The Broncos huddled together before taking the court for their last scrimmage before beginning the season.

Mustang coach Terry Long gave Mustang words of wisdom before the Broncos stuck their hands together and shouted, “March 15.”

March 15 is the day that the state title game will be played on. Mustang is working towards that day. To prepare to get there the Broncos hosted Bishop McGuinness on Tuesday morning for a scrimmage.

The Broncos held off the Fighting Irish with a 87-78 finish in the elongated game-like matchup. 

“We’re still learning. We didn’t do very well in this scrimmage. We have to play better defense and talk more,” Mustang sophomore Jakolby Long said.

Mustang has returned their starting five from last year with Terrell Williams, Long, Austin Meyer, Geoff Hightower, and Chandler Garrett. 

Long suffered a knee injury towards the end of the year last season. In Mustang’s last scrimmage he got quite a few minutes. Long took around four months off from basketball after the season ended.

“It feels a lot better now,” Long said. 

Mustang will also have Aubrey Johnson back, who proved he can provide a boost from the bench with his shooting abilities. 

The Broncos will also have a few new faces to the team. Isaiah Hammons and DeMarion Love are expected to get significant minutes for Mustang.

Mustang will open up the season with Choctaw on the road on Dec. 3. The Broncos come into the season as the No. 7 team in Class 6A in the preseason rankings.
