The Bellingham Slam showed their defensive prowess when they hosted the Lone Star Strikers from Houston Texas Sunday, May 19th at Whatcom Pavilion. Building a lead early in the first period, Bellingham blocked shots, intercepted passes and rebounded nearly every Strikers' scoring attempt. The visiting from Texas would not concede easily, matching the point total for the second quarter with the Slam at 24-points each. However Bellingham would maintain a 14-point halftime lead. This proved to be too much for the Strikers to overcome as the Slam lead comfortably throughout the second half to another International Basketball League win. Final score: 106-86.
