The Matchup: No. 6 Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, Calif.) will host Viewpoint (Calabasas, Calif.) at 4 p.m. ET.

Sierra Canyon player(s) to watch: Cody Riley is a manchild for the Trailblazers scoring in a variety of different ways. At 6-foot-7, Riley, who is ranked No. 29 overall in the ESPN 60, can overpower the opposition on the wing and he’s too versatile for traditional bigs in the paint. Riley has been dominant all season and while the Trailblazers await word on whether No. 1 sophomore Marvin Bagley III will be cleared to play, Riley gives them their best chance to win night in and night out.

Viewpoint player(s) to watch: Christian Juzang, a Harvard commit, is a sniper for the Patriots with the ability to put up big numbers. Also, Kody Knox is a talented guard who can fill it up from the perimeter and Sayo Denloye has been clutch for the Patriots all season.

What to expect: This is the Trailblazers’ last regular season game; next is the playoffs so they’ll likely come out looking to close things out strong. Riley, as always, will prove to be a matchup problem for the Patriots. Still, if the Patriots are able to get Juzang and Denloye rolling early they have the firepower from the perimeter to keep things interesting.
