Mater Dei 71, Whitney Young 58

I’ve been hoovering on the SoCal hoops board for the last 20 minutes, when the Mater Dei-Whitney Young matchup at the Nike Extravaganza would have been over. Three minutes ago someone posted that Mater Dei prevailed, 71-58. No surprises there, but too bad it wasn’t a close game.

Story with video.

This was Young’s first loss of the season. They’re now 22-1.

Too bad neither the Young or Mater Dei coaches feel the need to post stats for their players on maxpreps. That’s my biggest pet peeve with high school coaches. Not putting up your player’s stats is unconscionable.

Tomorrow, Young travels to Long Beach Poly for a 6:30 showdown.
