The private high school in Santa Ana perennially challenges for championships and produces players who earn scholarships from the nation's very best college basketball programs.

Playing solely for pride, Servite High School probably cost Mater Dei its third-place seeding in the Southern Section 5-A division playoffs and its top ranking in Orange County with a stunning 8-1 victory Wednesday in Santa Ana.
