Girls' basketball: Berkeley 16, Mater Dei 15
The backdrop in the NBA arena, which is home to the Sacramento Kings, frequently causes teams to shoot poorly. While neither side was particularly accurate from three-point distance, each got its fair share of layups and putbacks. Senior guard Nirra Fields leads the Monarchs' attack.
After a slow start, Mater Dei has begun to score inside and that does not bode well for Berkeley.
