LeBron James was in attendance Saturday night at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, to watch his son’s undefeated Sierra Canyon team face off against his alma mater, St. Vincent-St. Mary. The Irish led Sierra Canyon for much of the second half, but Bronny James played his best game of the season and made a crucial play late in the game to give the Trailblazers the lead late in the fourth quarter.
With 55.6 seconds remaining in the game and Sierra Canyon trailing, 56-55, Bronny James deflected and stole an inbounds pass near midcourt, and scored the go-ahead bucket in transition.

The Irish seemed to tie the game on the other end at the free-throw line, but a lane violation wiped away a free-throw and preserved Sierra Canyon’s lead. The Trailblazers held on to win 59-56.
James scored 15 points off the bench and was 7-of-10 from the field.
