Ribet Academy and Sierra Canyon square off today at 4pm, on the beautiful campus of Serra Canyon in the city of Chatsworth, CA. Ribet Academy comes in as hot as a bottle of Tabasco Sauce. Sitting pretty with a record of 13-0 with wins over Alemany last night (60-53) and a stout All Star Team from Australia (55-44 played 12/9/17), during the Burroughs Varsity Girls Tourney. Maxpreps has the Fighting Frogs slated as the #13 team in the State of CA. Even without 6’9 Andrea Aquino – their top transfer, who’s signed with Oregon State and continues to sit until January 2018, the Fighting Frogs have looked impressive indeed.
Sierra Canyon is missing a few pieces of its own and will need to solidify board-work, in order for them to have any chance tonight against Ribet Academy. Sierra Canyon struggled mightily, keeping Granada Hills Charter off the glass during their 55-54 victory December 7, 2017. If Sierra Canyon hasn’t taken a good look at film and shored up rebounding responsibilities as a whole, it could be a long night for the Trailblazers, contending with so many second chance points, considering Ribet Academy is very stout on the inside with 6-2, Sr. Janette Mensah, 6-3 Sr. Lola Pendande and 6-0, So. F Rosemary Odunbunmi. A formidable front line for any CIF-SS squad.
The X factor will be whether or not Ryann Payne can be special enough to take Sierra Canyon to the finish line and bring home the W. If you haven’t had a chance to see this young lady ball out – she’s punched her ticket to TCU, then you’re in for a treat. Ryann just might be special enough, enter the zone, and catapult her team to victory. Come take in this 4pm barn-burner before you head out to the later games.
