Hoop Heaven - It's Playoff Time
Oregon's own version of March Madness kicks off this week with the OSAA Basketball Championships.  The girls tournament will be held in the Chiles Center on the University of Portland Campus, and the boys will be at "The Pit"...McArther Court at the University of Oregon in Eugene.  The Metro League will be sending the defending state girls champion, Southridge High School, which looks like a strong possibility to repeat.  For the boys, defending state champion, Jesuit High School, will definitely have their work cut out for themselves as Lake Oswego and South Medford are pegged as the tournament favorites.  This update includes games from the final weeks of the season and early playoff match-ups.
