Ashland falls to McKay in Abby’s Classic

Malik Pippa scored 24 points to lead four Grizzlies in double figures, but Ashland squandered its best offensive performance of the season in an 86-80 loss to McKay in the fourth-place game of the Abby’s Holiday Classic Wednesday at North Medford High School.

Pippa, a junior guard, scored 12 points in the fourth quarter to keep the Grizzlies within striking distance, but McKay drained nine free throws in the final stanza, six by Darrell Woods, to hang on and clinch fourth in the eight-team tournament.

“We played with great effort, just ran out of gas down the stretch,” said Ashland head coach Sam Osofsky, whose team has played five games in nine days. “We are excited about how well we’ve competed and improvement we showed during this tough stretch before we go into league next week.”

Junior guard Peyton Fuller hit five 3-pointers on his way to 19 points, while Jake Hansen and Walker Shibley scored 11 points apiece for the Grizzlies (4-6), who open league play Jan. 8 at home against Churchill.

Sophomore guard Khyler Beach scored 21 points and Woods 19 to pace Class 6A McKay (4-6).
