Eagle Point opens with rout of Roseburg

ROSEBURG — After a tight first quarter, Eagle Point picked up the pace and gradually pulled away Wednesday for a 46-33 victory over Roseburg in a nonconference season opener for both girls basketball teams.

The Eagles (1-0) managed a two-point lead after the first frame but outscored Roseburg 12-4 in the second quarter to earn an advantage they never gave away.

“Definitely we were able to get to the basket more and got some breakways in that second quarter,” said EP head coach Marvin Denman. “Once the tempo picked up, the girls felt really good about things and we started to run the floor and pick up the pace. I was really proud about the defense and how that translated into offense a little bit for us.”

Returning junior Andrea Flores scored a game-high 15 points with six rebounds to lead Eagle Point, while senior Alexa Burgess added eight points.

“Andrea is scrappy and that helps out a lot and she gets out in the open floor and can really finish,” added Denman.
