Bronny James played the role of hero for Sierra Canyon High School in Columbus, Ohio, on Saturday against his father’s alma mater, St. Vincent-St. Mary.

Ranked No. 8 in the country by USA Today, Sierra Canyon ran its record to 8-0 in a thriller with a 59-56 win over the Fighting Irish.

LeBron James Jr. stole an inbounds pass with 39 seconds remaining and took the ball from half court to the basket for the go-ahead layup. The 15-year-old freshman finished with a career-high 15 points in the win.

This game had the feeling of a high-level college game even before tipoff thanks to the presence of LeBron James, who was able to support his son since the Los Angeles Lakers had an off day.
