BOYS BASKETBALL: Lake Oswego pulls away from North Medford

EUGENE — Third-ranked Lake Oswego rode the hot hands of its dynamic guard duo and North Medford suffered a shooting swoon as the Lakers pulled away for a 62-48 boys basketball victory in the Shamrock Slam Saturday at Sheldon High.

Jack Chlumak scored 21 points and Casey Graver 20 for Lake Oswego (2-0). They scored 11 of their team’s 19 points as the Lakers stretched a four-point halftime lead to 49-34 entering the fourth.

“The first half was a dogfight, back and forth, they took a little bit of a lead, then we took the lead,” said North Medford coach Scott Plankenhorn. “It was a really good first half for us. We were playing really solid, really competitive basketball.”

He attributed the third-quarter lull by the Black Tornado (2-2) to cold shooting despite open attempts.

“We just didn’t quite make our shots and they hit everything,” said Plankenhorn of North, which was 1-1 in the round-robin tournament. “They got a lot of good stuff from their two guards.”

Lake Oswego boasts a roster of seven players 6-foot-4 or taller. North has three.

“They wore us down,” said Plankenhorn. “They’re a little bigger than us, a little more physical than us at every position. I think we got a little worn down. They kept executing, and we did some executing, we just didn’t make those shots where we had good looks.”

Nick Karrick paced the Tornado with 11 points and three steals, and Jett Carpenter scored 10 and grabbed four steals before fouling out. Bryce Dyer snared eight rebounds and Landon Ellis had four assists.
