What's ahead

Beaverton at Jefferson boys basketball: The Demos are considered one of, if not the top, Class 6A state title contender, a team loaded with Division One players in Marcus Tsohonis and Kamaka Hepa — a transfer from Alaska who's a top-50 recruit in the Class of 2018. Jefferson is tough, well-coached and veteran-laden after reaching the 6A semis last year and losing to eventual state champ West Linn. Beaverton began the season well and have the talent level and experience to compete with Jefferson. Tip time is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at Jefferson High School on Friday.

Jesuit at Sunset girls basketball: The Metro League season for both girls and boys basketball begins in earnest earlier than normal as the defending league champion Crusaders and upstart Apollos do battle in their respective league openers. Sunset is bent on reaching the Class 6A state tournament and possibly winning Metro. Jesuit is retooling with young players, but it won the past two league crowns and will compete tooth-and-nail to keep the throne. The two teams face off at 7:15 p.m. at Sunset High School on Tuesday.

Southridge at Westview boys basketball: It'll be a battle of speed and athleticism versus size when the Skyhawks and Wildcats square off in their Metro League opener. Southridge features four players who are 6-foot-5 or taller and start two 6-foot-8 posts in Robert Hester and Filip Fullerton. On the other side of the floor, the Wildcats are supremely athletic with Mason Elliott and Said Ali, among others, but not exceptionally huge in the paint. The Metro rivals are scheduled to tip off at 7:15 p.m. at Westview High School on Tuesday.
