Now that a seemingly never-ending high school basketball season is over, the next season can begin. That would be travel ball. And let the transfer season begin too. If you think one-and-done is popular in college, then get ready for one-and-done in high school basketball. Those are the players who spend one year at a high school, then move on to the next best deal. The CIF doesn't seem to mind. Its approach is, we'll send you to the Open Division to compete against the other schools who want to win badly.

Not only does Mater Dei have perhaps the best player in California, it also has the best team.  On Saturday night, the Monarchs proved that where it counts: on the court. Mater Dei won its 11th state title, its fourth in a row and its second straight in the Open Division with a 71-61 victory over Bishop O'Dowd, a team the Monarchs edged 63-59 at the Tarkanian Classic in Las Vegas in December. Arizona-bound Stanley Johnson led the charge with 25 points, eight assists, three steals and two blocks and his spectacular two-handed dunk early in the second quarter ignited a 10-4 run that put Mater Dei in front.

SACRAMENTO - It was only fitting that in Stanley Johnson's final game as a Mater Dei Monarch, he got to show off his skills in an NBA arena, because that's where he figures to be hanging out in a few years. On Saturday night, he became the first player in California history to win four upper-division state championships, scoring 25 points and contributing eight assists in Santa Ana Mater Dei's 71-61 victory over Oakland Bishop O'Dowd in the Open Division final at Sleep Train Arena.

 A day after his team's 67-64 loss to Santa Ana Mater Dei in double overtime, Etiwanda Coach Dave Kleckner reflected on a game that will go down in history as a classic. "They battled their hearts out," Kleckner said of his players. "That would have been the biggest win in our school history. " Kleckner felt that a foul should have been called after his team stole an inbounds pass in the final seconds of the second overtime down by one. Somehow, Stanley Johnson ended up with the ball for Mater Dei and made two free throws with 4.2 seconds left.
