GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Cameron Boozer, the nation's top boys basketball player in the class of 2025, wasted no time making his mark on Saturday night.

Playing in the semifinal round of the Section 7 basketball tournament in Arizona, Boozer and the Explorers cruised past Corona Centennial, 81-51. Columbus, who beat Park Center (MN) earlier in the day, win their third straight game by 30 points or more.

With dozens of Division 1 coaches watching court side including North Carolina, Kansas, Arizona, Florida and UCLA, Boozer showcased his skillset that has made him one of the nation's most coveted players.

The Explorers also got big performances from Boozer's twin brother Cayden, Benn Fragela and wing Malik Abdullahi who was on the receiving end of multiple alley-oops.

Columbus will take on the reigning California Open Division State champions in Harvard-Westlake in Sunday's championship game.
