The Brossart Mustangs remain undefeated with a
59-41 victory over NKAC Division II opponent Holy
Cross.
Any time these two mirror-image teams square off it
is a physical affair and last night's war was no
exception.
The Indians jumped out to a 15-10 first period lead.  
Corey Sorrell ruled the first half putting up 13 points in
the first fourteen minutes of the contest before Matt
Lloyd entered the Mustangs lineup and totally denied
the 6'4" Junior forward the ball.  
It took until the 2:11 mark in the second period until
the Mustangs caught up and tied the game at 24-24.
A Kyle Kramer three point goal and a backdoor basket
by Troy Cooper with the accompanying free-throw
sent the Mustangs to the locker room on top at 30-24.
The Mustangs continued on what would be an 11-0
run in the early minutes of the second half, expanding
their six point halftime lead to 33-24 and went on to
lead by as many as twenty points at 59-39, before
posting the 59-41, eighteen point win.
Josh Kidney was brilliant in handling the rock, against
heavy pressure and Kyle Kramer netted two huge three
point goals in the first half.
Troy Cooper led the Mustangs with 15 points, hitting
on three field goals and knocking down 9 of 9 from
the charity stripe.  He and Nathan Mutsch combined
for 24 points on the night.  Jimmy Uebel added 13
points.
Corey Sorrell finished the night with 19 points, but
failed to hit another field goal after halftime.  Brossart
hit on 25 of 31 free-throws while the Indians could
manage only 11 of 21 attempts.

As Casey Sorrell Hits 11th
Hour Three-Pointer To Spoil
Mustangs Perfect Season
The Brossart and Holy Cross freshmen hooked up in
one of the more exciting freshmen games ever played
in the friendly confines of the SyDome.
After spotting the Indians a 7-0 first quarter lead, the
Mustangs battled back to make it a 9-6 Holy Cross
advantage at the end of the period.
Brossart caught the Indians at 13-13 and put a nose
in front at 16-15 with 1:31 in the half.  The Mustangs
would maintain the one point lead 21-20 at halftime.
Things looked to be under control after three quarters
as the Mustangs led 32-28.  A series of mid-fourth
quarter passing errors allowed the Indians to get back
into the game.  A Jordan Armstrong basket gave the
Stangs a 45-44 lead with just seconds to go  and
appeared to be the  
game winner when Casey Sorrell administered the
coup de grace with a coffin corner 3 point goal to
give Holy Cross the 47-45 NKAC Division II win.  
Rieger-Armstrong combined for 30 Mustangs points.
