Dallas, Texas – In an easy landslide victory on Wednesday night at Moody Coliseum the Mustangs defeated the Colonels 86-42. The Mustangs were short handed with three of their players out with injuries, including regular starter Marcus Kennedy (ankle), but that didn’t slow things down. With only seven players, the Mustangs played a fast paced game and maintained a leading score for the entire game.
