SALEM — Enterprise’s Marta Stangel and Union’s Tessa Nicholson represented Eastern Oregon well at the 2A East-West all-star basketball series in Salem over the weekend.

Stangel scored 33 points and grabbed 25 rebounds in a pair of victories for the East squad coached by Nicholson.

The East won the first game, 75-52, Friday, before rolling to a 73-51 victory Saturday at the C.E. Jeffers Sports Center at Corban University.

“It was awesome,” Nicholson said. “It was a huge honor to coach them. That’s obviously one of your goals and it’s another thing to check off the list.”

Nicholson said her team had very little time to get familiar with one another on the court so she tried to keep things simple.

“The girls were nervous. I just told them to play defense and communicate. They’re basically playing street ball out there. But they worked well together and fed off each other,” Nicholson said.

The East side dominated both games, jumping out to a 39-27 first-half lead in Friday’s game. The East outscored the West 34-24 in the second half.

Saturday was no different, as the East led 35-15 at halftime before pulling off the one-sided win.

Stangel scored 14 points and had 12 rebounds and six assists in Friday’s victory. Sydney France of Willamina also had a double-double for the East, scoring 11 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. In Saturday’s win, Stangel had a game-high 19 points and came away with 13 rebounds.

“Marta did a great job,” Nicholson said. “We used her as a guard and a post player and she really took charge. It was really fun getting to know the players.”

Nicholson said she had no assistant coach there due to communication issues with the Oakland coaching staff. She said she was asked to coach through an email.

But no assistant was no problem.

“All of the girls did a great job for being out of shape and having a lack of practice time,” Nicholson said. “It was definitely a different experience.”
