Mountain View rallies to top North, 53-47

SOC boys basketball

North Medford High boys basketball coach Gene Quilhaugh was feeling pretty good about his team early in the fourth period of Saturday's non-league game against Mountain View.

The Black Tornado held a 44-41 lead with six minutes to play and had the ball. But the Tornado missed a shot from point-blank range that could have added to its advantage and then over the next 4 minutes, North turned the ball over six times in seven possessions and was outscored 9-0.

When the smoke cleared, Mountain View had walked off with a 53-47 victory.

We put ourselves in position to have a good fourth quarter, but it didn't happen, Quilhaugh said. All of a sudden it became a charity event on our part.

Wes Towne scored a game-high 21 points and collected nine rebounds to pace the Tornado. Tate Mellbye added 13 points, eight rebounds and four steals for North (1-1).

Colby Summer led Mountain View (3-0) with 17 points.

South Medford (1-1) led by 12 with five minutes to play in the fourth quarter, but slipped for the second straight night as Bend quickly cut its deficit to three.

Trailing 32-25 late in the first half, the Eagles worked for the final shot only to turn the ball over and watch Redmond's Ryan Klontz drill a 3-point basket at the buzzer that gave the Panthers a 35-25 advantage.
