In a battle of national basketball powers, Westchester was up to the task. Westchester pulled out an impressive 52-47 victory over Oak Hill Academy of Virginia on Wednesday in the final of the Les Schwab Tournament in Portland. Oak Hill Academy opened the season ranked No. 3 nationally in the ESPNRise Fab 50 while Westchester was No. 6, but Westchester was coming off a disappointing sixth-place finish in the City of Palms Classic in Florida.
