Fraser Valley wins again

Sam Freeman's steal and subsequent lay-in with 1:13 remaining in the game broke a tie and started a game-deciding 6-1 run to lift Barnaby Craddock's Cascades to a narrow 71-69 victory over Idaho State Bengals last night.  Freeman's dramatics broke the tenth and final tie of the game - he added another offensive rebound a lay-in later as Fraser Valley made it two in a row against NCAA Division 1 competition this month agfter a victory earlier over San Diego.  Cascades Joel Friesen had 15 of his game-high 23 points (including 4-8 shooting from downtown) in the second half while Freeman added 16 points and guard Sheldon Bjorgaard has 10 points, 8 assists (only 2 turnovers) and 4 rebounds.  The game was played using FIBA rules and it is unfortunate that the attached game commentary seems to focus on how the rules got in the way instead of crediting Fraser Valley.  The game vs. Fraser Valley is the only match vs. CIS competition for the Bengals although they will meet a pair of CCAA teams in the next couple of days.
