The Oregon Tech Women’s Basketball team was eliminated last night in Klamath Falls at Danny Miles Court.  No. 5 seed Corban University (18-11) took down No. 4 seed Oregon Tech with a 71-59 win in the 2019-20 Cascade Collegiate Conference Championship quarterfinals presented by U.S. Bank after an intense matchup that featured 11 lead changes and seven ties.

Strong defensive effort from the Lady Owls in the first quarter allowed them to take a 5-0 lead out of the gate. But when the Warriors came out of the drought, they came strong, scoring a 9-1 run to take the lead. A three-pointer from freshman Emma McKenney put Tech in a single point lead at the stanza.

The game remained close through the second, but Corban managed to gain distance as Jordan Woodvine and Shawnie Spink downed two three-pointers each in a 12-2 surge. The Warriors kept the three-pointers coming in the third stanza, scoring 5-of-10 to take a 10-point advantage as the Owls struggled from the field.

Freshman Makaila Napoleon led Oregon Tech with 16 points and was followed by junior Beth Derner, who scored 10. Junior Amanda Constant added eight boards, two steals, and one of the teams two blocks.

Tech led 27-4 from their bench as nearly every player contributed to the score. The Owls also forced 20 turnovers while only committing 10 of their own and led 24-18 in the paint.

The Lady Owls end their season with a 19-12 record.

In a matter of minutes Tuesday night at Lithia Motors Pavilion, the Southern Oregon University women’s basketball team went from staring down an early postseason exit to potentially one win away from the national tournament.

The third-seeded Raiders trailed sixth-seeded Warner Pacific by eight after Anna Farber’s bucket with 4:01 remaining in the quarterfinal round of the Cascade Conference Championships presented by U.S. Bank, but the Knights were shut out the rest of the way and SOU ended the game with 14 unanswered points to win 60-54.

The Raiders (19-9) trailed by as many as 13 and didn’t take their first lead until Syd’Nee Fryer’s free throw with 49 seconds to go. With 19 seconds left, Dominique Harding put an exclamation point on the rally by driving inside for a floater that turned into a three-point play, making it 58-54.

The win will send SOU to second-seeded Eastern Oregon for Friday’s semifinals. If top-seeded Northwest Christian defeats fifth-seeded Corban in the other semifinal, the SOU-EOU winner will collect the CCC’s second automatic bid to the NAIA Division II National Tournament.

The Portland Trail Blazers lost to the Boston Celtics as they wrapped up a homestand at the Moda Center.  The final was 118-106.

The Blazers are still without Damian Lillard who is out with a groin injury just before the All-Star break.   The Blazers are on the edge of elimination from possible NBA playoffs unless they can finish the season within the top 8th.  They are currently in 10th place in the Western Division.

The Henley Hornets win the Skyline Conference Boys Championship after beating North Valley on the road last night, 56-39.  Braden Lowry lead all scorers with 16 points.   The Hornets finished 8-2 on the season.

The Henley Hornets Girls team also won, as did the Mazama Girls last night.  The OSAA will announce the pairings for all playoff action this weekend.
