  • Cascade Christian put together a big second quarter and ran away from Mazama in the opening round of the Southern Oregon Subaru Christmas Classic Thursday at Cascade Christian High.
    The victory sets up a semifinal meeting in the Unlimited Division at 7 tonight between the Challengers (4-1) and Class 3A defending state champion Dayton (5-3). The Pirates defeated Phoenix, 62-59, in overtime.
    The CC-Dayton matchup is of particular interest to the nine Challengers who played football. Dayton beat Cascade Christian in the state title game 31/2 weeks ago, 34-28.
    "It's a different sport, but they remember," said Cascade Christian coach Brian Morse of his players. "They're excited to play them."
    Against Mazama, the Challengers won the second quarter, 20-4, opening a 37-18 halftime lead.
    Cody Coggins scored eight of his game-high 18 points in the period, making two of his four 3-pointers.
    "We got our fastbreak going," said Morse. "In the first quarter, they were getting a lot of transitional baskets. We corrected our defense a little bit and took that away from them. Offensively, we got a lot of penetration and kick-outs. That kind of busted it open."
    Alex Miller added 12 points, seven rebounds and five assists, and David Sellers had 10 points, five rebounds and five steals. Stephen Joffer contributed seven points, four rebounds, five assists and two steals.
