Two of the nation’s top girls basketball players will square off Saturday in the California state championship when Chaminade face Miramonte in Sacramento.
But the showdown almost didn’t happen.
Duke-bound Leonna Odom hit a game-winning three at the buzzer to lift Chaminade over Long Beach Poly in the Open Division Southern California Regional girls final last weekend.
Awaiting the Eagles will be Miramonte, led by the top uncommitted player in the country, Sabrina Ionescu. Miramonte took down Pinewood 73-40 to win the Northern California Regional girls final.
