WELLSVILLE — Coaches emphasize the little things.It’s what they do. Iola Mustangs head coach Luke Bycroft is no different. 

Wellsville stood at the charity stripe ahead by one with 22 seconds remaining. Although the Eagles’ first attempt of a 1-and-1 rimmed out, the Mustangs couldn’t capitalize. Iola failed to secure the rebound off the miss, allowing the Eagles an extra chance at the line. Wellsville made both, and escaped with a 67-64 win over the Mustangs. 

Ultimately, the Mustangs’ lack of preventing second-chance points was their downfall.
