Francisco’s Finest: Mater Dei vs Santa Margarita (Part 2)

SANTA ANA, Ca—In a much-anticipated Trinity League match-up, Mater Dei would use a stingy defense to methodically put away a resilient Santa Margarita 51-38. The Monarchs relied on their imposing frontcourt of seniors Wilhelm Breidenbach Wilhelm Breidenbach 6'8" | PF Mater Dei | 2021 State #91 Nation , Harrison Hornery Harrison Hornery 6'9" | PF Mater Dei | 2021 State #168 Nation , and Nick Davidson to pound the Eagles in the paint area on a consistent basis. The Nevada-bound Davidson would lead the Monarchs with 17-points while Hornery chipped in with 14-points. Unsigned senior Luke Turner Luke Turner 6'8" | SG Santa Margarita Catholic High School | 2021 State would lead the Eagles with 13-points. 

Jack McCloskey Jack McCloskey 6'3" | CG Santa Margarita | 2022 State (Santa Margarita)

2022, SG, 6-foot-4, 165 pounds

Joel’s Take: A potential late-bloomer in the class of 2022 would be McCloskey. He has a nice frame with good length and he’s a bouncy athlete—as exhibited by his two-hand flush in the paint. He gets good lift on his shot, but the Monarchs didn’t give him much room. Improving his 1st step and strength to play through contact will improve his all-around game.
