No. 2 Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, Va.) and No. 7 Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, Calif.) will face off in the Bass Pro Tournament of Champions final on Saturday night in Springfield, Mo.

They will then see each other again at the Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass., on Monday, although not against each other. Oak Hill plays Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.) at 1 p.m. ET and then Sierra Canyon plays Montverde Academy (Fla.) at 3.

The winner in Missouri on Saturday will be attempting to pull off the rare Springfield-Springfield double and Oak Hill will be attempting to do it in consecutive years.

The defending Bass Pro TOC champions advanced with an 83-62 victory against Rainier Beach (Wash.) on Friday night. Devontae Shuler led Oak Hill with 15 points. Five Warriors players reached double figures in scoring.

Rainier Beach went through a scoring drought of 5:08 in the second quarter and committed four turnovers along the way. Arizona State commit Sam Cunliffe broke up the dry spell with a midrange jumper on the way to scoring 16 points in the first half on the way to 28 in the game.

Sierra Canyon advanced with a 66-58 victory against No. 14 Chaminade College Prep (St. Louis).

Nevada-bound guard Devearl Ramsey had 18 for Sierra Canyon. Remy Martin added 17 and Cody Riley and Adam Seiko each had 13.

Jayson Tatum, the Duke-bound star who is ranked No. 2 overall in the Class of 2016 by ESPN, had 20 and Tyler Cook added 19.

Chaminade, the No. 1-ranked Class 5 team in the Missouri Basketball Coaches Association poll, will play in the third-place game against Rainier Beach.

In other games in at the Bass Pro TOC:

Jose Alvarado scored 28 points and Jared Rivers added 21 to lead Christ The King (Middle Village, N.Y.) to a 72-60 victory against Kickapoo (Springfield, Mo.). Alvarado’s list of colleges offering basketball scholarships includes Indiana, Georgia Tech, St. John’s and Miami, Florida

Christ the King won the first-ever Bass Pro Tournament of Champions in 1985. The Royals’ last Tournament of Champions title came in 2008. Christ the King has appeared in 16 Tournaments of Champions.

Jared Ridder had 24 for Kickapoo.

In the other consolation semifinal, Gonzaga signee Zach Collins posted his second double-double of the 2016 Tournament of Champions. The 6-foot-11 Collins scored 32 points and had 12 rebounds for Bishop Gorman in a 77-62 win against Bolivar (Mo.).

Christ the King advances to the fifth-place game against Bishop Gorman and Kickapoo will play Bolivar for seventh place.
