Chicago – After traveling over 2,000 miles from Santa Ana, California to Chicago West Side…. the West coast powerhouse displayed why they are nationally ranked as they defeated Marian Catholic 58-46.

The Monarchs were led by senior center M.J. Cage, an Oregon-recruit, who had 15 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, plenty of dunks and a smothering defensive presence. He is also the son of 15-year former NBA player Michael Cage.

Marian Catholic trailed 18-16 early in the second quarter before Mater Dei’s “pressed” which slowed the Spartans’ momentum and forced four straight turnovers and eight over Marian Catholic’s next 10 possessions to spark a 19-0 surge to seize a 37-19 lead and never looked back.

The Spartans were led by Austin Richie who knocked down 11 points, followed by teammate Taihr Smith, who added nine.

The Monarchs came in, handled their business and are headed back to the West Coast on Sunday.

“Is everyone else playing just one game too?” Mater Dei senior center M.J. Cage wondered.

Proviso West Holiday Tournament

PWHoops-2014

Proviso West Holiday Tournament is always one of the premier high school basketball events in the Chicagoland area, and this year, they slimmed back down from 32 teams to 18.

The field of 18 teams in the 54th annual tournament is still extremely strong, though two-time defending 3A champ Morgan Park is no longer at Proviso West. Coach Nick Irvin’s Mustangs lost in the championship game of the Proviso West Holiday Tournament last year and decided to move on to something new.

On the other hand, Stevenson, led by Player of the Year favorite Jalen Brunson, will be the headliner as the returning champ, while several other teams that will certainly be ranked when the season tips off in November include St. Joseph, St. Rita, Kenwood and Rockford Auburn.

In addition to the host school, Proviso West, the tournament field also includes Fenwick, Morton, Proviso East, Uplift, Maine South, Hinsdale Central, Providence St. Mel, St. Viator, New Trier, Homewood-Flossmoor, Hillcrest and Brooks.

The tournament will tip off with two games on Dec. 20, followed by eight games on Dec. 22 and nine games on Dec. 23. The tournament will continue Dec. 26 and conclude Dec. 27 with consolation championship, third-place and championship games.
