Panthers claim third in Hawaii

HONOLULU, Hawaii — The fifth-ranked South Medford girls basketball team captured third place at the ‘Iolani Prep Classic with a 74-63 victory over host ‘Iolani Saturday.

Julissa Tago, who has signed to play at the University of Hawaii, recorded 21 points, five assists and three rebounds, Jasmin Falls had 20 points and seven rebounds and Lauren Orndoff went for 19 points, five rebounds and four assists for the Panthers, who led 36-30 at halftime.

Tago and Orndoff were named to the all-tournament team.

Hannah Washington turned in 11 points and 19 rebounds for South (3-1), which went 2-1 at the tournament.

Falls came up especially big for the Panthers against ‘Iolani (5-5), South head coach Tom Cole said.

“It was really a breakout game for her,” Cole said. “She was awesome. She was so important today. She made a number of big plays and just had an all-around good game.”

South outscored the home team 19-14 in the final frame to help seal the hard-fought triumph.

“(‘Iolani) plays fast and quick and they get the ball up the court,” Cole said. “They really spread us out. It was a tough environment.”

The Panthers next play Arcata in Miramonte, Calif., on Friday.
