Mustang homecoming basketball games 2018

Homecoming celebrations on Saturday, Feb. 3 were topped off with a double victory for the Mustang and Lady Mustang basketball teams against Missouri Baptist University.

The Lady Mustangs won their game with a final score of 57-50. Freshman Holly Allen led the Lady Mustangs with 13 points.

“There was a lot of energy on and off the court, plus the crowd helped bring and keep that momentum going for the team,” said junior Hailey Bunch. “We played a good defense and kept good communication throughout the game. We made a lot of big shots and fought our way to a win.”

The men’s game started slow in the first period, finishing with a score of 34-35, but by the second half the Mustangs had risen 50-40 over Missouri Baptist.

“It was a critical point in the game and after I got the steal and made the dunk, I knew it would affect the other team giving us an advantage,” said sophomore Ashford Golden.

The Mustangs went on to win 84-75 against MBU.
