LAKE OSWEGO — Jared Knox has shown flashes of potential for the North Medford boys basketball team.

And the junior wing put it all together for the Black Tornado in the consolation finals of the Lakeridge Holiday Tournament.

North Medford used a productive game from Knox and tenacious defense to post a 49-39 victory against Camas, Wash., on Wednesday in the fourth-place game.

"(Knox) has been playing pretty good," said North Medford coach Scott Plankenhorn. "Today he broke loose and we needed it."

The 6-foot-2 Knox registered a career-high 17 points to go with four assists and four rebounds.

Knox was especially effective in the fourth quarter when he scored 10 points to help the Black Tornado pull away after being tied 31-all entering the period.

Knox was 6-of-7 from the field and made all three foul shots he attempted in the contest.

"(Knox) found the opening against their zone," said Plankenhorn. "He was active, got some open shots and made them."

The Black Tornado (4-3) limited the Washington school to just 29 percent shooting from the field and won the battle of the boards, 39-29.

Senior post Michael Levos led North with six rebounds and Matt Maurer and Kyle Waits corralled five each.

"We were sound on the defensive end," said Plankenhorn. "They didn't get a whole lot of easy shots."

North Medford returns to action Monday at home against Rex Putnam in the opening round of the Abby's Holiday Classic.
