Sam Freeman, a 6-foot-3 guard from Coquitlam, B.C., has signed on to play for the Bellingham Slam in the upcoming International Basketball League season.
Freeman, who played at the University of the Fraser Valley for the past five years, averaged 21.2 points per game in the Canada West Conference in his final season. He also owns the record for most points in a game for Fraser Valley after his 41-point performance against the University of Calgary.
The Slam is coming off back-to-back IBL championships, and is one of the top offensive teams in the league. Bellingham averaged 125 points per game last season, and Freeman's addition should bolster the rosters outside shooting.
The Slam opens its season against the Seattle Flight at 7 p.m. April 25 at Whatcom Community College's Whatcom Pavilion.
