Lucky streak helped Miami Heat, too--Miami Herald
Improving Cole

The further expansion of Norris Cole’s game has contributed to the bench’s production. Cole was 6 of 8 from three-point range during the back-to-back.

“He’s been working on that all year,” Spoelstra said of Cole’s three-point shooting. “We still want him to be an aggressive, attacking player.”

Spoelstra said the Heat has “slowly” helped Cole develop a reliable corner three-pointer.

“It’s steady improvement,” Spoelstra said. “It’s not drastic but steady.”

2013 CBI Tournament: Semifinal Recaps--Mid-Major Madness
Final - 3.27.2013 1 2 Total
Santa Clara Broncos 34 47 81
Wright St. Raiders 36 33 69

In Dayton, Wright State took a two point lead into the half, thanks to a buzzer-beating dunk by A.J. Pacher. The Raiders couldn't hang on to the momentum though, as Kevin Foster scored 21 second half points to lead Santa Clara to victory. The "Other" Broncos came out swinging in that second half, going on a 19-4 run, not allowing Wright State to cut it closer than seven points at any point in the final period.

Despite shooting better overall in the game (54.2% compared to the Broncos 48.4%), Wright State did not have near as many attempts as Santa Clara. The Broncos out-rebounded the Raiders 33-25 and forced 15 turnovers, while only committing six themselves.

Foster followed up his 34-point masterpiece against Purdue with yet another fantastic performance. His final tally was 33 points, four steals and three assists. Evan Roguemore added 16 points, five assists and two rebounds, while no other Bronco contributed more than nine points.

On the other side, Pacher finished his night with 17 points, eight rebounds and two assists, while Jerran Young and Miles Dixon scored 13 and ten points respectively.

George Mason and Santa Clara will now face off in a best-of-three championship series beginning April 1. Can the Patriots win the CBI trophy before they head to the Atlantic 10? Or will Kevin Foster and company reign supreme and take the trophy to the West Coast?
