FRESHMAN SEASON OPENER @ HOME
Mustangs Take Circuitous Route To 58-53 Opening Night Victory Over Villa Madonna
Mustangs vs Villa Madonna
Monday November 27th
It appeared to be business as usual as tour Mustangs ran out to an 18-4 first quarter lead over the visiting Villa Madonna Vikings. Villa matched our effort in the second period as both teams put up 11 points, while the Mustangs maintained their 15 point lead at the half. Alex Combs was responsible for 9 of those points, and 7 of 8 Free Throw shooting also contributed. Defensively, we had limited the Villa Blue-Chipper, Henry Thole to a single bucket. Again in the third period we played even up basketball, with Villa gaining a point on us, by winning the period 14-13. Brossart continued to lead 42-29 and it looked like the home team had this one salted away.
However looks can be deceiving and when Quinn Thomas scored the first 7 points in the final stanza, Vila had closed the margin to 42-36 and suddenly we had a ballgame. Twice the Vikings closed to within a single possession, but the Mustangs were up to the task, answering each challenge while hitting our free-throws. In the quarter Dom Hadden 9 of 12 and the team knocked home 14 of 17 to hold the Vikings at bay and post our opening night victory 58-53.
Dom Hadden and Alex Combs shared scoring honors for the Mustangs with 16 points each. On the night our Mustangs held a 19 points advantage from the charity stripe (26/33 to 7/15), as the new “bonus” rules met with our liking in this one. Quinn Thomas led all scorers with 20 point for the Vikings, and Henry Thole came alive for 10 points on the night. Brossart won the JV Game 67-12 with Carson Hesse leading a trio of double-figure scorers with 17 points. Drew Steffen contributed 16, and Karter Morgan 14. All seven Mustangs who dressed, scored.
We will be back in action this coming Thursday night when we travel to Taylor Mill for a 37th District Seeding battle with Calvary Christian. Meanwhile our JV team will take on CovLatin and our Freshmen will play Conner at home Tuesday night with game times being 5:30pm for the JV event and 7pm for the Freshman Game. The Freshman Game will be broadcast live beginning at 6:40pm.

RULE CHANGES FOR 2023-24
There are two meaningful rule changes for this basketball season, regarding the conduct of the game. The first is that instead of the old bonus (1+1) after 7 fouls in a half, and two shots after 10 fouls in a half, we will now shoot two shots when a team commits in excess of five team fouls in a quarter. Team fouls will reset to zero at the conclusion of a quarter. There is no longer a one and one.
The second change is less noticeable. It involves inbounds points when the ball goes out of bounds. The only four inbounds points in each half-court will be two spots on the baseline, equidistant between the edge of the free-throw lane and the corner on both sides of the basket, and at the 26′ mark, about 2/3rd of the way up the sideline from the baseline. So, there will be no more inbounds play from directly under the corner of the backboard, nor from the “Water Cooler Corner.”
