OPSU Wins Against Cal State-Monterey Bay; Earns Second Place Trophy

—By Laura Nelson on 11/18/2012 Fairbanks, Alaska—The OPSU men's basketball team finally took the win they had been looking for in the Alaska Invitational tournament in Fairbanks on Saturday night as they faced the Cal State-Monterey Bay Otters in their third and final game.

The Aggies cruised to an easy 92-77 win and played the way head coach Jerry Olson had been expecting all weekend. He said, "We finally ran our fast break after jogging the first two games in the tournament. I was proud of the fact we bounced back after the Friday night loss."

For the game, Bill Lee had a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Damar Hill led the Aggie scoring with 18 while Brandon Caruthers added 16 and T. J. Farrell Michael Patterson had 11 each.

The Alaska Nanooks won the tournament, winning all three of their games. The other three teams, OPSU, Colorado Christian, and Cal State each went 1-2, and OPSU won the second place trophy as determined by statistics. In addition, Aggie Bill Lee was named to the All-Tournament Team.

Both Aggie teams play Cameron University in Lawton, Okla. on Nov. 20. The women's tip-off is set for 6 p.m. and the men go at 8 p.m. Fans can watch live or follow live stats by logging onto www.cameronaggies.com/.
