The Bellingham Slam wasted no time in their International Basketball League season opener, dominating the visiting Seattle Flight 142-93, Friday at Whatcom Pavilion on the campus of Whatcom Community College.

The Slam (1-0)  shot a scorching 61 percent from the field and had seven double-digit scorers. Jacob Stevenson lead the way with 23 points, along with eight rebounds. New addition Sam Freeman scored 22 points off the bench and Mo Anderson chipped-in 17 points and a team-high eight assists.

Bellingham does not get to rest long as they travel to face the Vancouver Volcanoes on Saturday in Vancouver. It’s the first meeting between the teams since the 2013 IBL Finals, which Bellingham won for the second consecutive year.
