HOOP WRAP: Mustangs cruise past Bobcats

WEST ORANGE — After West Orange-Stark jumped on Orangefield early, it was smooth sailing for the Mustangs the rest of the way as they downed the Bobcats 72-42 in District 21-3A action at Mustang Gym Friday night.

The Mustangs (18-10, 7-2) held the Bobcats (14-12, 3-7) to just four field goals in the first half and WO-S went on a 17-8 run in the first period and a 18-8 jaunt in the second quarter to take a comfortable 35-16 advantage going into intermission.

Everyone was involved in the Mustang victory as 11 different Mustangs got into the scoring column.

Travon Blanchard led the Mustang attack, scoring 14 points while snagging seven rebounds. Post Tyrant Thompson recorded a double-double, tallying 12 points while ripping down 10 boards. Blanchard and Thompson both had eight points apiece in the first half.

Laquarious Paige had another excellent all-around game for WO-S, scoring 12 points to go along with eight rebounds and six assists.

Tevin Terrell had six points and eight boards for WO-S while Chase Rutledge contributed seven points and five rebounds.

Carl Wiley led the Bobcats with 10 points, nine of them coming in the second half. Carmichael Wiley had seven points, six of them in the first half. Dustin Verrett finished with six points, going a perfect 6-for-6 from the free-throw line. Levi Shores led the Bobcats on the glass, grabbing 11 rebounds, 10 of them coming in the first half.

The Mustangs forced the Bobcats into 10 of their 23 turnovers in the first quarter to set the tone.

WO-S, which had 15 turnovers, outrebounded the Bobcats 44-27.

The Bobcats finished 15-of-25 from the free-throw line while the Mustangs converted 13-of-18.

The Mustangs outscored the Bobcats 24-12 in the third period to go up 59-28. The Bobcats went on to outpoint WO-S 14-13 in the last eight minutes.

The Mustangs, who remain tied for second-place in 21-3A with Hardin-Jefferson (29-3, 7-2), will visit Buna Tuesday. Orangefield has its bye Tuesday and will host Buna next Friday.
