[GET] Mary Star girls basketball riding undefeated streak into Division 4AA final – Daily Breeze – Fees

The Mary Star girls basketball team isn’t a stranger to success in the CIF Southern Section playoffs.

The Stars have made the semifinals in three of the last four seasons, but the dream season has always ended right there.

This season, the fourth-seeded Stars have made it over their obstacle and into tonight’s Division 4AA final, where they will host No. 2 seed Agoura at 7 p.m.

The Stars opened the playoffs with a 48-36 win over Temple City and followed that wins against La Quinta/W (62-53), Calabasas (78-64) and Immaculate Heart (57-40).

“This has been really special,” Mary Star coach Victor Tuberosi said. “The girls play all out, all of the time … it has been a true pleasure. We’ve been waiting for this. The pandemic took away what I loved to do and that’s coaching and this team has been special.”

You can also call the Stars undefeated. The Stars are 19-0, a far cry from when Tuberosi first took over in 2013.

“I had never coached girls in my life and they were coming off a 1-15 season and had 36 straight league losses,” he said. “The first goal was to win a league game and the next mark was to put a star on the wall for winning a league championship, something they hadn’t done since 1984.”

The Stars won a share of the league Santa Fe League title last season and outright title this season.
