The Mustangs’ season was a successful one, no doubt, as they once again made the postseason; it was their third trip in four years. However, in the eyes of head coach Dwight Williams, it could have been better.
“I felt like we took a little too long to get where we needed to be,” he said, “and we didn’t start playing really good basketball until halfway through the first half of district. I really wanted that to start earlier. When it did happen, we got pretty good and did play some good basketball.”
As it turned out, the Mustangs were good enough to go 9-5 in District 11-6A and capture the No. 3 seed. That set up a bi-district date with Killeen Harker Heights, the No. 2 seed out of 12-6A, one that resulted in a 42-40 season-ending loss on Feb. 23. Had the Mustangs played better ball earlier, Williams noted, they might have earned a No. 2 or possibly a No. 1 seed.
“I really felt going there wasn’t a team in the district that wasn’t that much better than us as far as team concept and the personnel we had,” Williams said.
