The favoured CIS squad opened the game on an 11-0 run and never looked back, out-rebounding their PACWest college foe 51-37 en route to the victory.

Kyle Grewal and Jasper Moedt – both returning to the Cascades lineup this fall after sitting out with torn ACLs last season – led the way in the scoring column. Grewal scored a game-high 17 points, while Moedt chipped in with 14.

First-year guard Kevin Ford led the Bearcats with 16 points.

The Cascades hosted Quest University on Thursday evening, but that result was unavailable at press time. They continue the preseason on Oct. 13, when they host the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology at Sardis Secondary (8 p.m. start).

Up next for the CBC men’s hoopsters is a home-court date with Northwest Indian College on Oct. 13 at 7 p.m.
