Feb. 8 is huge for EPHS boys basketball

The Eagle Point Boys Basketball team traveled to Henley on Jan. 22 to take on the Hornets. The Eagles got off to a solid start leading 36-17 at the half and cruised to a 61-42 victory. Balanced scoring and strong defense were the keys to the victory.  Logan Winter lead the attack with 18 points and 15 rebounds. Jonathan Bolston added 17 points, Zach Reed 13 points/12 rebounds and Tyrone Holmes chipped in 12 points.

On Jan.25, the Eagles  traveled to North Valley and came away with a hard fought 52-41 victory. The Eagles lead by just 3 points at halftime but then held the scrappy North Valley squad to just 15 points in the 2nd half to pull away for the win. Logan Winter lead the team in scoring with 18 points and he also pulled down 10 rebounds.  Tyrone Holmes added 12 points and 11 rebounds while Zach Reed chipped in 10 points.

Against Hidden Valley on Jan. 29, the game went back and forth for much of the contest with Eagle Point the victor 54-51. Hidden Valley banked in a 3 point shot with 2.1 seconds remaining to tie the game at 51. After an Eagle timeout, Tyrone Holmes threw a long pass to Logan Winter who took two dribbles and let fly a 22 foot jumper that went in at the buzzer. Jonathan Bolston lead the Eagles in scoring with 18 points. Logan Winter added 15 points and 12 rebounds.

And last Tuesday, the Eagles traveled to Ashland to take on the Grizzlies in the first of two important contests. The Eagles prevailed by the score of 64-48. This was a hard fought contest throughout.  The Eagles hit 14 of 16 free throws in the 4th quarter to put the game on ice. Cesar Chavez stepped up big for the Eagles holding one of the top scorers in the valley, Billy Hansen to just 14 points.  Cesar also stepped up offensively contributing 12 points. The Eagles were lead in scoring by Logan Winter who had a game high 24 points. Jonathan Bolston added 10 points while Tyrone Holmes had 8 points and Zach Reed 6.

Eagle Point will host the Grizzlies Feb.8 in a do or die match. If the Eagles prevail, they  will be #1 seed in a home playoff Feb. 25. The winner of that match will head to the brand new Matthew Knight Court at the University of Oregon for the State OSAA Championship games starting Mar. 9.
