GARDEN GROVE — The list of freshmen to watch in Orange County girls basketball received another addition on Monday, and it’s Charlotte Muller of Esperanza.

The forward sank 10 3-pointers en route to 33 points to help the Aztecs defeat St. Anthony 84-58 at the Presion Showcase at Orangewood Academy on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Senior guard Kaiya Mack added 31 points, including five 3-pointers, for Esperanza (17-3), ranked seventh in Orange County.

Freshman forward Kaeli Wynn added 25 points off the bench for Mater Dei.

McKinley Willardsom paced Santiago with 13 points while Ghent and Jayda Cobbs added 12 and 11 points, respectively.

“It’s not revenge but it’s still nice to get them back,” Sharks coach Mike Mitchell said of Sage Hill, which again played without Annabelle Spotts (ankle).
