Rufful leads Dartmouth past Alaska-Anchorage 64-52

David Rufful had 19 points, including three 3-pointers, and

seven rebounds to lead Dartmouth to a 64-52 victory Friday over

Alaska-Anchorage in a Great Alaska Shootout consolation game.

Jvonte Brooks added 13 points and 10 rebounds, and Jabari

Trotter scored 12 as the Big Green (2-3) broke open a close game

after halftime.

Travis Thompson had 11 points and Phillip Hearn scored 10 for

the Seawolves (0-2).

The game was tied 25-25 at halftime, and Alaska-Anchorage was

within two points, 32-30, after Taylor Rohde made one of two free

throws with 15:57 to play. But Dartmouth responded with a 20-5 run

over the next 10 minutes to put the game away.

Dartmouth’s opponent Saturday will be the winner of the Central

Michigan-UC Irvine game later Friday, and Alaska-Anchorage will

play the loser of that game.
