Scott Eagles Earn 37th District Top Seed With 48-44 Win
Field Set For 37th District Post-Season Tournament
Mustangs Will Play Campbell County In District Semi-Finals
                          Momentum A Fickle Friend In Mustang Loss To Eagles
The Friday night showdown with the Scott Eagles and the 37th District top seed on the line was a game of momentum
swings.
Scott tried to make quick work of the Brossart Mustangs in the first quarter, limiting the Stangs to only three field-goals -
three-pointers by Joey Webb and Jordan Armstrong and a conventional basket by Drew Kremer, as the Eagles ran out to a
16-8 first quarter lead, and then had amply opportunity to blow it open before the Mustangs solved the Eagle press, and
went on an 18-7 run to grab the lead 26-23 at the half.
The first three minutes of the second half belonged to the Mustangs who pushed their lead to ten points on two occasions,
but still failed to capitalize on additional opportunities but still led by seven, 40-33, after three quarters.
Momentum then became discontented with the attentions of the Brossart Mustangs, changing affiliations in the fourth
quarter and snuggling up with the Scott Eagles who held our Mustangs to only a pair of field-goals and a total of four points,
as the Eagles put 15 on the board, to edge our guys 48-44.
Joey Webb led all scorers with 15 points, on four three-pointers, including  a four-point play following being fouled in the
act of shooting and connecting on a long-range bomb.  Drew Kremer added a 10 point, double-figure performance, and
Jacob Rieger, plagued with foul trouble throughout the second half, was limited to 6 points.  Sophomore Travis Norton
turned in a huge performance coming off the bench with 5 points, and a great defensive effort.
Nikola Gligorevic combined with birthday boy, Jacob Niederegger  to account for 21 of the Eagles' 48 points.  Sophomore
Kellen Smith put up 9 points including a pair of three-point daggers in the fourth quarter.
Congratulations to good friend Brad Carr, Athletic Director Ken Mueller, and the Scott Eagles on earning the 37th District's
top seed.  They will play the winner of Silver Grove - Calvary for a berth in the district finals and a ticket to the 10th Region
Tournament at the Bank of Kentucky Center, the week of February 23rd.  Brossart and Campbell County will square off in
the opposite bracket for the remaining finals berth, and regional entry.
Our Mustangs will now focus our attentions on the upcoming "A" regional tournament, commencing this coming Monday in
Augusta.

                           Brian Wolfer Out 4-6 Weeks With Broken Foot
Senior Brian Wolfer sustained a broken foot on Tuesday night in the Cooper game.
The Brossart coaching staff was notified on Wednesday that we would be without the services of the big redhead for the Scott game and that he
could possibly be out for the remainder of the season.  The broken bone on the outside of his left foot was set on Friday and placed in a cast,
where it will remian until February 16th when it will be re-evaluated.
We wish Brian a speedy recovery and return to the Mustangs lineup!
                              Mustang JVs Fall 47-31 To Eagles In Prelim
Too Much Jacob Niedereger!!!
The story could stop there.  The Junior forward was simply too much for the Mustang JVs on his birthday, warming to
the task after scoring a single field-goal in the first period and then exploding for 23 more points the rest of the night,
paving the way to the Eagles' 47-31 win.
Brossart fell behind 7-3 after a quarter, but battled back to tie the contest at 11 all before two mis-administrated "fouls in
the act of shooting," resulted in a pair of unwarrented technical fouls that detracted from the playing of the game,
positioning the Eagles to extend their lead to 22-14 at halftime.
In the second half the Eagles' defense took over, limiting our guys to merely four points in the third quarter, as the Eagles
ran out to a 34-18 lead, sealing the fate of the now 4-8 Brossart Mustang JVs.
In the fourth quarter the Mustangs got some quality minutes from Corey Hartig, who strung three consecutive field-goals
to finish his night's work with 6 points, and Jason Hering completed a three point play - the old fashioned way.  Daniel
Schultz led the Mustangs with 7 points from a solid performance which saw him take a charge, and go 3/3 from the
charity stripe.
