Use the sphere command.
There's also the related sph2cart for converting azimuth, elevation and radius to x,y,z.

You can use sphere to split it into n number of equal parts. So if you want every 10 degrees, thats 360/10=36. For example:
[x,y,z] = sphere(36);
[az,el,r] = cart2sph(x,y,z);
az = rad2deg(az);
