Thanks to the wintery weather in Oregon, several games were rescheduled a couple of days from Tuesday as teams from Central and Southern Oregon weren't able to make the trip. On Thursday night, we were able to take in two games involving Metro League teams - first a gutty win by Southridge over Mountain View and then a comeback close victory by North Medford over Sunset on the road.

In the first game of the night, Southridge struggled early but took control in the third quarter and fought off a late Mountain View comeback to win, 63-56. The Cougars chose to zone Southridge which seemed to confuse the Skyhawks, but in the beginning of the second half senior Brock Henry started to find his shot and behind the playmaking of senior Ben Pak, Southridge built a lead. But Mountain View wouldn't go away as senior Chase McClain and junior Grant Jordan kept on fighting back. A bucket by Pono Van Dusen with less than a minute left gave them some breathing room, 59-56, and the Skyhawks held the Cougars scoreless while hitting their free throws to finish out the game strong.
