Washington boys Come Back to Win 116-109

behind Andre Winston’s 24 points


BOYS RECAP – Washington 116, Oregon 109


(Portland) – James Madison University bound 6’2 Andre Winston and Virginia bound 6'6 Joe Harris both scored 17 second half points as the Washington team used a 14-3 run after Saint Mary’s bound Stephen Holt went out with a knee injury to pull away from a hot shooting Oregon squad for a 116-109 win in a back and forth, fast paced battle in the 17th annual Les Schwab Northwest Shootout on Saturday night at the Chiles Center on University of Portland’s campus.  Oregon led 59-54 at halftime, and 71-58 just three-minutes into the second half, but Washington used its superior size and quickness to wear the Oregon team down for its fourth straight victory in the series.  Oregon still owns the overall edge, 10-7.  Washington’s first run, 20-6 over five-minutes, gave them the lead, then a 14-3 run over a four-minute stretch gave Washington an eight point lead, 100-92, with six-minutes left.  Oregon pulled within three points twice in the final two minutes, but Washington closed the door by getting easy baskets and making foul shots.  Washington grabbed 22 offensive rebounds, leading to 24 second chance points, with most of them coming right at the rim.  Winston showed some nice quickness and ball handling and a tremendous pull-up game, scoring 24 points on 9 of 17 field goal shooting, making 2 of 3 three-pointers.  “Andre is blessed offensively,” Washington coach Bill Bakamus said.  “He has a multitude of ways that he can beat you.  Driving, pulling up, taking it to the basket.”  Idaho bound 6’5 Stephen Madison led the Oregon team with a game-high 27 points, making 3 of 7 three-pointers.

Oregon jumped out to a 59-54 halftime lead by shooting 19 of 31 (61%) from the field and making 5 of 10 three pointers.  Madison had 15 first half points and USC bound 6’5 Garrett Jackson scored 13 points, as both made 2 of 3 three-pointers.  McKay’s 6’1 Jordan Carter, headed to Corban College, took advantage of the fast paced, open court action to score 12 first half points.  Washington stayed close with offensive rebounds (13) and a balanced offensive attack, as five players scored at least 7 points.  6’9 Patrick Simon, a WSU bound forward, showed nice range, drilling two long three-pointers in the opening half for Washington.  "Oregon ouplayed us effort-wise in the first half," Bakamus said.  "We got revved up on defense in the second half, played with some energy and got some runs going."


Holt, a 6’4 point guard from Jesuit, was starting to come alive on offense for Oregon, scoring 13 points in the first 10 minutes of the second half, before limping off with a knee injury.  Holt got free for a fast break dunk, displaying as much emotion as I’ve ever seen him show, and then hit a three-pointer to give Oregon an 89-86 lead before the injury.  Holt left the court briefly, but was back on the bench with ice on his knee for the remainder of the game.  Holt finished with 19 points and 5 assists in 23 minutes. 


After Holt left, Washington went on a 14-3 run as Winston and Harris shouldered the scoring load.  Winston attacked the basket himself, hit pull-up jumpers or dished to teammates, looking poised and in control.  Harris used his athleticism to beat his man off the dribble, get open looks from teammates or clean up on the offensive glass.  Harris finished with 21 points, 6 rebounds (4 offensive), and 3 assists.  University of Portland bound 6’7 Ryan Nicholas looked right at home on his future court, showing a variety of strong post moves, scoring 16 points on 7 of 11 shooting.  Stanford bound, 5’11 Aaron Bright, showed some unreal quickness and ball-handling, scoring 12 points and getting 3 steals.  6’1 guard Isiah Umipig, a strong, steady point guard headed to Cal State Fullerton, had a poor shooting night, 1 of 7, but had a game-high 6 assists.


