MEDFORD — The Roseburg girls basketball team faded in the third quarter and North Medford took advantage, holding on for a 28-22 Southwest Conference victory Friday night.

Roseburg trailed the Black Tornado 14-12 at halftime, but was outscored 8-2 in the third quarter and unable to make up the deficit.

"This is one we should have won, but we had a lot of blown layups and wide-open opportunities," Roseburg coach Chad Smith said. "But it was a fun one to be in. It was an exciting game."

Ali Stevens had a game-high 12 points for North Medford (3-7, 2-3 SWC), which got a key 3-pointer from Kiera McNamee to give the Black Tornado a late 26-22 lead.

Amy Carpenter had 11 points for the Indians (0-8, 0-4), who visit Crater Wednesday.
