Posted

The Mustang basketball team is now 3-2 as sophomore Sam Bennett continues to dominate in scoring.

The Mustangs beat New Waverly, 67-57, and upset Hearne in a huge 79-35 defeat but lost to Willis and Normangee.

The Mustangs also edged out New Waverly in a 67-57 home game on Dec. 1. Jawan Lewis led in scoring with 20 points.

“We are trying to get better every day in practice so the games will be easier,” said Head Coach Brian Thurmond. “We must remain focused on the team and not individual agendas. This will allow us to have a successful season.”

The Mustangs varsity team plays in the Centerville tournament this weekend, and JV will head to New Waverly for tourney action.
