Bloomington North benefited from a little home cooking, and though they played hard, the visiting Mustangs couldn’t match up with the taller, stronger Cougars on the glass in a 77 – 67 loss. Edgewood narrowed the margin to 1 late in the 3rd quarter, but a few costly turnovers and missed free throws kept them from taking the lead. Then, leading scorer Trevor Taylor–who was hampered by foul trouble for much of the game–picked up his 5th foul only a minute into the 4th quarter, and the Mustangs couldn’t come closer than 6 the remainder of the way.
Taylor had 15 points to lead a well-balanced Edgewood attack that saw seven different players score 7 or more points, including Coleman Sater and Houston Holmes with 10 points each. Joe Kido and Kyle Rogers scored 9 points apiece, while Cam Banister and Derek Farkas added 7 each to complete the scoring for the Mustangs.
Edgewood has a short turn-around, as they host BNL in a rare Saturday afternoon matchup, with tip-off scheduled for 1:30 PM.
