Scoresheet: PSU promotes basketball coaches
PSU basketball — Portland State has promoted Jase Coburn to be head men's basketball coach and Chelsey Gregg to be head women's basketball coach.
Coburn, 37, has been an assistant coach for the Vikings for eight seasons, the last four as the associate head coach for Barret Peery. Peery recently left to become a top assistant coach at Texas Tech.
A native of Mesa, Arizona, Coburn started coaching an AAU team at age 18, was an assistant coach at Phoenix Junior College at 21 and the high school varsity coach at McClintock (Arizona) High at 23. He coached there for four years, winning one state 4A championship.
Coburn has been at PSU since he was hired in 2013 by Tyler Geving and has recruited several of PSU's impact players since his arrival.
New PSU women's head coach Chelsey Gregg was an assistant coach for six seasons under Lynn Kennedy, the last three as associate head coach. She followed Kennedy to PSU from Southern Oregon, where she served as an assistant coach after playing at SOU for Kennedy, who recently left to become coach at McNeese State.

Timbers coach Giovanni Savarese on Friday said that Sebastian Blanco and Jeremy Ebobisse remain out and that Andy Polo remains unavailable because of paperwork related to his green card.
College women's soccer — Ally Cook scored from a Chai Cortez corner kick in the 97th minute to give Oregon a 1-0 win over visiting Oregon State on Friday.
The win improved Oregon to 6-5-5, the first winning record for the Ducks since 2006. First-year Oregon Graeme Abel said the Ducks should be in the mix when the NCAA Tournament field is announced on Monday, though the field at 48 instead of 64 this spring hurts their chances.
Oregon State finishes 4-11-1.
All four of Cook's goals for Oregon this season have been game-winners.
