I will give you a more in-depth story in Tuesday's Citizen, but here are the key facts in the Monarch's win:
- Katin Reinhart, 30 points (he'll be shooting lights out for UNLV next year) Sheldon had no answer for him. Dakarai Allen did his best to guard him.
- Total fouls = Sheldon 25, Mater Dei 13
- Starters that fouled out= Sheldon four (Allen, Iese, Thomas, Manning), Mater Dei one (Xavier Johnson)
- Field Goal Shooting= Sheldon 18-of-57 (31.6%) Mater Dei 24-of-54 (44%)
On a positive note, expect Sheldon to return here next year. Only Kyi Thomas and Nate Iese graduate. They'll have to find a beast rebounder like Iese (who had 12 boards Saturday), but the rest of the Huskies will be back.
Here's the podcast of head coach Joey Rollings' post-game interviews:
Also, in the words of Joe Davidson tonight: The referees should be forced by CIF to watch the televised tape-delay broadcast of the game to see the lousy job they did.
Score by Quarters:
Mater Dei 21 12 12 21 - 66
Sheldon 18 9 11 10 - 48
