Winter is here, and with winter comes a new season of Mater Dei Catholic Basketball. Coach Jason Bryant is entering his second year has Varsity Head Coach. When asked about his expectations, Coach Bryant said, “We expect to win the Metro League and to compete for a CIF Championship.” The Crusaders finished the 18-19 season 17-12 (8-2 League) and made it to the quarterfinals in the Division 1 playoffs. On the court the Crusaders are expecting big things from Seniors Maximus Lane a 6’10 Center and Adrian Calderon a 6’0 Guard, along with Juniors Jessie Campbell a 6’1 Point Guard, Kailon King a 6’0 Junior Guard and Christian Ubochi a 6’9 Junior Power Forward.
