Francisco’s Finest: Mater Dei vs Cathedral Catholic (Part 1)

SANTA ANA, Ca—The Mater Dei Monarchs hobbled into their game with San Diego powerhouse Cathedral Catholic and held on for a dicey 63-60 victory.

Joel’s Take: The Monarchs needed an influential performance from Hornery, and they got one as he scored from all three levels. He knocked in deep 3s, posted up for some impressive finishes, and nailed some difficult mid-range shots. Defensively, he did a nice job stripping the ball from post players Wilhite and Anyanwu deep on the block.

Joel’s Take: Wilhite, who is planning on walking on at Kansas in the fall, put together a solid all-around
