  • ALBANY — Ben Orndoff had a strong all-around game and eighth-ranked South Medford held off a late rally by West Albany for a 62-55 nonconference boys basketball win Tuesday.
    The Panthers shot 54 percent (13 of 24) in the first half and held West Albany to 28 percent (8 of 29) as they took a 36-22 lead at the break.
    They increased the advantage to 17 entering the fourth quarter, but the Bulldogs didn't roll over.
    "We played awfully well in the first half and the third quarter wasn't bad," said South Medford coach Dennis Murphy. "Then in the fourth we played not to lose. We haven't been in that situation and we didn't handle it very well. We have to figure something out."
    West Albany got as close as five points, but the Panthers' free-throw shooting kept the host at bay. Brandon Robertson made all six of his foul shots in the fourth and Brayden Massey was 3-for-4. South Medford made only one field goal in the period.
    Orndoff had 15 points and was 5 of 8 from the field and 5 of 5 at the line. He also had five rebounds, four steals and two assists.
    Massey scored 12, and Hunter Bradford contributed nine rebounds and three blocks.
    West Albany's Nate Sherwood, who had been averaging 28 points and 12 rebounds, was held to only two field goals and 13 points.
