Cascades 6’7″ third-year forward Jasper Moedt put the finishing touches on a fine evening with six straight points in the late stages of the game and finished with 21 points and 9 rebounds.

Similar to last-night, game-two had all the ingredients of a quality playoff series with the first quarter finishing 16-14 in favor UFV.

Dominyc Coward wrapped-up an 11-point second-quarter with a layup with three-seconds remaining to send Pronghorns ahead 36-34 at the end of the first-half.
