IN A NUTSHELL: The immense – and then some – size and skill of Bol Bol made their presence felt early and the Saints never were able to do much to combat it.
TURNING POINT: Led by Taeshon Cherry’s remarkable jump shooting (he hit eight shots in a row from the second to fourth quarters), the Saints got to within six points with about two minutes to go before the Monarchs pulled away.
RESPECTIVE STANDOUTS: MD – Bol Bol 26 points, 10 rebounds and five blocked shots. SA – Taeshon Cherry 24 points and six rebounds.
UPDATED RECORDS: Mater Dei 26-1. St. Augustine 21-4.
UP NEXT: Mater Dei (Tuesday, vs. Santa Margarita). St. Augustine (Tuesday, vs. Kearny)
