Bandits don't run enough, losing 1st place on the home court while the Stingers improve to 9-1

Jordan Baker scored 20 points and added 11 assists to help the Edmonton Stingers beat the Fraser Valley Bandits 87-79 in CEBL action on Sunday.

Marlon Johnson added 18 points for Edmonton, who had two-time MVP Xavier Moon, who played just under 30 minutes and scored 12 points. Shaquille Keith, Kenny Manigault and Brandon Gilbeck all had 15 points ahead of Fraser Valley.

The Bandits reduced a Stingers lead in the middle of the third quarter from 21 to just three points at 80-77, already deep into the Elam end.

But Edmonton held on to victory when Johnson converted two free throws to hit the 87-point target.

Calm. Cool. Collected. Coupling.
