Francisco’s Finest: Sierra Canyon vs Beverly Hills (Part 1)

CHATSWORTH, Ca—Despite a resilient effort by Beverly Hills, Sierra Canyon had too much firepower as the Trailblazers cruised to an 89-69 victory. The Normans cut the lead to 9-points, due to their relentless press, but Sierra Canyon’s super junior, Amari Bailey Amari Bailey 6'4" | PG Sierra Canyon | 2022 State #4 Nation , would have none of that as he blazed to an impressive 38-point scoring output.

Joel’s Take: Bailey is the No. 1 player in Southern California, regardless of class. With Peyton Watson Peyton Watson 6'7" | SF Long Beach Poly | 2021 State #11 Nation ’s decision to not finish out his senior campaign with the Long Beach Poly Jackrabbits, Bailey could cement that label by delivering that coveted CIFSS Open Division  Championship. Bailey checks off every box when it comes to impacting a basketball game and he does it with a relentless motor at both ends of the floor. He rebounds exceptionally for a guard, is a high-level passer, and his bounce/burst is off the charts. His jump shot needs to get more consistent, but he projects well as a Russell Westbrook type going forward.
