Brayden Burries dominates The Throne to lead The Vale to championship

Against some of the top competition in the nation, Roosevelt High School (Eastvale, Calif.) junior Brayden Burries proved why he’s a five-star recruit against some of the other top players in the class of 2025.

Burries led the Vale, Roosevelt’s team, to a championship in The Throne, a tournament between 16 teams. Eleven of the teams are ranked in the Super 25 national rankings and three have been ranked previously this season, making it a who’s-who of boys basketball.

The who’s-who is Burries, who recorded 34 points and 10 rebounds in the semifinals and then hit the game-winning and-one floater over the No. 3 team in the country, Columbus, in the waning seconds of the championship game:

He also hit a contested layup in the final minutes of semifinals, vitally important to clinching this game.

In doing so, he and Roosevelt showed they could match up with an elite unit at Columbus led by the Boozer twins, Cameron and Cayden. Ranked the No. 2 and No. 14, respectively, players in 247Sports’ 2025 composite rankings class of 2025, Burries’ success indicates his ranking at No. 12 may be too low despite the five-star mark.

Listed at 6-foot-4 and 200 pounds, Burries won MVP with averages of 27 points and eight rebounds in the tournament. In addition to his elite finals and semifinals outings, he recorded a 26-point, 10-rebound double-double in the quarterfinals. He drove and finished with poise and agility, as shown above and in this high-arching finish:

Roosevelt went 31-4 during its season, which put them at No. 19 in the Super 25 entering the week.  After losing to No. 5 Harvard-Westlake twice in the playoffs, this tournament ties a bow on an extremely impressive season, one in which the Mustangs were undoubtedly among the best in the nation.

At The Throne, they proved it.
