MEDFORD, Ore--- With Southwest Conference play starting, the North Medford girls found themselves in a tight spot. The Tornado was in a tie ball game, at Grants Pass. 

With 24 seconds left on the clock, senior guard Jane Ersepke brought the ball up the floor. Ersepke is known to be "Long Range Jane." The Grants Pass defense was ready for the sharp-shooter. The Grants Pants defense was not ready for junior guard Jazmyne Wells. 

Ersepke noticed a double-team on the way and did what all great point guards do. She passed the ball. Wells was locked and loaded. Wells stepped into the shot, and drained a long-distance bomb, with about 7 seconds left on the clock.

Grants Pass would go on to miss the final shot, and North Medford earned a key win, 3-30. 

On the back of Wells, North Medford opened conference play with a victory. 

In the video above, the North Medford coaches and players take you through the design and experience of the final play.
