PREP BASKETBALL: Crater takes victory and pays tribute to Bittle – Medford News, Weather, Sports, Breaking News



Nate Bittle, shown during his signing earlier this year, got his own senior night on Monday after Crater’s victory over Ashland.

CENTRAL POINT – Ashland was fortunate enough to clinch a victory over Crater in men’s basketball, but a 3-point attempt in the dying seconds did not fail, leaving the Comets with a 43-41 victory in their gym on Monday.

Crater limited the Grizzlies to six points in the final quarter and held them off for the final 43 seconds as Ashland had possession.

Colton Vranes scored 17 points and scored three of eight 3-pointers for the Comets (6-3). Hunter Chubb added nine points and Blake Eaton eight.

Finn Hilden paced Ashland (4-6) with 16 points and Egan Shields scored 10.

After the game, Crater paid tribute to former player Nate Bittle, a senior who attended school and graduated with his class last week. Bittle missed this senior basketball season because, with no guarantee that Oregon would play, he joined an academy team in California.

The 6-foot-11 Bittle, who has the career record for points, rebounds and blocks at Crater, was also recognized for his selection at the McDonald’s All-American Game. The match was canceled this year due to COVID-19.

Bittle will next play Oregon and head to school this week, preventing him from attending when Crater holds his official Seniors Night on Friday.
