The Cascades had their way for the first 26 minutes of play, taking UBC out of the offense to lead 55-44 with 4 minutes left in the third quarter. But then Murphy and 6'4" Blaine Labranche (15 points, most in the second half) sparked the T-Birds culminated by Murphy's long three pointer with 4 minutes left to give UBC a 71-59 lead . 6'3" Chris Dyck kept the Birds in the game early and had a team-high 20 points. The teams meet again tomorrow night in Vancouver.