Jackson finished with 20 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 steals for Oregon.  Carter finished with 16 points and 4 assists.  Undecided 6’3 Michael MacKelvie was very active on both ends, adding 14 points and 3 steals, while Montana bound 6’9 Billy Reader scored 11 points as Oregon's only true post presence.  Whitman College bound 6’2 A.J. Grant, known as a shooter and scorer, played 24 minutes without attempting a shot, but had 6 rebounds and 5 assists.

Jazmine Redmon’s 18 points lead WA girls to 86-73 Win

GIRLS RECAP – Washington 86, Oregon 73


(Portland) – Two Gonzaga recruits, 5’8 Jazmine Redmon and 6’0 Danielle Walter, led a balanced Washington squad down the stretch, holding off a determined Oregon team that outscored Washington 24-6 to open the second half pulling within three points, 55-52, but getting no closer and eventually falling, 86-73, in the opening game of the Les Schwab NW Shootout at the Chiles Center.  It was Washington's third straight victory in the series, and 10th overall in 17 years.  Redmon led four players in double figures for Washington with 18 points, adding 7 rebounds and 3 steals; Walter had 14 points; 6’1 Carly Perkins had 14 points and 6 rebounds; 5’8 Erin Feeney had 15 points, making 5 of 8 three-pointers.   6’2 Stephanie Smolinski added 9 points and 11 rebounds.  “If I could coach players like this all the time, it would be easy,” Washington coach Joe Potter said.  “There's 10 All-Stars out there.”  Washington made 9 of 25 (36%) three-point attempts, while Oregon hit just 3 of 19 (16%).  Washington also outrebounded the Oregon girls, 51-42.  Undecided 6’1 Mackenzie Kerins was a force inside on offense, leading Oregon with 18 points, making 7 of 7 field goal attempts, while adding 6 rebounds and 3 steals.  Oregon’s most active player was PSU bound 6’1 Allie Brock, who had 16 points, 17 rebounds, 3 steals, and 2 assists.


Oregon jumped out to an early 8-3 lead as Kerins got four baskets in the first three minutes of the game.  Washington responded with a 14-2 run over the next six-minutes to take control of the game, 17-10, forcing Oregon to call timeout.  Undecided 5’10 Shoni Schimmel entered the game for the first time and we had a run and gun battle going.  The only problem for Oregon was that Washington was the team that had all the guns.  Washington went on another run, this time 12-2 over six-minutes, pushing out to a commanding 49-28 halftime lead.  Washington made 11 of 13 foul shots and hit 4 of 11 three-pointers.  Oregon didn’t make a shot from long range, going 0 for 9 in the half. 


Oregon came out of the locker room playing more aggressively and with energy and passion on defense.  The shots started falling too.  First, Schimmel and Columbia bound 5’8 Taylor Ward hit back-to-back three-pointers, cutting the deficit to 10 points, 55-45.  After two inside baskets, Ward drilled another three-pointer, this time cutting the gap to three points, 55-52, with 11:30 left in the game.  “We talked about shooting better,” Schimmel said of the halftime talk.  “Just, getting our legs under us.  The ball started to go in.  But, they are a good team.”  Oregon could get no closer.  Oregon used up so much energy getting back into the game, they started getting tired, committing careless turnovers and dropping easy passes.  “We knew they would make a run,” Potter said.  “We came out with no energy.  These girls are so good, you can’t stop them.  You just try to slow them down.”


5’8 Erin Feeney, headed to Western Washington, hit three three-pointers in just over three-minutes to push Washington back ahead by eight points, 66-58, with seven minutes to go.  Feeney mad 5 of 8 three-pointers for the game.  Redmon got driving layups on consecutive possessions with two-minutes remaining, pushing Washington’s lead back up to 81-67.  “Jazmine is a great, little ballplayer,” Potter said.  “She is a heady, intelligent player.”


Ward finished with 8 points. Schimmel had 5 points and 4 assists.  Eastern Oregon bound 5’8 Dominique Johnson had 6 points, 3 assists, and 2 steals.  Utah bound 5’10 Allison Gida had 6 points. Eastern Washington bound 6’0 Aubrey Ashenfelter added 4 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 steals.
