Here is a look at Tuesday’s quarterfinal matchups at the OSAA 5A boys basketball state tournament.

The entire four-day event will be held at Gill Coliseum with the semifinals scheduled for Thursday and the placing games Friday.

No. 8 South Albany vs. No. 1 Wilsonville

Records: South Albany 19-5, 9-5 Mid-Willamette Conference (third); Wilsonville 24-1, 14-0 Northwest Oregon Conference (first)

Time: 1:30 p.m.

South Albany has reached the state quarterfinals for the first time in school history.

The Rebels are led by a pair of all-MWC juniors in wing Jake Costello (first team) and point guard Jaden Guilford (second team). The duo combined for 35 points in South’s 50-46 win over Putnam in Friday’s state round of 16.

The top-seeded Wildcats, whose only blemish came against 6A West Salem in December, have advanced to the finals in each of the past two seasons. Wilsonville fell 33-32 to Silverton in 2015 and routed Liberty 47-31 to win the title last year.

Wildcats senior wing Zach Reichle, an Oregon State signee, is the reigning 5A player of the year.

No. 5 La Salle vs. No. 4 Summit

Records: La Salle 18-5, 12-2 Northwest Oregon (second); Summit 20-2, 11-1 Intermountain Conference (first)

Time: 3:15 p.m.

Summit survived a strong challenge from Central in the round of 16, holding off the Panthers 53-47 at home. The Storm placed third at state a season ago.

Senior forward Andy Jones paced Summit with 16 points and five assists against the Panthers. Senior post Cam Baker (6-foot-5) is the school’s all-time leader in blocked shots.

La Salle, which routed Mountain View 72-46 to get to Gill, has only lost to Wilsonville after stumbling to a 3-3 start.

No. 14 Parkrose vs. No. 6 Crescent Valley

Records: Parkrose 12-12, 7-7 Northwest Oregon (fifth); Crescent Valley 17-7, 11-3 MWC (first)

Time: 6:30 p.m.

Parkrose delivered the round of 16’s most shocking result with a 64-57 victory at No. 3 Springfield. Isaac Bonton, a senior point guard and Montana State signee, scored 36 points in the upset.

The Broncos have won three straight games after a 2-5 stretch late in Northwest Oregon Conference play. 

Crescent Valley easily dispatched Sandy 76-57 Friday night behind 25 points from MWC player of the year Tariq Harris, a junior wing.

The Raiders are in the quarterfinals for the first time since 2011.

No. 7 Pendleton vs. No. 2 Churchill

Records: Pendleton 15-4, 9-0 Columbia River Conference (first); Churchill 21-4, 13-1 Midwestern League (first)

Time: 8:15 p.m.

Pendleton needed double overtime to knock off visiting Corvallis 69-67 in the round of 16.

Senior guard Caden Smith led the Buckaroos with 23 points while senior center Johnny Stuvland tallied 17 points and 15 rebounds. Smith was a second-team all-state pick last year.

Lucas Wilson powered Churchill past Silverton 62-52 to reach Gill. The senior guard and two-time Midwestern League co-player of the year finished with 30 points and 11 rebounds.
