In the consolation bracket of the Great Alaska Shootout, the Loyola Marymount Lions lost to the host Alaska-Anchorage Seawolves, 83-77, on Saturday night in Anchorage.

Star guard Anthony Ireland tried to carry the Lions to the win, scoring 26 points on 9-21 shooting, but it wasn't enough to take down the Division II Seawolves. Loyola Marymount played Alaska-Anchorage to a 48-48 tie in the second half, but couldn't overcome the six-point halftime deficit.

While the Lions shot a modest 40% from the field, they allowed Alaska-Anchorage a blistering 57%, including a 15-27 performance from the three-point line. The Seawolves, who assisted on 24 of their 28 made field goals, were led in scoring by Teancum Stafford, who put in 19 points in the upset win.

Ashley Hamilton added 16 points in the loss for LMU, including shooting 7-11 from the free throw line. The Lions fall to 3-3 on the season, and will host the Long Beach State 49ers on Nov. 29.
