The Mustang Broncos used an 18-2, game-ending run to defeat the Edmond North Huskies, 65-60 at home on Monday.

Mustang’s guard-play dominated Deer Creek’s Bruce Gray Invitational over the weekend, however, it was the Broncos’ bigs that took care of business against the Huskies.

Forwards, Geoff Hightower and Austin Meyer, each turned in a double-double on Monday, Hightower leading the way to start the game with Mustang’s first six points on a top-of-the-arc three-pointer and an old-fashioned, three-point play.

Hightower and Meyer combined for 12 points in the first half and combined with Isaiah Hammons’ eight points in the second quarter, the Broncos entered halftime with a 33-30 lead.

Meyer took over in the second half, going for 10 points and 11 rebounds in the final 16 minutes. He also blocked two shots down the stretch as the Broncos’ defense proved to be the difference in the final two quarters.

Mustang held Edmond North to just 11 points in the third and extended its lead to four going into the final quarter. However, midway through the period, the Huskies grabbed a 58-57 lead before Hightower and Meyer led Mustang’s 18-2 run to end the contest.

The two bigs combined for seven points in the final eight minutes and also grabbed seven boards. Demarion Love and Terrell Williams also chipped in four apiece down the stretch as the Broncos held the Huskies to two points in the final three minutes on the way to their fifth straight win.

Meyer finished with 14 points and 17 rebounds while Hightower finished with 14 and 11. Williams poured in 11 points and two assists, Love scored eight and Jakolby Long chipped in three points and two boards to round out the Broncos’ starting unit.

Hammons led the bench with 10 points and five rebounds while Chandler Garrett, Binky Colbert and Dylan Snyder combined for five points and three rebounds.

The Broncos moved to 13-3 with the win and will host the Choctaw Yellow Jackets on homecoming, Friday at 7:30 p.m.
