Legends of the game. This phrase comes to mind when we think of legendary coach Gary McKnight and his run at Mater Dei. 35 years at the helm…Good Lord! The Monarchs seem poised again this year to make a statement that last season was just a fluke. During the 2016 Fairfax Nike Summer Tourney, we sat down with Coach McKnight who spoke about summer ball, players of the past, and this years team. The team looks locked and loaded and will be a top 25 team – in the nation – when it’s all said and done.
Not a lot of mention about MJ Cage and his signing with Oregon. PopScout thinks he’s a sleeper and will put in work for the Ducks. Here’s some footage of the forward when he ran for Cal Supreme at Big Foot Hoops 2013. PopScout been on the grind for quite some time ya dig.
Take a look as we sit down and interview Coach McKnight, as he gives us some thoughts on Mater Dei basketball. BTW, Mater Dei went on to beat Chino Hills after this interview and took the 2016 Nike 30th Annual Fairfax Summer Classic Tourney title a few days later. Turn up!
Become great at what you do.
