Gilman, Lindsay power Mustangs past Hawks

by Gunnar Davis

Coming off a big win against Greene County, the PCM Mustangs boys’ basketball looked to get another conference win when they traveled to South Hamilton to take on the Hawks on Jan. 16. The Mustangs got what they wanted, winning 69-32.
This being the second matchup between the two, the Mustangs knew what they had to do. Last time the two played it was early in the season, and the Mustangs survived a late fourth-quarter comeback from the Hawks, 61-52. This time the situation was much different, as the Mustangs jumped on South Hamilton early, taking a 35-8 halftime lead and continuing to build it right up until the final buzzer.
“The game went very, very well,” senior Ricky Reeve said. “In the first game, we didn’t really know how to play our defense really well, but the second time we played them, we played our defense like we were meant to, and it worked a lot better.”
Senior Trey Lindsay led the Mustangs with 16 points, six steals and four assists. Junior Logan Gilman also had 15 points. Sophomore Luke Greiner led with seven boards.
As of press time, the next game for the Mustangs will be at home on Jan.22 against Nevada with the girls starting at 6 p.m.
