After a three-week hiatus due to COVID quarantining, La Costa Canyon returned to the floor in an emotionally charged game against Sage Creek. For both teams and their respective communities, the game meant more than the score: each school community was mourning the loss of student athlete who had died during the pandemic. 

In the end, however, the Mavericks emerged with a 78-68 win, breaking open a close game with a 10-0 run in the second quarter and a larger run in the third quarter, before the Bobcats pared the lead down during garbage time. 

Here’s a breakdown of the players who stood out.

LCC vs Sage Creek: 10 Best 

Best player 

Brendan Perry, 6-5 2021 G, La Costa Canyon

Perry was almost singlehandedly responsible for the 10-0 run that shifted the game back to the Mavericks. The wiry combo scored 10 points in the last three minutes of the second quarter to help LCC open up a 7-point lead. Perry, who recently committed to Point Loma Nazarene University, was able to attack the basket and finish through contact, knock down open threes and create drive-and-kick opportunities for LCC’s bevy of shooters.
