Stuck behind a player headed to USC, Trent Perry, and a player headed to Harvard, Robert Hinton, sophomore guard Amir Jones of Harvard-Westlake has been forced to be patient and wait for his opportunity. He got it Tuesday night in an Open Division game against rival Sierra Canyon, and Jones delivered.

He went four for four from three-point range and finished with 13 points off the bench as Harvard-Westlake routed the Trailblazers 72-38 to improve to 2-0 in Pool A and set up a showdown with St. John Bosco on Friday night to decide a finalist for next weekend’s Open Division championship game.

The other finalist has been decided. Eastvale Roosevelt wrapped up Pool B and a spot in the Open Division final with a 64-59 win over St. Pius X-St. Matthias. Brayden Burries scored 21 points for the Mustangs, who clinched first in the pool after JSerra defeated Mater Dei 67-59. Sebastian Rancik had 21 points for JSerra.

Amir Jones contributed four threes and 13 points in Harvard-Westlake's win over Sierra Canyon.

Jones and Christian Horry (14 points) combined to make eight threes. Harvard-Westlake (28-3) was leading 34-19 at halftime, then went on a 17-2 run to start the third quarter to turn the game into a rout. The Wolverines’ defense held Sierra Canyon to a season low in points. Jones’ contributions in the first half when Perry and Hinton weren’t scoring were critical.

“I knew my moment would come,” Jones said of having patience.

Said Harvard-Westlake coach David Rebibo: “He’s a talented young guy. When you play on a real good team, knowing when and how to contribute is a skill. Despite what you encourage, they’re still kids. The moment was there and he rose. I couldn’t be prouder.”
