The Vancouver Volcanoes are off to a hot start in thier third season in The Basketball League with three wins in their first four games.

The Volcanoes improved to 3-0 by beating The Salem Capitals 132-121 on Friday in their home opener at Clark College. Salem got revenge on Sunday, winning 116-113.

Vancouver’s hot start shows renewed momentum for a team that went 8-15 last season.

After a 118-101 win over the expansion Emerald City Jaguars in the season opener, Vancouver scored a big win in their second game on March 7. The Volcanoes won 101-96 against the Seattle SuperHawks, which went 22-4 last season and reached the TBL regional finals. Thomas Miles led the way with 22 points in his season debut.

Vancouver showed resilience in their home opener, rallying from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter. Seven players scored in double figures, led by 28 points from Portland State alum Markus Golder.

Xavier Dupree had a double-double with 12 points and 11 points while Rashaun Coleman added 24 points, six rebounds, and five assists.

Vancouver nearly staged another big comeback on Sunday, overcoming a 17-point deficit in the third quarter to take the lead 100-96 midway through the fourth quarter.

Despite the loss, five players scored double figures led by 25 points from Miles.

In a schedule change, Vancouver will play their remaining home games at Hudson’s Bay High School. That starts on Sunday against the expansion Great Falls Electric at 3 p.m.

Tickets are 10 dollars for adults and five dollars for seniors and children.
