North boys romp in Abby’s opener

For the fourth straight game, the North Medford boys basketball team cranked things up following halftime.

The Black Tornado started the third quarter on a 19-0 run to distance itself from Dallas for a 67-32 triumph in the opening round of the 26th Abby’s Holiday Classic on Monday at North Medford High.

The win sends North Medford against Southwest Conference foe Roseburg in the second round at 7 tonight.

“I’m not sure,” said North Medford coach Scott Plankenhorn on why his team has been hot in third quarters. “I think our focus is just better coming out of halftime. I think we might be more focused and our attention to detail has just been better than the start of some of our games.”

North Medford (7-1) had already built a 30-17 halftime edge but stretched it to 53-22 by the end of the third.

Brian Schireman paced the Black Tornado with 15 points and Kaison Faust registered 11 points, 11 rebounds and four steals.

The Black Tornado also received 13 points and six boards from Brad Allen.
