Murphy, a part-time starter in the spring, also has missed games this winter with a knee injury.

F Beaux Bruegman, Jr., 5-10

Bruegman was an all-SWC selection as a freshman and has been a team leader this season, averaging 8.1 points, seven rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. “Beaux can play all five positions and score at all three levels,” coach Brian Brancato said. 

G Paityn Rhode, Sr., 5-7

Rhode is a four-year varsity player who stretches the floor (36% from three-point range) and has shown marked improvement as a rebounder. She averaged 6.8 points per game in December. 

F Gabbie Harms, Jr., Sheldon 5-10

Harms is back this winter after missing most of the spring season with an ankle injury. Brancato called her “arguably the best athlete in our program,” and she averaged 8.3 points and seven rebounds in December. “She has the ability to score at all three levels and rebounds with reckless abandon,” he added.

G Diamond Wright, Fr., 6-0

Wright is a versatile combo guard who led the Irish in scoring at 9.1 points per game in December while grabbing 3.3 rebounds. “Long and athletic, she’s incredibly quick with the ability to get to the rim at will,” Brancato said. 

South Eugene

G Sofia Megert, Sr., 5-4

Megert was a first-team all-SWC performer two years ago. She led the Axe in December at 18.3 points per game, 4.3 rebounds and two assists. “A great leader for us,” coach Tash O’Brien said. “She is an outstanding player and a very dynamic scorer — a knockdown shooter.” 

G Alia Harris, Sr., 5-8

Harris might be the team’s best all-around player, excelling on offense (9.7 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists) and serving as one of the best defenders in the SWC. “Her offensive game has come along a lot,” O’Brien said. “She is a solid scorer both in transition and the halfcourt.”  

F Avia Tuguldur, So., 5-9

Tuguldur is still a project on offense, but she has been the team’s top rebounder, grabbing six per game. “She is inexperienced at the varsity level but quickly showing her value to our team,” O’Brien said. 

South Medford

G Donovyn Hunter, Jr., 5-11

Hunter was a first-team all-Southern Oregon selection in the spring. The state’s No. 5 junior recruit according to Prep Girls Hoops averaged 26 points in December and holds offers from several Pac-12 schools.

Logue, a second-team all-Southern Oregon selection in the spring, became the 15th Panther to sign with a Division I school during coach Tom Cole’s 15-year tenure when she inked with UC Riverside of the Big West in November. She averaged 16 points (season-high 29) and led the team in rebounding in December. 

F Tanesha Coley, Sr., 5-10

Coley, an all-Southern Oregon honorable mention pick in the spring, has been a solid third scoring option this winter, with a 20-point game under her belt.

G Lottie Dillard, Sr., 5-7

Dillard missed the first four games of the season with an injury but has been a poised addition to the backcourt since her return.  

F Kim Ceron, So., 6-0

Ceron is a very athletic wing with the potential to become another in the Panthers’ long line of Division I signees.
