The Matchup: No. 3 Fairfax (Los Angeles) will play host to Westchester (Los Angeles) at (8:30 p.m. ET).

Fairfax players to watch: Junior forward Donald Gipson is the Lions’ top scorer, but the Lions have plenty of young talent including: Lindsey Drew, the younger brother of former UCLA point guard Larry Drew II and a junior Arizona commit; forward Foster Dixon, better known as a linebacker prospect; and senior guard Isaiah Ajiboye.

Westchester players to watch: Point guard Ellis Salahuddin is solid, plus the Comets have plenty of depth with 6-8 junior center Keith Fisher, 6-5 forward Evan Council, 6-3 senior guard Jordan Terrell and 5-10 junior guard Terrell Waiters.

What to expect: While Fairfax is 19-0 and Westchester is 13-9, this is historically the best rivalry in the City Section. Westchester won both games against Fairfax last season en route to the City title, so this should be a good test for the unbeaten Lions.
