Eastern High School
Edgewood High School
Cooper Bybee poured in a school-record 48 points and the host Mustangs won an 88 – 85 Senior Night shoot-out over the visiting Thunderbirds from Eastern Greene. In a near-flawless offensive performance, Bybee was 8 of 11 from 3-point range (14 of 19 overall) and 12 of 13 from the free throw line. Eastern Greene connected on 15 of 30 shots from behind the arc to keep the game close, but in the end the Mustangs were able to get just enough defensive stops to come away with the win.
In addition to Bybee’s historic effort, Chayton Howard continued his strong play, scoring 23 points (on 9 of 13 shooting) and grabbing a team-high 13 rebounds. Rounding out the scoring for the Mustangs was Jayce Collier with 6 points, Jason Brown & Houston Holmes with 4 points each, and Joe Kido with 3.
