Geraldton Bucs rookie Colter Lasher of Anchorage played the closest thing to a perfect game for his pro team down under.

The 6-foot-7 forward flirted with a triple-double and made almost all of his field goals in a 110-78 victory over the South West Slammers to help his first-place team inch closer to a regular-season title in Australia’s State Basketball League.

Lasher, of Dimond High fame, scored 16 points on 8-of-11 shooting.

He added nine rebounds, a season-high eight assists and three steals to highlight a player rank of 28, his highest single-game ranking in three months.

Geraldton improved to 20-3 on the season.

The former Houston Baptist University star leads his team with 21.4-point and 8.2-rebound averages.
