The signs are everywhere that 6-foot-1 freshman Mackenly Randolph of Chatsworth Sierra Canyon has quite a future playing basketball.
“The best to ever play in the Valley. Guarantee,” Sierra Canyon girls’ basketball coach Alicia Komaki said Monday after Randolph scored 35 points in a 68-45 win over City Section power Palisades. “She’s just so good.”
Randolph is the daughter of former NBA player Zach Randolph, whose highest point total was 43 points. Asked if dad’s family record is in jeopardy, Mackenly said, “Yes.”
Sierra Canyon improved to 15-3 but might be without its other top freshman, Izela Arenas, for the playoffs because of a foot injury. Demoni Lagway had 16 points for Palisades (6-6), which has a big game on Friday against Western League rival Hamilton.
