Boys regional final: Mater Dei vs. Fairfax
CIF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA REGIONAL FINAL

Where, when: Walter Pyramid, Long Beach State, 8 p.m.
Fan info: Admission, $48 courtside reserved, $18 adult general admission, $10 seniors (65 and older), $10 students (with valid student identification), $10 children (13 and younger). Parking: $5.
Live coverage: Time Warner Cable Community; live streaming on Time Warner Cable SportsNet.
Outlook: It will be interesting to see if Fairfax has mentally recovered from being held to nine points in the second half of its 47-34 loss to Mater Dei last month. Mater Dei coach Gary McKnight expects his counterpart, Lions coach Harvey Kitani, will have a different offensive game plan to challenge the Monarchs this time. Mater Dei is a little ticked over not making it to the CIF-Southern Section final and has a lot of confidence after regional wins over Westchester of Los Angeles and Bishop Montgomery of Torrance. A talented team with swagger and a chip on its shoulder is tough to beat.
