February 3, 2006
McBrayer Arena - Eastern Ky University
Brossart vs Barbourville
Mustangs Pitch A Defensive Gem In 62-29
Win Over 17-3 Barbourville To Advance
To Final Four Of "A" State Tournament
Mustangs Defense Limits Tigers To One Touchdown
(7 Points) In The First Half
Jimmy Uebel Drains Three-Threes - Named MVP
The Brossart Mustangs showed the Barbourville Tigers just what great
defense really is.  The high-potency Tiger offense which had previously
been averaging over 70 points a game while producing seventeen wins this
season, was limited to merely seven points in the first half and twenty-nine
for the game as the Mustangs advanced to Saturday's semi-finals vs
Bardstown with the 62-29 decision in a contest which ended well past
midnight on Friday night.
The Wildcats may have sensed that it was going to be a long night as the
Mustangs again jumped out to an early 10-0 lead, enroute to a 15-2 first
quarter lead.  Troy Cooper was responsible for seven of those fifteen
points.  Adam Franzen picked up the slack in the second period with five
points, one on a shot beyond the arc and one just inches short of it.
Brossart led 24-7 at intermission after which Jimmy Uebel administered the
coup de grace by hitting a pair of bookend three point goals helping the
guys in green extend their lead to 42-20 as the JVs allowed the varsity to
become spectators for the best part of the remainder of the game.  The
Mustangs improve to 15-5 on the season and the Barbourville Tigers fall to
17-3 while wondering what had just hit them.  We have now completed the
fifth step in our seven-step program to win the 2006 Touchstone Energy
All "A" State Tournament.
Troy Cooper led all scorers with 14 points, Jimmy Uebel put up 11, Nathan
Mutsch 9, Kyle Lubbers 7, Adam Franzen 6, Brad Seiter 5, Kyle Kramer 4,
and Josh Kidney, Luke Rebholz, and Matthew Hansman all added a bucket
apiece.
On the merits of our win over Barbourville, the New Era Mustangs
become only the second Mustang team in history to advance to the "A"
State Semis or beyond.
