North Pole’s Brad Oleson is shooting the ball as well from 3-point range as he has over his 11 seasons in the Spanish League.

The veteran guard with UCAM Murcia has made 57 percent of his 3s in the last four games, thanks to a 12-for-21 clip.

Oleson, of North Pole High fame, has averaged 10.5 points over that stretch and recently bagged a season-high 15 points in back-to-back games.

It’s a terrific turnaround from the start of the season when he was shooting 21 percent (3-for-14) after the first six games.

The former UAF All-American raised his season percentage to .429, which is his highest since 2017.

He has a .415 career 3-point percentage with 452 makes in 306 ACB games.

Oleson, 35, is much older than most of the defenders trying to stop him.
