Dos Pueblos, San Marcos Get Their Shots at Powerhouse Mater Dei

If there’s such a thing as a next level in high school basketball, Mater Dei would be the model program.

The Monarchs are one of the elite programs in the country, producing major college talent and contending for CIF top division championships on a regular basis.

Local basketball fans will have two opportunities to see Mater Dei this holiday weekend as the Monarchs come to town to play at Dos Pueblos on Friday night at 7 and at San Marcos on Saturday at 5 p.m.

The Monarchs graduated their top four scorers from last year’s CIF-SS Open Division championship team. But they’ve reloaded with a talented group of underclassmen, led by 6-9 sophomores Wilhelm Breidenbach and Harrison Hornery and 6-3 sophomore guard Devin Askew.

Mater Dei won its season opener over El Toro, 94-28. Breidenbach scored 23 points and grabbed 17 rebounds, Askew had 13 points six assists, and 6-4 junior Aidan Prukop had 15 points and five assists.

Dos Pueblos has previously hosted Mater Dei for an early season game. The Chargers enter the game with an 0-2 record.

The Monarchs will be the first game for San Marcos under new coach Jelani Hicks.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
