The Sierra Canyon boys basketball team will compete in three out-of-state fall events this October as the club team California Basketball Club (CBC) starting Oct. 9.

The star-studded roster will travel to Miami to play in The Battle Oct. 9-10, then to Las Vegas to compete in the Border League on Oct. 15-17 before the last stop in Atlanta in the Legends’ Huncho x CBC Invitational hosted by Quavo set for Oct. 22-24.

The event in Las Vegas will be broadcast on ESPN+ and ESPNU.

The team is highlighted by top recruit and UCLA commit Amari Bailey, but he won’t be competing in any of the events due to a left foot injury that is likely to keep him sidelined until the high school regular season begins in mid November.

Sierra Canyon will be the team to beat in the Southern Section once again.

Seniors: Amari Bailey (UCLA), Shy Odom, Ramel Lloyd (Nebraska), Kijani Wright (USC), Jeremiah Nyarko

Jrs: Mike Price, Bronny James, Tim Rudovskiy, Jojo Phillips

Sophs: Isaiah Elohim (5), Malik Rasul

Bronny James, son of Lakers star LeBron James, did not practice this week and is likely to miss this weekend’s trip to Miami. But is hoping to compete in the other two events in Las Vegas and Atlanta.

New transfers Isaiah Elohim (from Heritage Christian), USC commit Kijani Wright (from Windward), Mike Price (from Ribet Academy) and Jeremiah Nyarko (from St. John Bosco) will be on display.

Key returners Ramel Lloyd (Nebraska commit) and Shy Odom will be playing, although Odom has been dealing with a knee injury and will be monitored.

Russian junior Tim Rudovskiy, a 6-foot-8 wing, is expected to have a breakout season after sitting out last year. He’ll be new to floor, but he’s not new to the program.

The Sierra Canyon name most locals aren’t quite familiar with is 6-8 Russian forward Tim Rudovskiy. He sat out all of the spring season. Now he’s a junior. He can shoot, drive and play make.
