NEEDLES — Mustangs varsity basketball suffered two defeats on the road last week: 55-48 to Lake Mead Christian Academy’s Eagles on Feb. 4 and 88-79 to The Meadows Mustangs in overtime on Feb. 7.

Both were NIAA 2A South games. The boys’ conference record is now 8-4.

“The boys played very well on Tuesday against Lake Mead,” Coach J.R. Rodriguez reported. “It was a tough game.

“They showed a lot of heart, a lot of fight,” against The Meadows, he continued; taking the game into overtime.

The Mustangs beat Lake Mead by two the first time the two met this season, on Jan. 7 in The Corral. They lost 72-56 to The Meadows three days later, also in The Corral.
