Top-ranked Bruins deny Eagles

EAGLE POINT — Logan Winter and the Eagle Point boys basketball team found an early groove Friday night, but Brookings-Harbor upset that trend in the second quarter to remain perfect on the season.

Winter drained all three of his 3-pointers in the first quarter as Eagle Point opened up an 18-13 lead over the Class 4A top-ranked Bruins, but that advantage proved to be short-lived.

Behind Fred Carpening and the Bansemer twins, Chase and Kenton, Brookings-Harbor took control with a 20-6 edge in the second quarter and kept that momentum en route to a 66-49 nonleague victory.

Carpening, a 6-foot-4 wing, scored a game-high 19 points and the Bansemers, who have signed to play at Oregon Tech next winter, combined for 31 points to improve to 8-0.

"They're a very, very nice team," said Eagle Point coach Brian Winter of the Bruins. "We hung around and it was still a nine-point game at the half, but they started to separate a little bit. It was just too much firepower in the end."

Chase Bansemer, a 6-2 point guard and reigning 4A player of the year, tallied 14 points and the 6-8 Kenton Bansemer added 17 points.

Austin Rowley poured in a team-high 17 points and Austin Marlia added 10 points and seven assists for the Class 5A Eagles (7-4).

Derek Tuttle also had seven rebounds and six points, while all nine of Winter's points came in the first-quarter outburst.

"In the second quarter we just didn't take care of the ball and we didn't get a lot of shots at the basket," added coach Winter. "We had numerous turnovers and had a tough time stopping them."
