While some of you may have been asleep, Sierra Canyon and Mater Dei faced off at 11:30 PM EST for the CIF Southern Section Open Division Title on Friday night.

Of course, this is notable because Kentucky Wildcats signees BJ Boston and Devin Askew faced off against each other on one of the biggest stages in California high school basketball.

BJ Boston would post his usual stat-filled line of 16 points and nine rebounds, while Devin Askew put up 15 points for the Mater Dei side.

Sierra Canyon, who is ranked 16th in the country, never trailed in the game, and would eventually pull away to win 59-48 and take their second straight division title and.

Boston has skyrocketed up the recruiting charts due to his breakout season playing on the most star-studded high school team in the land. When he committed to Kentucky, Boston was as low as 16th in the country, now he is up to as high as 6th in the country, right alongside fellow Kentucky signee Terrence Clarke.

Boston is also a finalist for the Naismith Player of the Year trophy in high school. Boston averaged 20 PPG in the regular season for Sierra Canyon.

Askew, as you know, made the jump from the class of 2021 to the class 0f 2020 to join Kentucky’s already stacked class. Askew finished his regular season putting up 16.5 PPG and 6.5 APG for Mater Dei.
