Pirates put clamps down in Skyline rout of Rogue River

PHOENIX — The Phoenix boys basketball team turned to its defense early on to put away Rogue River in a Skyline Conference game on Friday.

The Pirates (17-7, 10-4 Skyline) limited the Chieftains to 12 first-half points and held high-scoring guard Carson Frantz to eight points as Phoenix cruised to a 59-25 victory.

Mike Shepherd posted his 19th double-double of the season with 18 points and 10 rebounds in three quarters. Codey Barrett added 14 points and seven rebounds, and Nick Workman, starting at point guard in place of an injured Andrew George, had six assists and four steals.

Phoenix held Frantz, who scored a school-record 39 points in his last outing, to three points in the first half as the Pirates took a 36-12 lead into intermission.

"We've been talking all week about stepping up to the challenge and not just going through the motions," said Phoenix coach Brian Miller. "Even with the victory against North Valley (Tuesday night), we didn't come out and put it to them.

"Tonight, we didn't want Carson Frantz to come out and get going right away."

Rogue River is 4-19 overall, 2-12 in league.
