Nike Extravaganza is looking strong

January 27, 2011 | 12:25 pm

The Nike Extravaganza set for next Friday and Saturday at Santa Ana Mater Dei is filled with top boys' and girls' basketball teams.

On Saturday, Feb. 5, the top City Section boys' teams, Woodland  Hills Taft and Westchester, will get to show their stuff in back-to-back games. Westchester will face Orange Lutheran at 4 p.m. and Taft will play Concord De La Salle at 5:30 p.m. No word on whether De La Salle football Coach Bob Ladouceur will offer defensive suggestions.

The evening games should be fun. Mater Dei plays Los Angeles Price at 9 p.m. and the best game of the night matches unbeaten Long Beach Poly against Las Vegas Bishop Gorman at 7 p.m.

On Friday, Feb. 4, the girls' take center stage, with Mater Dei playing La Jolla Country Day at 9 p.m. and Brea facing Bishop Gorman at 7:30 p.m.
