Bailey, Holmes help North deny Crater

January 19, 2013

North Medford was fueled by effective guard play from Oshea Bailey and Tristen Holmes en route to a 56-48 victory over visiting Crater in Southern Oregon Hybrid boys basketball Friday.

The senior Bailey scored 19 points while Holmes, a sophomore, put up 18 points to go with five rebounds and three assists.

"We had a good night from our guards and we need that," said North Medford coach Scott Plankenhorn. "Oshea played aggressive and was looking to score and that made him hard to guard."

The Black Tornado (11-4, 3-2 SOH) jumped out to a 7-0 lead and stayed ahead most of the game.

North held a 41-31 advantage to begin the fourth quarter. Crater cut the margin to five points late in the period but the Black Tornado made 8 of 10 free throws down the stretch to preserve the lead.

"They pressed us late and we handled their pressure well," said Plankenhorn. "We did a good job of sharing the ball and were patient offensively."

Crater (9-7, 2-3) was paced by senior wing Cody Dismukes with 17 points and Connor Lane, a 6-foot-7 junior center, added 12.

The taller Comets outrebounded North, 34-28.

"Our defense was really solid," said Plankenhorn. "We held them to 40 percent shooting and forced 19 turnovers."

After starting the conference season 1-2, including a 60-58 loss to Crater, the Black Tornado has won two straight SOH contests.

"We have a bunch of guys buying into what we need them to do," said Plankenhorn. "Offensively we're still searching for what works best for us."
