Fiegi leads South to win

KLAMATH FALLS — Eric Fiegi was a presence on both ends of the court for South Medford Friday night.

Despite being a focus of Klamath Union's defense, Fiegi managed 15 points as the Panthers defeated the Pelicans 70-58 in Southern Oregon Conference boys basketball.

The 6-foot-8 junior post was an efficient 7-of-10 from the field.

We had to put a lot of pressure on the perimeter because we didn't want them to get the ball to Fiegi inside, Klamath Union coach Bret Crawford said. He's definitely the best big kid we've played against so far. He does a real good job of keeping his body away from the shooter and blocked a lot of shots. That reduced us to a perimeter offense.

The Pels (6-8 overall, 3-3 SOC) launched 23 3-pointers, hitting on 10. Tyler Baker sparked the KU attack with 17 points, including four from 3-point range.

With starting guard Craig Tomlins not playing, Pat Lower and Ryan Heil ran the Panthers offense with precision and combined for 26 points.

They spread the court and beat our trapping defense with crisp passing, said Crawford. Heil is the complete package. I thought he did an effective job of getting the ball to the open man.

The Panthers (12-4, 4-2 SOC) took advantage of their free-throw opportunities, connecting on 24-of-31. Sophomore Boomer Marshall was 7-of-7 from the line and Heil was 7-for-8.

In the fourth quarter, South made 14-of-18 free throws with Lower, Heil and Marshall combining for 11-of-11.
