IN A NUTSHELL: Mater Dei Coach Gary McKnight started five reserves and didn’t put his starters in until two minutes remained in the first quarter. But, especially in the second half, the Monarchs showed of their multitude of ways to score – inside and outside – while cruising.
TURNING POINT: Strong efforts by Bol Bol (four dunks and three rebounds) and Spencer Freedman (four assists, a layup and two steals) led to a 24-9 advantage for the Monarchs in the third quarter.
RESPECTIVE STANDOUTS: MD – Spencer Freedman 12 points, eight assists, two steals and just one turnover. VC – Sophomore guard Javon Jones 12 points and four rebounds.
UPDATED RECORDS: Mater Dei 25-1. Village Christian 14-10
UP NEXT: Mater Dei (Saturday, vs. San Diego St. Augustine). Village Christian (Saturday, at Whittier Christian)
