Tornado bounces back, tops Mountain View

BEND — Following a frustrating loss the night before, North Medford head coach Kailey Bostwick on Saturday talked to the Black Tornado seniors about the importance of taking charge at the end of a close game.

They got the message.

Senior point guard Becca Allen scored 14 points, senior post Mikayla Murphy hit 4 of 5 free throws in the fourth quarter and North pulled away late for a 53-44 nonconference win over Mountain View.

On Friday, the Tornado let a late lead slip away in a loss to Bend.

"Instead of playing not to lose, they played to win," Bostwick said, "and in the fourth quarter they stepped it up and really (played well) defensively. We had about four steals in a row, at least."

The Tornado (3-2), which snapped a two-game losing streak, nailed 7 of 8 free throws in the final frame.

"We just got to the line with confidence and shot the ball well, which obviously was a game-changer for us," Bostwick said.

Down 29-24 at the half, North attacked the basket in the second half to turn the game around. The Tornado ended up with 24 free throw attempts, making 17.

Freshman guard Sydney Thomas played a key role, draining a jump shot that Bostwick called "a dagger" with about three minutes to go. Moments later, North converted a three-point play following a steal to bury the Cougars (2-3).

Bostwick also singled-out point guard Jocilynn Ellis, who scored nine points, as having a great all-around game.
