Cascades pick up preseason win over Blues

The University of the Fraser Valley women’s basketball team opened a huge halftime lead en route to an exhibition victory over the Capilano Blues on Saturday at the Envision Athletic Centre.

The Cascades shot a scorching 54.1 per cent from the field over the first two quarters, and led their PACWEST opponent 31-6 at the break. The hosts eased off the gas considerably in the second half, finishing off a 54-40 victory.
