Through it all the JV Mustangs did what they did best
- move the ball, hit the open man, take the
uncontested shot, and play great defense. While our

inside game was golden as Nathan Mutsch and Troy
Cooper combined for 22 of the Mustangs 44 points
and nailed ten of eleven from the free-throw line
between them and our guard corps did an excellent
job of getting them the ball in advantagous situations.
The Mustangs were a combined 18 of 26 from the
free-throw line, a figure their varsity counterparts
would have liked to have had an hour later.
Luke Rebholz and Adam Franzen supplied the only
3-ball conections on the day and Jimmy Uebel put up
six points, all via the charity stripe.
Brossart led 9-5 at the quarter stop and 18-14 at
intermission. The Mustangs drew off to a 30-22 lead

Stortz Wraps Up His Freshmen Season Early
The Mustang Freshmen tipped off the Brossart-Pendleton tripleheader in successful manner, defeating the
homestanding Cats 32-18.
Playing six minutes of nearly even ball through the first quarter saw the Stangs on top 5-4, the Mustangs
rallied for fourteen points in the second period, led by a six point barrage by Ryan Neltner, to take a 19-8 lead
to the locker-room at halftime. The eleven point halftime bulge gave the Mustangs enough of a cushion to
cruise through the second half in winning their fifth game of the season.
Nine Mustangs put numbers in the scorebook, led by Greg Stortz, playing in his final game in a freshmen
uniform, who had nine points on the evening. Ryan Neltner finished the day with seven and Zach Hertzenberg
