No. 2 Southridge vs. No. 7 Beaverton

FINAL: Beaverton hangs on to upset Southridge 64-56

2:38 to play, Beaverton's lead is only 4 at 54-50

319 left, and the Skyhawks are making a comeback. But Kaden Groenig misses all 3 FTs after being fouled on a 3-point attempt, costing them a chance to draw closer than 54-46

End 3rd: Beaverton 47, Southridge 36

415 3Q and Beaverton still in control 44-29

HALFTIME: Southridge rights the ship a bit. Beaverton 34, Southridge 22

Timeout Southridge: Skyhawks are reeling, down 32-15 to Beaverton

End 1st: Chance Winter with the emphatic dunk to cap Beaverton's 16-2 run to lead 23-9 over Southridge.

2 min left 1Q ... Beaverton up 16-9

Southridge 7, Beaverton 7, midway through the first quarter 

No. 3 Roosevelt vs. No. 11 Grant

Muhammed with a clean look at a 3 that misses with 4 seconds left, which is just enough time for Owen Nathan to rebound, flip the ball ahead to Hill, who raced to the basket and laid it in just as the clock hits triple zeroes

Oh my! Roosevelt wins 67-65

Vashon Harges hits both FTs for Grant, but Morris attacks and feeds Syrius Owens for the tying basket with :19.5 left. Timeout Generals with 8.9 left

Morris answers for Riders, but White fouls out trying to draw charge with 25.2 left

Hill returns as Grant hits 2 FTs to take 63-61 lead 47.2 seconds left

Timeout Roosevelt 220 4Q - Hill gets steal out of midcourt trap, then comes up hopping on one leg after turning ankle in front of Riders bench. 61-59 Roosevelt

Morris squirms for a basket surrounded by 3 Generals to put Roosevelt back up 59-57 with 317 left. Timeout now by Grant to save possession, leaving Generals with 1 for final 3+ in regulation.

James completes the and-1 to tie it at 53, but Hill answers with nifty move inside as Riders reclaim lead with 503 left

Generals are on a 22-5 run since trailing 48-30 with 526 left in 3Q

Back-to-back putbacks by Gates and James, and the deficit is ONE 53-52 as Riders call time with 527 to play. It is electric in this building.

Grant scores first 8 of 4Q, Hill with 4 fouls, getting loud in here!

End 3rd: Roosevelt 53, Grant 40

Fernandis fouls out for Roosevelt with 108 left in 3Q

Timeout Riders: Just as Generals show signs of life after a Keone Gates 3, Morris answers with a 3 of his own to make it 53-37 Roosevelt with 304 left 3Q

Foul trouble starting to arise for Roosevelt - Terrence Hill, Nathan both with 3 fouls

Both teams trading baskets to open 3Q. Back-to-back FGs for Morris, though, prompt a Grant timeout. 526 left in period, Riders up 48-30

Scoring leaders: Grant, Quincy Scott 8. Roosevelt, Owen Nathan 16 w 5 rebs, Utrillo Morris 10 w 6 rebs, 3 stls

Roosevelt shoots 51.7% in first half to Grant's 24.1% … not going to win many games with that disparity

HALFTIME: This time it's Roosevelt with the buzzer-beater as Owen Nathan buries a right-corner 3 to give Riders a 40-23 advantage over Grant going to the locker rooms.

Check that - Grant did not take Scott out after his 3rd foul, so he picks up his 4th with 1:25 left!

First Rider with 3 fouls is John Fernandis, but Grant misses 2 FTs

And now Quincy Scott with his 3rd foul for Grant. That's 3 starters on the bench for the rest of the half with 204 left

Timeout Grant 2:33 2Q - Chance White layin gives Roughriders a 30-17 lead.

And a second General — Keion James — now has 3 fouls.

Grant's Charlie Kapranos picks up third foul at 421 2Q, Roosevelt up 22-15

Timeout Roosevelt 542 2Q. Generals on 6-0 run, with Mekhi Muhammad's layup off a turnover bringing them within 20-15.

End 1st: Roosevelt 16, Grant 9 thanks to pretty runner by Generals guard Zhalei Van to beat buzzer

Timeout Grant, and Roosevelt is up early 8-0 4:11 1Q
