Andre Murray
In front of an enthusiastic home crowd the Vancouver Volcanoes pulled out a semi-final playoff victory after a hard-fought comeback by the Portland Chinooks. The Volcanoes won 156-148 as IBL leading scorer Andre Murray (6'2''-G-87, college: Portland St.) poured in 43 points.

"Were going to enjoy this one, we had some execution issues late in the fourth quarter, but I'm happy the way the guys played. We almost didn't hold the Chinooks off, Kevin Ford (6'9''-F/C-86, college: ORU) is really good, and when he gets going like that they are really hard to guard. We missed some defensive assignments, but luckily our offensive was clicking and carried us down the fourth. We are both really deep teams," Head Coach Joe Navarro commented.

Navarro was announced as 2014 IBL Coach of the Year, Andre Murray (6'2''-G-87, college: Portland St.) as the 2014 IBL MVP and Adam Herman (6'6''-F, college: Concordia, OR) . Murray also picked up a nod for 2014 IBL All-Star on the First Team, Calvin Hampton (6'10''-F/C-86, college: Oregon St.) and Brian Morris (6'9''-F-87, college: Humboldt St.) on the All-Star Second Team and, veteran Cory Largent (6'7''-G/F-80, college: W.Carolina) to the Third Team of All-Stars.

Portland was led in scoring by Kevin Ford with 41 points, while Antone Jarrell had 38.

"They are all great, but the one we all want is tomorrow. If we come out and win tomorrow, we will enjoy those a lot more than just having the individual awards. It doesn't matter who it is tomorrow that we face, it is about us right now. I will watch the Slam versus Flight game to scout it, but really going to work on our Xs and Os."

"With one championship to their credit, the Volcanoes are ready for another title game. It would mean everything to win the title. Our guys who were on the team that won in 2011 understand that and the new guys that haven't won it are starting to understand how serious it is," Navarro shared.

The Volcanoes are in the IBL Championship game Sunday 5pm at Clark College, against the Bellingham Slam in a rematch of the 2013 title game, which the Slam won 117-114.

Slam finishes Seattle Pro-Am regular season with first-ever OT win - 10 months ago
The Bellingham Slam received a late game-tying put-back from center Austin Bragg (6'9''-F/C-91, college: W.Washington), then pulled away in overtime as they defeated Team Worldwide in a Seattle Pro-Am thriller, 110-103, at Royal Brougham Pavilion on Saturday. Remarkably, it was the first time the Slam had posted an overtime victory in team history, having gone 0-for-5 in previous games which required extra time. Thanks to hot outside shooting from forward Jordan Hamilton (6'7''-F-90, coll...   [read more]

Ex-Vikings power Bellingham Slam rout of Kitsap - 11 months ago
The Bellingham Slam received contributions from a number of former Western Washington University players as they routed the Kitsap Admirals, 110-89, in Seattle Pro-Am action at Royal Brougham Pavilion on Saturday. Led by guard Taylor Stafford (6'1''-G-94, college: W.Washington) who tallied a game-high 38 points, seven ex-Vikings scored the Slam and accounted for over two-thirds of Bellingham's total offensive production. Stafford dazzled the crowd with perhaps the best shooting performanc...   [read more]
