Kyle Wiltjer

returned to the lineup with a game-high 21 points, helping the top-seeded Crusaders (22-2) cruise to an easy home win over the visiting Eagles (8-18) of Gresham in the opening round of the Class 6A playoffs. Wiltjer, a 6-foot-9 senior forward headed to Kentucky, missed the previous four weeks with an ankle injury, but he’s back to try to lead the Crusaders to their third consecutive state title. If they pull it off, they’ll become the first team in state history with three big-school titles in a row.
