PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — West Linn won back-to-back state basketball titles with a win over Sheldon at the Moda Center on Saturday.

The Lions won 67-56

Jefferson coach Pat Strickland suspended half his team for a violation of team rules and only suited six players in the 5A Boys title game with Churchill. But it was the right six, and Jefferson came back from a big deficit to repeat as 5A state champions, 59-53.

For the 12th time in their history, the Oregon City Pioneers girls team won the Oregon state 5A basketball championship, March 15, 2014 (KOIN 6 News)

For the 12th time, but the first in 5 years, the Oregon City Pioneers girls team won the state title with a 57-48 victory over South Medford.

In the 5A girls final, Leslie Robinson — President Obama’s neice — scored 29 points for Corvallis High, but it wasn’t enough as Lexi Bando of Willamette also scored 29 to lift Willamette to a 63-54 win.
