North Medford storms past Crater

For the second straight night, North Medford got off to a rousing start and put the game out of reach early in a 72-36 win over Crater in nonleague boys basketball Saturday at North Medford High.

Senior guard Tucker Barry scored seven of his 12 points in a first-quarter surge that saw the Black Tornado take a 19-4 lead by the end of the frame. Junior post Brad Allen and sophomore Kaison Faust also paired together with some nice inside-outside play as Allen had six points and Faust managed four in the opening quarter.

North Medford forced 16 of Crater’s 22 turnovers in a first half that ended with the Tornado up 40-18.

“Our pressure early again was a very big factor and obviously led to us getting into transition and getting some easy baskets,” said North Medford head coach Scott Plankenhorn.

Brian Schireman scored 10 of his 15 points in the third quarter and finished with four assists, while Tyren Wolfe had four points, five rebounds and four assists for the Black Tornado (2-0).
