Corey Sorrell tacked on 31 ponints on to his plus 1,000 career points total in
leading the Holy Cross Indians to a homestanding 61-46 NKAC Divison II game
vs our Brossart Mustangs on Tuesday night in Latonia.  Shina Giwa added 14
points as he and Sorrell combined for 45 of their team's 61 points.
Giwa put up 7 points in the first period to pace the Indians to a 15-8 advantage
after 8 minutes of play.  Sorrell took over in the second stanza with 12 points,
hitting four field-goals and going 4 of 4 from the foul line as his Indians took a
31-22 lead to the locker room at halftime.  
Holy Cross went on a 12-1 run to start the third period, increasing their lead to
46-30 after three periods, and for all intents and purposes, claim the Mustangs'
scalp.  
Brossart outscored the Injuns 16-15 in the fourth period to make the final - 61-46.
In addition to his 14 points, Giwa forced numerous Mustangs turnovers with his
tenacious man-to-man defense of our point guards.
Our PNC Player of the Game - Greg Stortz, led the Mustangs with 11 points.
Drew Kremer and Jacob Rieger contributed 7 apiece.
Holy Cross improves to a very deceiving 7-8 on the year and 3-1 in the
conference race, while Brossart falls to .500 at 8-8 and 1-3 against NKAC
Division II competition.
Brossart will head to Maysville on Thursday night to take on St. Patrick in the
"Cloverdome" while Holy Cross will host the Covington Catholic Colonels on Friday.
