The UAA women’s basketball team hit the century mark and then some Sunday night at the Alaska Airlines Center.

The Seawolves poured in 110 points – the third most in program history against a Division II opponent – in a 110-82 bruising of San Francisco State.

It was the eighth-most points against again teams from any level.

Safiiyyah Yasin racked up 25 points and Tennae Voliva posted 20 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Seawolves, the nation’s 16th ranked team in the Diviiosn II rankings.

Voliva, a 6-foot junior forward from East High, hit a layup with just less than four minutes remaining to put UAA over the 100-point mark, 101-78.

The victory came on the second day of the Division II West Coast Classic. On Saturday, UAA pummeled Chaminade 93-45. Sunday’s outburst gave the Seawolves 203 points for the weekend.

In the 1995-96 season, the Seawolves scored 133 points against LSU-Shreveport of the NAIA, the most in school history. In the 1991-92 season, they scored 122 against Dixie State, the most against a fellow Division II team.

Nicole Pinckney added 11 points, Jahnna Hadjukovich had 10, Yazmeen Goo had nine and Kedranea Addison and Lauren Johnson each had eight to help UAA move to 3-0 on the season.

San Francisco State (0-2) suited up eight players and finished with five after three players fouled out. One fouled out with six minutes left and the other two picked up their fifth fouls in the final 86 seconds.

Muirae Gomez came off the bench to pump in 21 points on 10-of-13 shooting for the Gators (0-2).

The Seawolves led 54-33 at the half and 81-60 after three quarters.

San Francisco State owned a 38-32 advantage on the boards – including 14 offensive rebounds -- but UAA more than compensated for that with 20 steals, including four apiece from Goo and Yasin.

Yasin turned in a complete game, shooting 8 of 15 from the field (3 of 6 from 3-point range) and 6 of 9 from the foul line while piling up seven rebounds and five assists.

Earlier on Sunday, the UAF men and women both picked up victories.

The women cruised past Chaminade 92-47, and the men used a half-court buzzer shot from Koby Huerta to beat Hawaii Pacific 75-73.

The UAA men played Chaminade in Sunday’s final game.
