Cascades topped by Titans in exhibition action

The University of the Fraser Valley men's basketball team lost in competitive fashion to the NCAA's Detroit Mercy Titans.

The University of the Fraser Valley men’s basketball team hit the court Sunday for exhibition action against the University Detroit Mercy Titans.

The visiting NCAA squad took an 81-70 decision at Abbotsford’s Envision Athletic Centre, the third stop on their four-game tour of BC.

Two years removed from a March Madness appearance and still well-stocked with talent, the Titans had already posted wins over Quest University (119-74) and the University of British Columbia (86-78) heading into the Cascade clash. Against UFV, Patrick Onwenu led the visitors with 19 points. Jarod Williams added 14.

Third year forward Nate Brown led the Cascades with 23 points, including the first seven that UFV scored. He also pulled down nine rebounds.

Veteran centre Jasper Moedt had a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Manny Dulay scored 14 points, going four-of-seven from three-point land, and Dominique Brooks added nine points.

“That was a good first game, and I’m really looking forward to the season,” said Cascades coach Adam Friesen. “I saw a lot of good things, our guys competed hard and played tough, and those will be our building blocks moving forward. We are far deeper than we were last year, and we have significant weapons at all positions.”

The Cascades have significant time off before their next game, Oct. 3 at home versus the Kwantlen Eagles.
