Following the Championship Run of 2000, the 2001 Mustangs entered post-season play believing anything was possible
and set their sights on a repeat.  After defeating the Pendleton County Wildcats in the opening round of the 38th
District Tournament, the Mustangs who had lost earlier in the season to Campbell County 73-44, dominated every
quarter of their rematch with the Camels in the District Finals but the last one, allowing Campbell County to come
from behind to claim the 38th District Title and enter the 10th Region Tournament as a district loser.  
Freshman Derrick
Rhoden put on a show
that night, scoring over
Campbell superstar
Kevin Reinhardt and
blocking numerous
Camel shot attempts.
It was one of his best
efforts ever.
The Brossart Mustangs took on Paris in the opening round of the 2001 10th Regional Tournament.  Brossart had
defeated Paris 71-53 on December 1st in the "Hound Pound" and 54-42 enroute to winning the All "A" Regional
Tournament BUT Paris was on fire in the opening minutes of this game and the guys in green faced an early 19-2
deficit and appeared headed for an early ouster from the Grand Stage that year.  However, as we all know, 19 points
do not win ballgames and the Mustangs clawed back into it 33-27 by halftime and would overtake the upset-minded
Hounds 46-41 by the end of the third quarter.
Michael Eten and the
2001 Mustangs refused
to lose in the opening
round of that year's
10th Region
Tournament and rallied
from seventeen points
behind to post the win.
After dodging the Paris bullet, the Mustangs appeared poised to challenge Mason County in a re-match of the 2000
Championship game, only this year the Mustangs were sans Justin Seiter and a new face on the scene would propel
the Royals.
A young freshman named Chris Lofton  proved too tough for the 2001 Mustangs as they continued their apparent
drive to the title, snuffing out Mustangs thoughts of a repeat, with a convincing 74-60 win over our
defending regional champions.
The Royals would be upset in the regional finals by Campbell County.
The Mustangs Closed Out The 2001 Season With A 16-15 Record
