Hagert helps South stay perfect

BEND ' Andy Hagert's aggressive play set the tone for undefeated South Medford on Friday night.

Hagert, a junior wing, scored 13 of his game-high 17 points in the first half as the Panthers forged a big lead and walked off with a 74-55 victory over Mountain View in non-conference boys basketball.

Andy was going to the hole hard, South Medford assistant coach Jamie Hammericksen said. He's a tough matchup because he's strong and quick.

Tenth-ranked South Medford (3-0) finished the opening half on a 17-0 run to take a comfortable 44-18 lead at intermission.

We came out with good intensity, Hammericksen said, but it was in spurts. It's up to us to sort this out and make things more consistent.

South's full-court pressing defense gave the Cougars problems. The Panthers had six steals and forced 10 turnovers in the opening 16 minutes.

They were having trouble getting the ball past half court for quite a stretch, said Hammericksen. We obviously preach defense. When you see a couple guys diving on the floor, it gets contagious.
