The Matchup: No. 21 Corona del Sol (Tempe, Ariz.) will play host to Desert Vista (Phoenix) at (10 p.m. ET).

Corona del Sol players to watch: Freshman big man Marvin Bagley III has had a big impact and had a career-high 33 points in a game last week and may be the top 2018 player in the country. The Aztecs can also rely on sophomore point guard Alex Barcello and senior forward Dane Kuiper, who has signed with New Mexico.

Desert Vista players to watch: Senior 6-7 forward Brandon Clarke, who has signed with San Jose State, is a top scorer, along with junior guard Tarik Cool and senior guard Quincy Taylor.

What to expect: A great game involving the top two teams in the state. Both are 20-1 with their only loss coming to an out-of-state team. Corona del Sol’s only blemish is a 65-64 defeat at the hands of No. 11 Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth). Desert Vista’s only loss was 52-51 to Loyola Academy (Wilmette, Ill.). Corona del Sol had its hands full last season with Desert Vista, winning 57-50.
