It had everything that accompanies a state playoff game in March. Big crowd. Wracked nerves. Great programs. The only thing lacking in Saturday's showdown between top-ranked Mater Dei and fourth-ranked Brea Olinda was the shooting that typically accompanies both teams. Instead, Mater Dei won an ugly 53-45 nonleague girls' basketball game in front of about 2,500. For the Monarchs (16-2), it was a night of coming around--as in, what goes around comes around.

There shouldn't be any need to ask The Question to Pepperdine women's basketball Coach Mark Trakh anymore. Not after his Waves knocked off fifth-ranked Florida at Firestone Fieldhouse on Saturday.

When it did, the team let out a rousing cheer that spilled out of the room, down the hall and into the lobby of the fieldhouse.
