The coaches at Chatsworth Sierra Canyon can't say enough good things about 6-foot-4 eighth-grader Cassius Stanley. "He's the best eighth-grade athlete I've seen," football Coach Jon Ellinghouse said. Stanley is considered a top basketball player, but he also plays football and baseball. The big question is whether he'll stay at Sierra Canyon for his freshman year or enroll at another high school. He's in Sacramento cheering on the girls' basketball team to an expected Division IV state title.

Aaron Holiday, a junior guard at North Hollywood Campbell Hall who's the younger brother of former UCLA and NBA guard Jrue Holiday, has committed to UCLA, his mother, Toya, said Monday. Holiday averaged more than 30 points a game this season for the Vikings, who lost in the Southern Section Division 4A semifinals last week. In his last three playoff games, Holiday scored 36, 39 and 42 points. His sister, Lauren, plays for UCLA's women's team. His commitment is a triumph for new Coach Steve Alford, who had to re-recruit the family after Jrue's experience under former Coach Ben Howland.

Monday is freedom day for winter transfer athletes who have been sitting out the past month of the season, and there's going to be some big-time impact players in basketball. Brayden Lenius, who moved to West Hills Chaminade from Canada, becomes eligible. He already showed the type of athlete he is in football, emerging as a college prospect at receiver in helping the Eagles win the CIF state championship Division II bowl game. He can jump and dunk with the best, and adding athleticism to the Eagles lineup will only help a team that has four transfer students on its roster.

Since he started playing basketball in Brazil when he was 9, 6-foot-10 Lucas Siewert remembers being enthralled with the three-point shot. "When I first started playing, I'd always go to the third-point line," he said. The sophomore at L.A. Cathedral sure learned his lessons well. He made five three-pointers on Wednesday to help the Phantoms improve to 18-2 and virtually lock up the Camino Real League title with a 71-50 home win over Cantwell-Sacred Heart. He finished with 15 points.
