Wainwright can stroke the 3-pointer and he is learning to play both ends as well.

  LOS ANGELES – A sensational set of championship bracket semifinals are on tap Friday evening during the Trevor Ariza Classic at Westchester High.

  In the first of the semis, at 6:30, the host Comets and the St. Bernard Vikings put their unbeaten records on the line in a showdown of programs from schools located two not blocks apart.

   Each squad is loaded with gifted newcomers, notably 6-foot-3 T.J. Wainwright (pictured/via Santa Monica) of the Comets and 6-4 Reese Dixon-Waters (by way of Dorsey) of the Vikings.

    In the second semi, Etiwanda and Heritage Christian (which, like St. Bernard, are part of the Dec. 26-30 Classic at Damien) hook up at 7:50.

    The 22-point win against Washington Prep Wednesday was the tighten margin of victory for Etiwanda during its 7-0 start.

  Heritage rallied to knock off Bishop Montgomery Tuesday night, 59-54.

   There should be some intriguing individual matchups in that one, coming from the likes of 6-4 junior Jahmai Mashack and seniors Camren Pierce and Tyree Campbell vs., potentially, 6-3 sophomore Skyy Clark, junior Justin Rochelin and sophomore Max Allen of Heritage Christian.

   The championship game is set for 7:30 Saturday night.
