SCV Hoops Finale All-Star prep basketball game set for March 29 at West Ranch High School.

We are less than a week away from the fifth annual SCV Hoops Finale and things are starting to shape up for the event, which is a benefit for special needs students in the William S. Hart Union High School District through its WiSH Education Foundation.

The senior basketball All-Star Games will be played for the first time at West Ranch High School this Saturday. The girls game is at 5 p.m. and the boys game will be played at 7 p.m. Tickets will be sold at the door at West Ranch on Saturday beginning at 4:30 p.m. and all proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the WiSH Foundation.

On top of that, there will be a mini-Food Truck Festival, which will be in the West Ranch High parking lot and begins at 4 p.m.

There is already some intrigue to both games because of rivalries.

The girls game will feature the Foothill League’s co-Players of the Year Sandra Ikeora and Kali Vittallo.

Ikeora has requested to play against Canyon players, as the two teams split the Foothill League title during the regular season.

Chuck Johns, who resigned from Canyon because his family might have to relocate, will be the head coach on one side of the girls game, and this will mark his final Santa Clarita Valley game.

The coach on the other side will be West Ranch’s own Allison Moore, who just completed her first season as Wildcats head coach.

Vittallo and West Ranch star guard Whitney Branham are two marquee names in the 3-point contest at halftime of the girls game.

Halftime of the boys game will feature the slam dunk contest and Hart guard and Foothill Player of the Year Lewis Stallworth has been talking up how badly he wants to win it.

He’ll have a lot of competition.

The boys game will be coached by Trinity Classical Academy head coach John Brooks, whose team won the CIF-Southern Section Division VI championship, and Santa Clarita Christian’s James Mosley, whose team was a CIF-SS Division VA finalist. For each coach, this is their second SCV Hoops Finale.
