As he gets older, Brad Oleson of North Pole has to pick his spots.

He picked a great time to get hot over the weekend as No. 2 Barcelona escaped No. 14 Blusens Monbus 69-62 in Spain’s famed ACB.

The 32-year-old starting guard scored 9 points on 3-of-4 shooting from 3-point range.

Oleson, of North Pole High fame, is averaging 5.4 points in 16 games this season, his 12th as a professional.

The 6-foot-3 sharpshooter has made 17-of-35 3s for a team-best .486 percentage.
