EUGENE and CORVALLIS, Ore. — A pair of unbeatens lost during a dramatic Thursday at the OSAA State Basketball Championships.

At the Class 5A girls tournament in Eugene, previously undefeated West Albany was upset by Corvallis, a team that it beat by 20 points two weeks ago. The Spartans won 29-26, advancing to Friday’s semifinal to play Willamette, who beat Milwaukie earlier in the evening.

Mercedes Russell and Springfield beat Lebanon, 71-33, and will play Hermiston on Friday with a berth in the state title game on the line. The Millers are the two-time defending state champions.

Top seed Sutherlin was the other undefeated to go down on Thursday, losing to La Grande in a Class 4A girls semifinal.

On the boys side of the 4A tournament, Philomath’s run came to an end in the semifinals, losing to Cascade.
