Oleson’s 17 sparks Game 2 win (Basketball)
May 30, 2010
Don’t make Brad Oleson angry.
Just ask Real Madrid.
Traded last summer from Real Madrid to Caja Laboral, Oleson has come back to bite his former team in the Spanish League playoffs.
The North Pole native pumped in a season-high 17 points in a season-high 34 minutes in an 85-80 overtime victory in Game 2 of the best-of-5 semifinal series. It was also the second straight start for the 6-foot-3 guard.
Oleson, of UAF fame, shot the ball at a 5-of-9 clip, including 3 for 5 from downtown.
Despite the two teams tying for second place in the Spanish League regular-season standings, Caja Laboral has defeated Real Madrid in all three meetings this season.
Oleson is averaging 11 points on 57 percent shooting from the floor against his former team.
