ASHLAND — The Corban men's basketball couldn't keep up the 3-point pace it set early Saturday night. Southern Oregon University did.

The result was SOU's 84-64 Cascade Conference win at Bob Riehm Arena, sparked by 14 makes out of 31 tries from downtown. Eric Thompson hit four of them on his way to 23 points and eight rebounds, Kyle Tedder hit three for 13 points, and Jeff Bush handed out 11 assists with six points and no turnovers.

The second-ranked Raiders (15-3, 4-2 CCC) led 60-56 until Justin Martin's triple with 10 minutes, 36 seconds left started a 9-0 run that included a Dex Daum 3-pointer and ended with Bush's fastbreak layup.

Martin, a Crater High product, went 3-for-4 from outside against Corban's zone defense in a season-high 17 minutes off the bench. His 3-point percentage stands at 69.2 (18-for-26).

"We were very happy with how our bench played tonight," SOU coach Brian McDermott said.

CORBAN 82, SOU 79 — At Ashland, Corban took advantage of Southern Oregon's thin front line on its way to a Cascade Conference win.

The Raiders (14-4, 3-3) had a chance to tie with a 3-pointer on the last possession, but Ashley Claussen's deep attempt from straightaway rimmed off. Claussen finished with 18 points, eight assists and four rebounds. Bree Park, making her first start as a Raider, canned four 3-pointers and scored a season-high 20 points.
