Hawks looking to leave Alaska with Binghamton win

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 05:35:00 EST

Following Tuesday's loss to Alaska Anchorage in the Great Alaska Shootout, University of Maryland Eastern Shore head coach Fred Batchelor was disappointed not so much in the outcome of the 69-59 loss, but rather what he saw as a team that outworked his.Despite a strong performance and overall effort by freshman Bairesha Gill-Miles, Batchelor saw a team that he didn't think wanted the win as bad as the Seawolves they matched up against. It was telling the postgame interview that Batchelor said he thought Gill-Miles seemed at times to be battling UAA alone."We just need to play a little bit better," Batchelor said. "The people here have been really kind and the experience has been really great for us. It's just too bad we weren't able to come away with a win."The Shore's last chance to pick up that first victory on this 13-day road trip is on Thursday afternoon against Binghamton University (3-2), which dropped a 60-55 decision to Tulsa in the opening round.

Entering Tuesday night's opening round of the Great Alaskan Shootout, University of Maryland Eastern Shore head coach Fred Batchelor knew he needed several things from his team to come away with a victory against host Alaska-Anchorage.The Hawks needed to withstand the pressure, be efficient on offense, defend the Seawolves' bigs and get some offensive contributions from different sources.The first half was a back-and-forth battle that saw the Hawks leading by as many as seven points and hold a 31-30 edge at the break. But Alaska-Anchorage (6-0) shot 61.5 percent from the field in the third quarter, building and 11-point lead and then played suffocating defense in the fourth quarter to come away with a 69-59 win and a spot in Thursday's final against Tulsa.
