NO. 16 MATER DEI
Location: Santa Ana, California
Preseason Rank: 16
2018-19 record: 29-5
Final 2018-19 Super 25 ranking: Not Ranked
Returning all five starters and the first two players off the bench, Mater Dei is poised to make another run for the state championship. Last season, the Monarchs fell to Sierra Canyon in the semifinals, but they have experience together and star talent. Point guard Devin Askew is a Chosen 25 Kentucky commit and Wilhelm Breidenbach was a double-double machine.
Harrison Hornery has offers from Pac-12 schools including Cal, USC and Arizona and two players are committed to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Additionally, incoming transfer Casey Jones put up more than 20 points per game for Eastlake (Sammamish, Washington) last season. Mater Dei looks to be deep.
