Slam Take Flight in Season Opener

The Bellingham Slam open the 2014 International Basketball League season with a home win over the Seattle Flight. Fresh faces on Bellingham's roster meant team chemistry was a key concern for first-year, and former Slam player, Tyler Amaya. He would get a chance to test the rookies as his veteran lineup created a big lead early and did not let the Flight within 10-points the entire game. Guard Jacob Stevenson lead all scorers with 23 points while six of his teammates contributed double digit points in the effort. The Slam bench saw plenty of floor time along with their newest addition, former Nippon Tornadoes guard Kosei Ban. Ban quickly became a fan favorite in his debut, scoring eight points in his seven minutes on the court. Final score: 142-93. Click here to view photos from the game.
