Boys' basketball: Mater Dei finishes third at City of Palms Classic

December 23, 2010 | 10:21 pm

Katin Reinhardt finished with 28 points and Xavier Johnson added 26 points as Mater Dei captured third place at the City of Palms Classic in Fort Myers (Fla.) with an 84-66 victory over Winter Park (Fla.) on Thursday.

Reinhardt and Johnson picked a good time to show off their basketball skills -- Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski and basketball commentator Dick Vitale were among the notable college basketball celebrities in attendance during the final day of the prestigious tournament.

The Monarchs' lone loss in the tournament came Tuesday against eventual tourney champs Elizabeth (N.J.) St. Patrick. At 9-1, Mater Dei has once again established itself as one of Southern California's best teams.

Ranked No. 3 in the Southland by The Times, Mater Dei will play its next game Monday at the Orange Holiday Classic at Chapman University.
