PREP NOTES : Bishop Amat Shoots Down Mater Dei's New Defense

February 06, 1992|CHRIS FOSTER

With Mater Dei well ahead of Bishop Amat during a recent basketball game, Monarch assistant Dave Taylor decided to try out a new defense.

Taylor, the team's defensive coach, put the Monarchs in a trapping zone. The first time down, the Lancers' Jelani Gardner drove the baseline and hit a three-point field goal.

This did not please Mater Dei head Coach Gary McKnight, who turned to Taylor and said: "What's that defense?"

Said Taylor: "I just want to see it."

McKnight smiled and said: "To see what? How many three-pointers Gardner can make?"

The next time down, Bishop Amat guard Rashid Strode drove the baseline against the trap and hit a jump shot.

Taylor stood up and said. "OK, guys, next time down we're back to man to man."
