PORTLAND — Junior Khyan Rayner had 19 points and Jesuit made history by defeating Lake Oswego 52-42 in the OSAA Class 6A boys state championship game on Saturday night at the Rose Garden Arena.
The Crusaders (26-2), the tournament's top seed, won their fourth consecutive 6A state title — something that hasn't been done in any Oregon classification in boys basketball.
Xavier Coleman and Jack Hackman each added 11 points for Jesuit, which led by as many as 13 points.
"For me, personally, it's great to get this win," Rayner said. "But it's more for Jesuit, and the teams that came before us, and the Jesuit community."
Calvin Hermanson had 20 points and nine rebounds for Lake Oswego (22-6), which won its lone state title in 2006 when the Lakers were led by NBA All-Star Kevin Love.
