Oregon sports history

Dec. 26, 1996

The Les Schwab Oregon Holiday Invitational — a new prep boys basketball tournament — begins with 16 teams playing in three locations: South Salem, Beaverton and Westview high schools.

The semifinals and finals then will be at Chiles Center. Beaverton, coached by tourney co-founder Nick Robertson, wins the inaugural event, topping McNary in the championship game.
