraction.

Jack MacDonald (14 points), Drew Peterson (14), Maleke Haynes (13) and Josiah Wood (12) all reached double figures for the Seawolves.

Christian Mora's 22 points led Cal Miramar, a United States Collegiate Athletic Association team.

One Seawolf was back, but another was out — senior guard D.J. Ursery, UAA's second-leading scorer with 11 points per game — missed the game with a minor injury suffered Tuesday.

But UAA more than made up for his absence with 45 points off the bench.

The Fighting Falcons stuck with the Seawolves until midway through the first half, when UAA turned a 23-23 tie into a 43-31 halftime lead.

Back-to-back 3-pointers by Peterson and Ryan Curtis (6 points) extended UAA's lead to 76-53 with 10 minutes to go in the second half.

The game doesn't count toward UAA's stats or 6-4 record, but the Seawolves' scoring effort was well above its season average of 63.1 points per game.

UAA returns to Great Northwest Athletic Conference play Dec. 17 at Western Oregon.
