The Mason County Royals established just why
they have won 62 games over 10th Region
opponents early in their game with the Mustangs
on Tuesday night in the Fieldhouse.  Blowing
out to a 12-5 lead after a period in which the
Mustangs struggled to find themselves, the
Royals cruised to a rather easy 58-44 victory,
their 16th of the season against five losses..

Still showing the ill effects of our loss to
Hazard, the Mustangs struggled to hit shots
early on as they were forced to play from
behind in a game in which we never really ever
got in synch.
The Mustangs trailed by six, 22-16 at the half
and stayed within six until just before the end of
the third quarter when the Royals opened a
thirteen point lead 39-26 from where they would
cruise to the final margain of victory.  Wes
Jones led all scorers with 22, Micah Turner
contributed 12, and Andrew Tibbs 10, but the
most impressive player on the floor might well
have been freshman center, Darius Miller, who
scored seven but showed early and often that he
is a budding superstar.
The Mustangs were led in the scoring column by
Evan McDole who put up fifteen for the
Mustangs.  The Stangs appear to be badly in need
of a home game which they will get on Friday
night when former head coach Willie Schlarman
and the Highlands Bluebirds comes to call.

The JV Mustangs were tested over and again in
their rematch of the MCIT Finals with the Mason
County Royals but whenever they needed a big
bucket or a momentum swing it always seemed to
be there for them.  Falling behind early, a quick
Bob Rowe time-out righted the ship and the
Mustangs forged ahead 12-9 after the first six
minute quarter and never looked back.  We led
26-19 at the half and 36-30 after three quarters as
Kyle Kramer turned back a Royals challenge with
a big
"3" keeping Big Mo in a green uniform into the
final period.  A Jimmy Uebel three-pointer and
seven points by the workhorse, Troy Cooper put
the finishing touches on the Royals as the
Mustangs improved to 16-0 on the season.  Troy
Cooper led all scorers with a 21 point output and
Nathan Mutsch hit double figures with 10, as the
Mustangs put 8 players in the scoring column.
The Mustang JVs, who had been idle since
January 21st will have a busy weekend, playing
Highlands at home on Friday, a 38th District
Semi-Finals matchup with Bracken County on
Saturday afternoon at Pendleton County High
School, a JV game at Simon Kenton on Saturday
night and hopefully a return to Falmouth for the
Championship game of the 38th District, a title
that we have won for the past two seasons, on
Sunday afternoon.
