South finishes strong at Nike Shootout

LAKE OSWEGO — A big surge before the half helped the South Medford girls basketball team wake up and turn its Nike Interstate Shootout finale into a victory.

The Panthers carried their 26-6 run from the final two minutes of the first half through the third quarter to halt a two-game losing streak with a 47-42 triumph over Skyview of Vancouver, Wash., on Wednesday at Lake Oswego High School.

Ula Chamberlain dropped in 16 points and Julissa Tago, who was named to the all-tournament team in the elite 16-team Swoosh Bracket, added 13 points for the Panthers (7-3).

Hannah Washington, who added eight points and 10 rebounds, polished off the second half with a buzzer-beating basket just after Tago had scored on consecutive possessions to begin South’s run.

“We came out much more aggressive in the second half,” said Panthers coach Tom Cole.

South Medford ran into a bit of adversity in the third, however, when starters Lauren Orndoff and Jasmin Falls picked up their fourth fouls. Jonnay Foote and Jeryka Johnson picked up the slack with some quality minutes, particularly at the defensive end.

“Foote provided amazing energy and helped the momentum shift,” said Cole. “She made some huge steals and played good defense on the ball and really made some good decisions. I thought our bench did an amazing job. They were a huge spark for us.”
