Top performances

Brady Rice, Beaverton, junior

Down 13 going into the fourth quarter, Rice helped the Beavers turn it around and pull our a 54-52 victory over Central Catholic. The junior went 8 for 15 from the floor to lead the game in scoring with 22 points. He also pulled down five rebounds and had one assists. Rice made a couple 3-pointers and went 4 for 6 from the free throw line to give the Beavers a scoring option at each level. Look for more of that in the next round against Cleveland.

Luke Johnson, Central Catholic, senior

It's hard to guard the 6-foot-8 frame of Johnson and he showed in the 54-52 loss to Beaverton. Despite the Rams coming up just short, Johnson went for 22 points and was 11 for 17 from the floor. He pulled down six rebounds as well to help give the Rams in the tight contest. With his size and skills, watch out for some more big games the rest of the LSI.

Christian Green, Cleveland, junior

Green had a monster night with 23 points and 18 rebounds as the Warriors outscored David Douglas 33-9 in the final quarter to win 80-53. At only 6-foot-3, Green clearly showed his ability to play bigger than he is as 14 of his rebounds came on the defensive end. He went 10 for 15 from the floor as well to help Cleveland turn the game into a blowout and advance to play Beaverton.

Julian Phillips, Link Academy

Phillips showed why he's a LSU commit in the 80-45 victory over Tigard. He went 6 for 7 from the floor and a perfect 5 for 5 on 3-pointers plus made three made free throws on three attempts. Phillips was one of five players in double figures as Link Academy made itself known as the team to beat at the LSI behind Phillips sharpshooting.

Jesse Jones, Barlow, senior

The Bruins left off the gas a bit to let Sherwood back in, but hung on 56-51 behind a 10-point, nine-rebound night from Jones. While Nathan Jones was the leading scorer with 13 points, Jesse Jones also pitched in big on defense with two steals and two blocks, plus two assists. The Bruins big man did a little bit of everything and they'll need that again Tuesday playing Roosevelt in the quarterfinals.
