  • LAKE OSWEGO — A day after Tualatin ran circles around North Medford, the Black Tornado was able to return to its preferred style of play and ended up with the preferred result, too.
    Junior guard Julian Gray scored 16 points to lead four North Medford players in double figures as the Tornado used a fast start to take control in a 72-54 victory over Glencoe at the Lakeside Holiday Classic Saturday at Lakeridge High.
    Bailey Oshea and Tristen Holmes scored 12 points apiece and Christian Reyes added 10 points for North Medford (4-1), which jumped out to a 17-5 lead five minutes into the game.
    "It was a really solid run to get started," North Medford coach Scott Plankenhorn said. "I liked the way we were playing — sharing the ball and getting layups."
    The win improves North Medford to 1-1 in the round-robin tournament a day after the Tornado was ambushed by a run-and-gun Tualatin team, 105-75. North faces Lakeridge at 1 p.m. today.
    Glencoe (1-6), which has lost four in a row, scored six straight points to end the first quarter, then matched the Tornado in the second to head into halftime down by six, 31-25. But North scored the first six points of the third to push its lead back to double digits and wasn't threatened again.
    Shayne Rixie scored 16 points and Kyle Mincemoyer 14 to lead the Crimson Tide.
    Plankenhorn said Brandon DeBerry and Reyes made key contributions off the Tornado bench. DeBerry scored eight points and Reyes hit North's only two 3-pointers.
    Lakeridge should present a stiff challenge. The Pacers, who have won six straight, beat Tualatin 92-83 Saturday to improve to 6-2.
    "They're a little bit of an upgrade," said Plankenhorn. "They're a nice team with very nice guards and it'll be a chore for us."
