The “rematch”, of sorts, should showcase some terrific head-up battles Friday night during the CIF Southern Section Open Division playoff game pitting Mater Dei and host Sierra Canyon in Chatsworth.
The programs met in the Open championship games last March 3, with the Spencer Freedman-led Mater Dei Monarchs prevailing, 56-53.
Freedman and three other starters from that Gary McKnight-coached squad are in college, with only 6-foot-8 sophomore Wilhelm Breidenbach the only starter from that team still on hand for the Friday night (7:30) clash.
