High schools roundup: Mater Academy edges Zion Lutheran in Kreul Showcase

Once the 64-58 come-from-behind victory over Zion Lutheran was secured, Mater Academy’s biggest spark — Dylan Frye — put the icing on the cake with a sweet dump-off pass to Rafael Diaz for a two-hand dunk with 35 seconds left.

Chris Mejia kept Mater Academy in the game with a game-high 23 points before Frye, a Bowling Green signee, erupted for 15 of his 20 points in the second half of the Kreul Showcase at Monarch High School on Friday.

Zion Lutheran standout Brandon Bornelus scored 11 of his 13 points in the second half, and Rafael Baldassi had 16 points. But it wasn’t enough to stave off Mater Academy’s pivotal fourth-quarter surge.

Zion led 39-35 entering the fourth quarter before Mater Academy turned the momentum for good with a 23-5 blitz, led by Frye.

Frye’s layup preceded Mejia’s fifth three-pointer, Frye adding another layup and then a pull-up three-pointer for a 54-44 lead with 3:35 left.

In another game, University School had no answer for Dillard’s star wing tandem of Raiquan Gray and Jordan Wright, who scored 21 points apiece to lead the Panthers to a 72-57 victory.

University School’s Michael Moore had a team-high 19 points and highly touted 7-0 freshman Balsa Koprivica added 13 points to keep the Suns within striking distance before Koprivica fouled out with 6:22 left in the fourth quarter with Dillard leading 52-42.

Gray made his presence felt on the defensive end when he blocked Vernon Carey’s two-hand dunk attempt to preserve a 56-44 lead with 5:01 left and then raced downcourt for a layup that pushed the lead to 58-44.

Wright, meanwhile, deferred to Gray in the first half but brought the Dillard bench to its feet with a breakaway left-handed dunk with 4:29 left to give the Panthers a 60-44 lead.
