BJ Boston dropped 24 points and 10 rebounds as Sierra Canyon School defeated Duncanville High School 66-63 at Sandra Meadows Memorial Arena in Duncanville, Texas, on Saturday.
The matchup was part of a Duncanville-hosted showcase called Thanksgiving Hoopfest, which brought some of the best high school basketball talent to Texas during the holiday weekend.
Harold Yu added a 12-point, 10-rebound double-double, and Amari Bailey scored 12 points. Bailey hit one of the biggest shots of the game, a runner to give Sierra Canyon a late 63-59 edge.
Sierra Canyon led 33-25 at halftime and 52-43 entering the final quarter, but Duncanville mounted a comeback and came within one possession of the lead. However, Sierra Canyon held on down the stretch and withstood a desperation three for the tie:
