2007 Touchstone Energy All "A" State Tournament
The University Heights Blazers were making
their 14th appearance in the Touchstone
Energy All "A" State Tournament this week.  
They had won this event on seven occasions.  
Their enrollment from the 9th Grade to the
12th Grade is 83 and their basketball roster
braggs two Division One prospects.

Brossart, whose roster is comprised of 8
seniors who grew up competing with and
against each other since they were kids,
humbled the University Heights (Basketball)
Academy 58-38 in the Touchstone Energy All
"A" State Semi-Finals on Saturday.

UHA simply couldn't deal with our defense.  
After a horrid shooting experience for the
first quarter and a half and trailing 12-8 after
a period, Josh Kidney pried the lid off of the
McBreyer Arena hoops by nailing a 3-point
goal at the 2:50 mark in the second period
which ignited a rally which saw the Mustangs
take a 22-18 lead to the locker room at
halftime.   The second half was all Bishop
Brossart, as the Mustangs outscored the
Blazers 13-7 to take a 35-25 advantage into
the final stanza.  By then the UHA Blazers
had given up and it became a foregone
conclusion that the Mustangs would advance
to the Championship game on Sunday
afternoon.

The Mustangs only had four players put ink
in the scorebook, but each that scored made a
major offensive contribution.  Josh Kidney
scored 9, "Battleship" Bryan Niemeyer 12,
Jimmy Uebel (7-7 From The Free Throw Line)
added 14, and the game's MVP Troy Cooper
laid 23 on the Blazers.  Kyle Kramer and Matt
Lloyd were relentless on defense.

With the victory the '07 Mustangs become 20
game winners, the first Mustangs team to win
over 20 since the '03-04 Mustangs went 23-6.




The win over UHA qualifies the '07 Mustangs
to become legends, an opportunity to bring
the first boys All "A" State Championship
trophy back to Alexandria.

The story of this team's run in this
tournament is a testament to the resolve of
the seven seniors who have banded together
to overcome the loss of a key cog.  To win this
thing, overcoming the incredible odds stacked
against them, will make for one of the most
incredible sucess stories in the history of our
program.

Best of luck to Coach Mike Code and his
hard-working staff who have given these guys
the opportunity to cut the nets down in the
"A" State big dance on Sunday
