Taking a look at Coast Radio Sports…
On the Pac-12 basketball court…
Hallice (Hollis) Cooke scored 14 of his season-high 20 points in the second half yesterday and Oregon State beat UCLA 71-67. The win leaves the Beavs with their best record at the mid-point in the conference season since 1999… five-and-four.
In Eugene Saturday, Joseph Young scored 21 points, including a key 3-pointer that touched off a 12-nothing Oregon run midway through the second half and the Ducks defeated USC 78-66. It was the first conference home win of the season for Oregon… they’re three-and-six in Pac-12 play.
For the girls Friday night… Three Siuslaw Vikings scored in double digits as they downed the South Umpqua Lancers 59-48 in Myrtle Creek. Ashlee Cole led the way with 18 points; Halee Richards had 11 points and eight rebounds; Alexandra Opitz had ten points. Sophomores Mikaela Siegel and Meghan Pickell contributed eight points each. In other Far West Girls Basketball contests… number one Sutherlin ran over Brookings-Harbor 50 -33; Marshfield beat Douglas 52 -32.

In Reedsport the Myrtle Point Bobcats downed the Braves 60 -37; Lowell doubled Mapleton 61 – 29.
Two Siuslaw grapplers fared well at what turned into a four-way meet at Newport over the weekend. Andrew Tupua won the championship at 145 pounds with two-points on a take-down with one second remaining in the title match. Isaiah Burkhalter fell in the title round at 126 pounds 9-6 to finish in 2nd.
The meet had initially been intended to be a “double-dual” between Siuslaw and opponents Newport and Santiam, but due to a scarcity of wrestlers across the weight classes, it turned in to a four-way including Reedsport.
Siuslaw will host a Far West Tri-Meet Thursday at four pm, then wrap up the regular season on the road Saturday at the Cottage Grove Invitational.
