Sierra Canyon has a
roster full of players that will be producing highlights at the rim in each
game this season. In Friday’s game the Trailblazers were missing stars Zaire
Wade (undisclosed injury) and Ziaire Williams (transfer sit out period).

“Teams aren’t gonna
like us,” sophomore guard Amari Bailey said. “Teams across the country we know
they aren’t gonna like us.”

It was up to BJ
Boston, Amari Bailey, and even freshman Bronny James to provide the highlights.

“If we stay poised,
I don’t think anyone can beat us,” Bailey said.

James caught a pass
in the 3rd quarter, drove the lane and threw down his first high
school dunk which got the entire crowd on their feet.

Molding a new group:

Sierra Canyon added many new faces to the program this season but hasn’t shown a lack of continuity through two games.

“We’ve all been
playing together since the fall and in China, so it’s been good,” senior Terren
Frank said after the game.

“We played rocky in the first game, but I feel like we’ve found our identity,” Bailey added. “Just having everyone buy in early, that’s about it.”
