BEND — The Ashland High boys basketball team suffered a mild case of the winter road trip doldrums on Wednesday, but snapped out of it just in time to beat Summit for the second time in two weeks, 47-45, in the fourth-place game of the Central Oregon Les Schwab Tournament.

The No. 8-ranked Grizzlies (7-5), playing sluggish most of the way after a 9 a.m. tip-off, trailed by as many as eight points and faced a 39-34 deficit entering the fourth quarter before burying the Storm (4-6) on Adam Pavlich's last-second jumper.

With the score knotted at 45 and 6.6 seconds on the clock, the Grizzlies ran a play for their 6-foot-3 point guard. Pavlich came through, hitting a 6-footer with 1.7 seconds to go.

The game-winner came after Ashland sharp-shooter Billy Hansen sank a 3-pointer with 30 seconds left to tie the game, giving him three treys for the game and 14 for the three-day tournament.

"It was a relief to get out of there with the win," Ashland head coach Larry Kellems said. "We knew we were the better team, but it's tough. We had three days over there living in a motel, early games, (Summit's) sleeping in their beds, we're sleeping in who knows what. It was not pretty, but they got the job done."

Jordan Resch led Ashland with 15 points, Hansen scored 11 and Pavlich and Reed Chasmar added six apiece.

The fourth-quarter comeback capped a solid finish to Ashland's preseason schedule despite an injury to high-scoring guard Mason Costantino, who's been out since a Dec. 11 game against Silverton with a sprained ankle. Since that loss the Grizzlies have won five of six games, including a first-place finish in their own Rotary Hoop Classic. The lone setback in that span was Monday's 73-64 overtime loss to No. 2 Mountain View.

"We feel really good," said Kellems, whose team opens its Southern Sky Conference schedule Tuesday at Crater. "We feel like we're sitting where we want to be sitting right now. We had a really tough schedule and came out of it with a winning record, and it could easily have been a 10-2 record. We've learned a lot, we've been without (Costantino) now for six games. We feel like we're tested and we're ready to go to league."
