LeBron James was in attendance to watch his son, Bronny James, hit the go-ahead shot for his team, the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers. The Trailblazers defeated LeBron’s alma mater St. Vincent-St. Mary Irish by a final of 59-56 on Saturday.

LeBron is St. Vincent-St. Mary’s most notable alum, having led them to three state titles in four years.

Sitting courtside of Nationwide Arena in Ohio, LeBron cheered on his son as he and Sierra Canyon go 8-0.

It was understood that Bronny would have gone to St. Vincent-St. Mary’s had LeBron stayed in Ohio. Now, Bronny sits on the same team as Dwayne Wade‘s son as they chase a title.
