Hall leads the charge as Roseburg routs Eagle Point
EAGLE POINT ' Roseburg senior Kerry Hall took matters into his own hands Thursday night, and in turn spelled doom for Eagle Point's boys basketball team.
Hall helped Roseburg break open a close game with the Eagles, draining five straight 3-pointers in a third-quarter surge that propelled the Indians to a 63-39 Southern Oregon Conference victory.
Eagle Point, 7-12 overall and 0-9 in SOC play, went into halftime with a five-point deficit but couldn't hold off Roseburg, which used a 22-4, third-quarter scoring advantage to pull away.
It was pretty close until Kerry Hall just went crazy on us, said second-year Eagle Point coach Rob Boye.
Hall finished with 17 points, while teammate Blake Krieg paced Roseburg (8-11, 4-5 SOC) with 18.
Tim Martinen scored a team-high 11 points for the Eagles, who played without starting center Cole Brown. The 6-foot-7 senior pulled a chest muscle while weightlifting earlier Thursday, and Boye said it's unclear when he will be able to return to the lineup.
Mike Bergseng picked up some of the slack caused by Brown's absence, scoring eight points and pulling down eight rebounds.
Overall, however, Eagle Point struggled to find the basket as Roseburg turned up its defensive intensity in limiting the Eagles to a 14-for-54 night from the field (26 percent).
They really played great defense in that third quarter, said Boye. They came out and denied everything we wanted to do.
In contrast, Roseburg connected on 48 percent of its shots from the field (26-for-54) as the Indians used several transition layups to pad their numbers.
