Boys and Girls Hoops

Charisma Osborne
Look for 5 Star JR PG Charisma Osborne to have her high beams on tonight, looking for passing lanes and a way to lead her team to victory. Popscout

Girls Hoops
Windward vs Sierra Canyon
Sierra Canyon High 530p

Two of the three top teams in Socal, on the girls side of the CA HS Hoops arena, square off for bragging rights and CIF positioning for Open Division Seeding.  It should go down to the wire, allowing coaches to draw something up, playing a game of chess on the hardwood floor, in hopes of check- mating their opponent.  The X factor will and always will be Charisma Osborne of Windward.  We’ve seen a lot of basketball family but never have we seen someone as special as Charisma.  If it comes down to the wire, rest assured this young lady will have her backpack on, allowing her team to comfortably jump on her back to victory.  Don’t sleep on TCU commit Ryann Payne, who could also enter the zone at any given time, giving us a Twilight Zone ending, no one expected but her.

The Pick:

Boys Hoops


Sierra Canyon vs Windward 7pm
The boys square off in the 2nd game of a double header on the campus on Sierra Canyon.  Windward has UCLA commit Jules Bernard and a few other key pieces capable of turning up.  It will be a daunting task to say the least, considering Sierra Canyon is at full strength and enough big name players on their team to fill an A list.  Expect an up and down high flying contest with Juniors Cassius Stanley and Kenyon Martin Jr. showing up and out, with D Wash and Lil Scotty pushing the rock providing the dimes needed for them to cash in. Should give us a chance to see how Sierra Canyon is dealing with chemistry issues since their overtime defeat against Las Vegas Bishop Gorman Jan, 15, 2018 (82-80 OT).

The Pick:
Sierra Canyon
