Photos: See 75 amazing images of Sierra Canyon's 70-57 win over Etiwanda in Southern Section Open girls final

The headliner Juju Watkins did her part with a game-high 24 points, but so did the Trailblazers and Eagles as a whole: The national showdown did not disappoint

The nation's No. 1 team Sierra Canyon and 10th-ranked Etiwanda battled for the Southern Section's Open Division title Saturday at the Honda Center in Anaheim. 

It was picked as our top game of the day going in, surpassing even the boys Open title between national No. 6 Corona Centennial and St. John Bosco

And though it didn't match the excitement or finish of the boys game — Corona Centennial won it on a last-season steal and dunk at the buzzer — the skill set and intensity of Sierra Canyon's 70-57 win just priory did not disappoint.

The headliner, the nation's No. 1 recruit Juju Watkins, led all scorers with 24 points to go with 11 rebounds and six blocks. But she had loads of help from Izela Arena (19 points) and Mackenly Randolph (17 points, 11 rebounds), whose fathers played in the NBA. 

Both dads were courtside. 

They were among the many images captured by Nike Koza, who offered up all the intensity and strong play with the fabulous photos below.
