Poole's double-double helps Slam to win

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDMay 23, 2014 

The Bellingham Slam received a monster double-double from center Blake Poole as they rolled to a 106-86 win over the Portland Chinooks in an International Basketball League game at Eastmoreland Court on Friday.

Poole put up 33 points and 20 rebounds, season bests in both categories.

The Slam's defense went to work early, limited Portland to just 16 first quarter points and eventually led 46-39 at halftime.

But it wasn't until the start of the fourth quarter when the Slam started to pull away, thanks to a 12-2 run buoyed by 7 points from Poole, and led 87-68.
