BJ Boston led Sierra Canyon with 25 points in an 87-35 victory over Granada Hills Charter on Tuesday in Chatsworth, California.

Sierra Canyon played its first home game of the year after three matchups in the San Diego Tip-Off Challenge and one in the Thanksgiving Hoopfest (Duncanville, Texas).

Terren Frank added 17 points for the 5-0 Trailblazers, who are ranked third in MaxPreps' boys high school basketball rankings.

Boston, who is Sierra Canyon's leading scorer, was excellent once again with 17 points and five rebounds at the half, per Tarek Fattal of the Los Angeles Daily News.

Frank scored 13 of his 17 in the first two quarters, including this dunk:
