Sheldon Secures Second Place in SWC

By Jacob Archer

Sheldon beat Roseburg 61-54 on Friday, led by a game high 13 points from Griffin Line.

The Irish (12-10, 4-2) had a balanced scoring night to help secure sole possession of second place in the Southwest Conference.

For Roseburg (13-10, 4-3) Colin Warmouth scored 26 points, but it wasn’t enough for Roseburg, which now slides down to fourth place after South Eugene beat South Medford 60-43.

Sheldon coach Dan Clark was pleased with how his team played defensively.

“We rebounded the ball very well tonight, we didn’t give them too many second-chance points,” said Clark. “We made Colin work for his shots tonight, he didn’t get a ton of easy ones, and he still scored 26 points because he’s a special talent. But he had to work for them.”

Sheldon is currently on a four game winning streak, and coach Clark would like for that to continue. “We just have to focus and have competitive practices, which will help in the game. We’ve got to make practices harder than the game, and so our guys have responded pretty well to that recently. We want to get better every day and hopefully the game will take care of itself.

Senior forward Patrick Herbert ended the night with only seven points, but would still like to improve on a few things for the rest of the season. “Finishing and playing defense,” he said.

He’s also looking for his team to improve in a couple different aspects of the game: “Protecting the ball and not turning it over.”
