: : The returning class of juniors and seniors leaves a lot to be desired.
: How dare you bash the whole Mater Dei team. That's a inappropriate blanket statement. Coach Neil and his other four screennames are you going to bash you for bashing kids. Shame on you!! Just SHAME!!!!
First of all, why would you bash someone who, unlike all of us, uses his real name? Give the guy some credit for posting his beliefs and standing behind him.
Quick look at Mater Dei returners:
Torbert - shes's a beast. Plain and simple. Hopefully she comes back from her leg injury and is 100%.
Johnson - always has been sort of a one-trick pony...drive to hoop. Has been hurt off and on all three years. Still better than most, but not up to classic Mater Dei standards.
Rahon - when she is on, she is an ELITE shooter. She is like the flashing star on the video game when she is hot. But when she isn't, she can be exposed. Not really fast, not a great defender, not a great rebounder. But I will take her any day for when the hot streak comes.
Freeman - committed to CSUN. She is a solid player, but never thought of her as a point guard. Again, better than most, but not the "MD standard".
Rogers - nice 6-1 player that is good to bring off bench.
As for the sophomores, don't really know them.
In the end, Mater Dei is a victim of their own success. If they don't win Open, they suck. They don't have POY, they suck.
Bottom line is they have a roster that 95% of high school coaches would gladly switch with. Including probably yours.
Barring transfers that may or may not come, Mater Dei will be either good or really good. But short of 35-0, they can't please you people.
