NWSB Insider Dave B brings us another Northwest Athlete Profile of a hometown hero in Victoria. Eli Pasquale was a leader and a champion for Canada and the Univerisity of Victoria Vikings. At the height of just 6’1” tall, Eli Pasquale is the University of Victoria’s All-Time leading scorer; he was inducted to the Canadian Basketball Hall of Fame in 2003 and to the BC Sports Hall of Fame in 2004.
NWSB managing editor Q brings us his Love Em & Hate Em recap from Friday night’s game between the Portland Trail Blazers vs. Chicago Bulls. A nice win for their new interim coach Kaleb Canales. Nicolas Batum filled up the stat sheet last night. He poured in 15 points while grabbing nine boards. Jamal Crawford continued to struggle.
Could we see Jamal Crawford land in Chicago via NBA free agency? Picture Derrick Rose driving to the hoop and actually having an option to kick out to, who can quickly create his own shot. Enter Jamal Crawford. Both LaMarcus Aldridge and Lebron James have been working hard to woo the 6’6 guard to either RIP City or South Beach too.
