North Pole native Brad Oleson rediscovered his shooting stroke today, helping the rookie guard reach double figures for the third time in these Spanish League playoffs.

This time it helped Caja Laboral stun reigning No. 1 world ranked FC Barcelona 70-69 in Game 2 of the Finals, putting the Alaskan one victory from hoisting the trophy.

Oleson, of UAF fame, bagged 10 points on the strength of a pair of 3-pointers. He started at shooting guard and logged 25 minutes of playing time.

The 6-foot-3 Alaskan scored four points in Game 1.

Caja Laboral can clinch the best-of-5 Spanish League championship series Tuesday night, the team’s second domestic title in three seasons.
