SPRINGFIELD — Before Wednesday, the South Medford girls basketball squad hadn't given up more than 48 points in a game.

That changed in a hurry against undefeated Springfield.

Buoyed by strong efforts from their 6-foot-6 post and quick guard, the Class 5A Millers defeated the Panthers, 77-57, in the nonconference contest.

Guard Dallas Frederikson poured in 30 points — mostly on transition opportunities and open looks — and center Mercedes Russell scored 24 points for Springfield (6-0).

The Millers led 34-31 at halftime before pouncing on the Panthers (4-2) in the third, outscoring them 24-12.

South cut into Springfield's lead in the final period, but simply couldn't keep up, head coach Tom Cole said.

"We've got to play four quarters of basketball and we're not there yet," Cole said. "We played with a low energy level and they are a top-ranked team and they took advantage. They seized the opportunity."

Tess Picknell had 16 points and Hanna Curtius 15 for South.
