Mustangs play hard-fought four quarters in loss to Wimberley

WIMBERLEY — The Marble Falls High School boys basketball team continues to learn despite the losses, according to head coach Neil Laminack.

The Mustangs’ latest setback was to Wimberley 79-63 on Nov. 27. The Texans played a full-court defense throughout the game and were physical from the tipoff to the end, the Mustangs skipper said.

Though the score might not indicate it, Laminack said his players fought for four quarters.

"I think that the way you prepare to win a game, the way you show up is not habit yet," he said. "Championship preparation is not habit. We revert back to what’s comfortable. You can see the want-to."

That’s taking quick shots instead of being patient in half-court sets.

"We have about 15 games to figure that out," Laminack said. "Hopefully, by the time (District 25-4A) play gets here, we know who and what we are."

ON OFFENSE: Points —Ishiah Carson 16, Joey Blacklege 9, Frederick Filsoof and Colin Edwards 8 each

RECORDS: Marble Falls is 1-3.

UP NEXT: Marble Falls vs. Austin Hyde Park at noon and against Austin Crockett at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 29 at Max Copeland Gym, 2101 Mustang Drive in Marble Falls to start the McDonald’s Classic
