A 12-0 run midway through the second half turned this all-star game into a rout, and the Oregon girls snapped its five-game skid to the Washington girls at the Northwest Shootout with an easy 99-70 victory at the Chiles Center in Portland on Saturday night.
Johanna Paine led Oregon with 20 points. Jordan Reynolds, who is headed to Tennessee, added 19 points and six assists.
Time and time again, Reynolds, of Central Catholic, and Oregon City point guard Montana Walters got deep into the lane, leading to easy baskets and big runs.
In fact, Reynolds had the play of the day when she twirled a behind-the-back pass to Sara Curl for an easy layin in the second half.
“Honestly, you can tell they have played a lot of basketball together,” Washington coach Jim Redmon said. “I know they are from a bunch of different teams, but a lot of them played on one AAU team (Team Concept). You could tell they have rhythm, they had flow.”
About the only positives from the Washington team came from Skyline’s Haley Smith (13 points, nine rebounds) and Federal Way’s Raven Benton (13 points, three steals).
“It was OK. We tried our best,” Benton said. “They are really good. They are very athletic. They run the floor. They have shooters. They do everything right. They don’t have any lapses.”
Wilson’s Tia Briggs added eight points.
