Roseburg, KU finish tied for second

EAGLE POINT -- As tough as Roseburg center Matt Brown can be roaming the paint, guard Drew Libby can be just as dangerous from the outside.

Libby scored 20 points, including four 3-pointers, Tuesday night as the Indians ran off with a 67-40 Southern Oregon Conference season-ending victory.

The Roseburg win, coupled with Klamath Union's victory over Ashland, left both clubs 11-5 in conference. The teams meet Thursday at Roseburg to determine the SOC's No. 2 and No. — seeds in the Class 4A state playoffs.

The Eagles' defense kept the 6-9 Brown in-check in the first-half, limiting him to six points on foul shots.

But Libby picked up the slack, scoring 11 of his team's 18 points in the first quarter, including three of his four treys. He added five more points in the second quarter.

We wanted to stick on Drew, but they did a good job of screening for him, said Eagle Point coach Keith Williams. It doesn't take him long to get a shot off and they gave him just enough room to shoot.

The Eagles didn't help their own cause in the first-half, committing nine turnovers.

We kind of got tentative in the second quarter, said Williams. We just let them take us out of it.

Jake Cordell added 12 points for Roseburg, while Pat Anderson chipped in with 11.

John Lucas' nine points led Eagle Point (8-14, 5-11 SOC).

KLAMATH UNION 59, ASHLAND 47 -- At Ashland, Klamath Uhion (17-6, 11-5 SOC) outscored the Grizzlies 18-8 in the fourth quarter to nail down a second-place tie with Roseburg.

Ashland's Mario Alcala held SOC scoring leader Mark Chocktoot in check. Chocktoot hit 5-of-15 shots from the field and finished with 15 points. But it was Brian Hedlund, who did the most damage for the Pels, scoring 25 points.

The Pels took the lead for good on a 7-0 run early in the fourth quarter. Kyle Johnson put Klamath into the lead, 41-40. Then Chocktoot added a layin followed by Hedlund's basket and free throw to make it 46-40.

Alcala had 12 points to pace the Grizzlies (2-20, 1-15 SOC). Elijah Jordan added 11 points and 10 rebounds, while sophomore point guard Kris Pavilionis had 10 points, eight assists, three steals a blocked shot and just two turnovers.

MAZAMA 61, GRANTS PASS 60 -- At Klamath Falls, Kyle Michaelis sank a 3-pointer with 16 seconds to play, lifting Mazama to a victory in its final SOC game.

The Vikings (4-18, 2-14 SOC) will join the Class 3A Skyline Conference next fall.

Senior guard Brent Palmer scored 14 of his 17 points in the first-half, including 4-for-4 from 3-point range, to help Mazama take a 34-29 halftime lead.

Grants Pass all-star guard Obie Strickler departed the game in the second quarter with a sprained ankle and never returned.

Despite the loss of Strickler, the Cavemen rallied behind Reed Sorensen and Trent Thompson, who combined for 15 points in the third quarter. Grants Pass held a nine-point lead early in the final period.
