He might be the oldest player on his team, but Brad Oleson of North Pole looked a lot like his younger self in UCAM Murcia’s 82-71 win over Retabet in Spain’s top division.

The 34-year-old played a team-high 33 minutes, pumped in 19 points and earned the game’s highest player ranking.

He knocked down 4-of-5 3-pointers and all five free throws. The 6-foot-3 guard added three rebounds, three assists and two steals.

His player ranking of 25 made him one of only two players in the 20s.

Oleson, of North Pole High fame, is the team’s second-leading scorer at 10.1 points in eight league games. He leads the team with 19 threes and a .452 shooting percentage from downtown.

This is the Alaskan’s 14th professional season – the 13th in Spain.
