It was an epic battle last night, matching up #6 Windward at #12 Mater Dei. But in the end, Windward came out on top when a last-second Mater Dei shot attempt fell short.
IM in OC was on hand, along with several NCAA Division I coaches. He said Mater Dei Coach Kevin Kiernan read the riot act to his team in the first quarter, after Windward went up 11-2. They stepped it up after that.
I love it when a big game lives up to its hype. Hopefully next time they’ll have it was before 9 p.m.
