South Border boys hoops fall 50-39 to Glen Ullin/Hebron

Jan. 5—JAMESTOWN — The South Border High School boys' basketball team got out to a quick 12-2 lead before the Glen Ullin/Hebron Bearcats battled back to take the lead and they rode that to a 50-39 win on Friday, Jan. 5, at the Jamestown Civic Center.

The Mustangs (3-5) had their early 10-point lead erased by a big run from the Bearcats (7-1) who took their first lead of the day at 17-16 on a Dalton Schneider three. The Mustangs were able to cut the deficit to 20-18 before the Bearcats were able to take a 28-18 lead late in the second quarter.

"I thought we were moving the ball well," Mustangs head coach Corey Bader said. "Everyone was involved, we were rotating good. We were hitting some big time shots and that's something we have struggled on the last couple games but I thought our movement was very well."

The halftime break did little to slow down the Bearcats who were able to stretch the lead out to double digits for the majority of the third quarter including 45-31 at the end of the third. The Mustangs were able to cut it to 10 at 47-37 but a Bearcats three quickly erased any momentum they had gained.

Bearcats head coach Bruce Schatz said his team started slowly because they were adjusting after the long drive but responded to the challenge that he and his assistants gave them.

"We just switched defense and told them to get after it or we're gonna get beat," Schatz said. "The boys stepped up themselves and decided they wanted to play. They did it, I didn't."

The Mustangs are back in action at noon on Saturday, Jan. 6, when they take on Midway/Minto.
