UAF forward Caitlin Pusich handles the ball during Monday night’s loss to Montana state University-Billings. Pusich had eight points in Thursday night’s loss to Seattle Pacific at the Alaska Airlines Gymnasium. 

Confidence and an early lead could not counter exhaustion for the University of Alaska Fairbanks women’s basketball team Thursday night in a game that came down to the final 66 seconds.

Trailing by a point with just over a minute to play, Seattle Pacific’s Hunter Beirne hit a three-pointer and Natalie Hoff added another from behind the arc with 32 seconds to go as the Falcons escaped the Alaska Airlines Gymnasium with a 65-60 win.
