Prep Basketball : Ocean View Upsets Third-Ranked Mater Dei

Mike Frohn scored a career-high 33 points to lead Ocean View High School to a 79-58 upset of Mater Dei Saturday night in a nonleague game at Ocean View.

Ocean View, (11-7, 5-1), unranked in the Orange County Sportswriters' Assn. poll, outscored the third-ranked Monarchs, 22-15, in both the first and second quarters to take a 44-30 halftime lead.

Ocean View continued to build its lead in the second half, shooting 60% from the field.

"I felt we've been playing very well lately," said Ocean View Coach Jim Harris. "Somehow, every year, Ocean View seems to do something to make the season exciting. Right now I just marvel to watch it. We're still climbing a mountain, but we're getting near the top. I'm very pleased."

It was only Mater Dei's second loss to an Orange County team since Gary McKnight took over the program six years ago. Mater Dei had its first loss to an Orange County team earlier this season to Capistrano Valley.

Kevin Rembert scored 20 points to lead Mater Dei (14-6, 5-1), but Mike Hopkins, who averages 16.1 points, was held to five points.
