  • EAGLE POINT — Eagle Point freshman Adrienne Wood dissected the Grants Pass defense in the final seconds, scoring on a putback of her own miss to give the Eagles a wild, 51-49 nonconference girls basketball win Friday.
    Wood, who is a 5-foot-4 point guard, looked for two teammates on the final play before driving to the basket. She missed a layup but got the rebound and sank the winner with 1.2 seconds remaining.
    The victory raised Eagle Point's record to 13-3 — one win more than in the previous four seasons combined.
    Sophomore forward Sydney May scored 17 points and Wood 15 for the Eagles.
    Wood wasn't the first option on the final play. She looked first to May, then to senior post Casie Johnson.
    Grants Pass defenders had taken both away.
    "She wasn't looking for the last shot," said Eagles second-year coach Paul Bell. "She was trying to be a true point guard and give it to our playmakers. But when it wasn't there, she wasn't afraid to finish it."
    "It was a very mature play," he said.
    Eagle Point trailed by eight at halftime and, after tying it in the fourth, fell behind again by five points with three minutes to play.
    "The girls just kept battling back," said Bell.
    Johnson added 11 points for Eagle Point, which struggled at the free-throw line down the stretch.
    Senior post Kayla Bice scored 13 points and had four rebounds and three assists for the Cavers. Emily Henderson had 12 points, 10 boards and three steals.
    Grants Pass made only 20 of 57 shots and missed 19 shots from inside the key.
    GRANTS PASS (49) — Bice 13, Henderson 12, Jordan 10, Clark 6, Phillips 4, Miller 2, Davidson 2. Totals: 20 9-13 49.
    EAGLE POINT (51) — May 17, Wood 15, Johnson 11, Bradshaw 6, Cooper 2, Pena 0, Cowden 0, Hoefft 0, Neilson 0. Totals: 20 7-13 51.
