The PCM Mustangs’ girls’ basketball team lost by the slimmest of margins in overtime, while the boys played superb defense in the second half to continue their hot run, as both teams were on the road last night at Greene County. On the boys’ side of things, they were tied at 21 apiece at the half, when the Mustangs came out in the second half and played incredible defense, holding Greene County to just ten total points in the final 16 minutes to propel them to victory, 47 – 31. Senior Alex DeWitte led all scorers with 15, while Mike Neff scored 12. Head coach, Fred Lorensen, told KNIA/KRLS Sports, that the big key to victory was his team holding Greene County to one shot almost every time down the court. For the girls, they just couldn’t find the clutch basket they needed, after heading into overtime tied at 41, Greene County pulled away with a 46 – 45 victory. Abbi Gilson led all scorers with a whopping 21 points on 9-of-16 shooting, while Alexis Kain had seven points off the bench. The boys are 3 – 0 on the year while the loss drops the Mustangs’ girls’ record to 1 – 3. Each team will return home on Tuesday to host South Hamilton in another boys/girls doubleheader.
