Mustangs Get Six Loss Gorilla Off
Our Backs With 52-38 Road Win
Over St. Henry
JVs Top Off 17-7 Season With 53-32 Rout of Cru JVs
Finish Second In NKAC Division II Race With 5-1 Record
February 24, 2006
Mustang Junior Bryan Niemeyer saved his best JV
performance of the season for last, connecting on
four first-half 3-point longballs in putting together a
20 point performance.  That is the most points scored
by any Mustang in a JV game this season.  Matthew
Hansman added 10 as the Mustangs overcame a 12-8
first quarter deficit and pushed out to a 26-19 lead at
halftime on Niemeyer's coattails as Bryan scored 12
of his 20 in the second period.
We are very proud of these JVs who finish their
season at 17-7, were 37th District Champs, and one
point from pulling off a four-peat in the MCIT
tournament.  They also finish as NKAC Divsion II
Runner-ups with a 5-1 record as Holy Cross, our one
loss, completed their conference schedule.  In the
past three years Coach Bob Rowe's JVs have amassed
a 60-10 record and if you go back four years Coach
Rowe coached JV teams are now 80-13.
Figure in the top competition, including Elder, LaSalle,
McNicholas, Lexington Catholic, CovCath, and the
"all comers" schedule that our JVs play year in and
year out and it is really amazing.

The Brossart Mustangs rolled into Erlanger on the
final night of the regular season needing a win about
as bad as a good team could possibly need a win.
The string of unexpected losses had reached six and
the district, regional, and state tournaments loomed
directly ahead.
Coach David Faust, having done his homework and
noting our recent inability hit shots from the
perimeter, came out in an old-fashioned 2-3 Zone,
challenging us to a horse game.
Fortunately, the varsity Mustangs took their cue
from the just completed JV game, where the
Mustangs connected on five shots from beyond the
arc in dispatching their Crusader counterparts, and
the big guys made it more of the same.
Jimmy Uebel led five Mustangs scorers in putting up
13 points in the first period to St. Henry's five vs
intense Mustang defense giving the Stangs an 8 point
lead at 13-5 after eight minutes of play.
St. Henry abandoned the zone plan in the second
period and tried to guard us man-to-man in the half
court with a sprinkling of full-court pressure, just to
mix things up some.  The result was a 13-13 second
quarter that still equated to a 26-18 Brossart Mustangs
halftime lead.
Brossart would put up two more 13 point periods in
the second half, giving them 52 on the night, and
enough to defeat St. Henry (the 33rd District top
seed) 52-38, heading back home on a new one game
win streak, which if would grow to match our recent
losing streak, would put us right into the Sweet
Sixteen State Tournament during the third week in
The 2000 team that made the trip had lost four of
their last six regular season games and didn't win their
twenthieth until they beat Graves County in Rupp.
The Mustangs were led by Troy Cooper, who would
be named to the NKCA Division II All-Region Team
on Saturday morning.  Cooper scored 15 points vs
the Cru and was followed closely by Jimmy Uebel
with 14 points and his normal assortment of
intangibles that contributed to our victory.  Brandon
Lenhof, who went off on us in our earlier season
Sydome encounter, was held to 10 points on his own
home court.
The Mustangs again played without the services of
Josh Kidney who is still nursing an ouchy ankle.  
While Josh looked real nice in his shirt and tie sitting
next to the coaching staff, he didn't look very happy
about being a spectator.
