The Iola Mustangs put behind an ugly first quarter and rallied for a 75-66 win in Monday night’s Pioneer League match against Santa Fe Trail.
After two 20-point victories against Chanute and Osawatomie last week, the Mustangs appeared disengaged in the game’s early goings.
“We came out here the same way we came out in practice the other day, which looks like a junior high team that has never played before,” Iola head coach Luke Bycroft said. “We had no energy, defensively we weren’t moving, and it was the same on the offensive end, too. We were literally standing on both ends of the court for the entire first quarter.”
