BOYS BASKETBALL: Carpenter, Dyer lead North past Roseburg

ROSEBURG — Led by Jett Carpenter’s big offensive night and Bryce Dyer’s impressive game in the paint, the North Medford boys basketball team finished the regular season on a strong note.

Carpenter scored both inside and out en route to a game-high 25 points and Dyer cleaned up the glass with a monster 20 rebounds as the duo led the Black Tornado to a 67-53 win over Roseburg in the regular-season finale for both teams on Friday.

With the win, North Medford wrapped up second place in the Southwest Conference with an 8-2 record. North will enter the playoffs with a 15-9 overall record.

“We’ll see what we can do,” North head coach Scott Plankenhorn said of the playoffs.

Carpenter hit three of the Tornardo’s eight 3-pointers as North carried a 32-16 lead into halftime.

“He had a little bit of everything going tonight,” Plankenhorn said of Carpenter. “He was attacking the basket, hitting from outside and just had a solid night overall.”

On top of the 20-rebound game, Dyer pitched in seven points.

“He was all over the offensive glass and cleaning up on defense,” Plankenhorn said. “They were probably half and half (offensive and defensive). He was very active.”

North sophomore Treyson Neff also finished in double figures with 13 points.

Roseburg (3-20 overall, 0-10) got 18 points from Jacob Parker and 12 points from Matt Parker.
