Matt Beeuwsaert (a.k.a. Coach Beez) was a Scholastic, Parade, and McDonald’s All-American out of Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana. He was an All-Orange County Player of the Year, All-Angelus League MVP, and CIF Player of the Year. He was an integral part of Gary McKnight’s first CIF Championship team and was also Team Captain. In an article by Steve Fryer of the O.C. Register, Coach Beez was voted as one of the top 25 high school players of all-time to ever come out of Orange County.
Coach Beez went on to play at both Notre Dame, under Coach Digger Phelps, and U.C. Berkeley, under Coach Lou Campanelli. The highlight of his collegiate career was on national television vs UCLA where he tallied 29 points, 15 rebounds, and 7 assists, and was awarded Player of the Week in the PAC-10.
In Europe, Coach Beez played for ten professional seasons, winning six Championships with two teams: Racing Mechelen and Spirou Charleroi.
Coach Beez was a student of the game. He prided himself on being a solid fundamental player, with the ability to play multiple positions. He could dribble, pass, shoot, post up and rebound, and was often asked to defend the other team’s top scorer.
