A game-tying three-point shot by junior Tate Deering missed the mark just before the final buzzer in the Marble Falls Mustangs' 72-69 loss to San Marcos Home School on Tuesday, Nov. 26 at Max Copeland Gym.

The Mustangs (0-2) trailed by 16 points at halftime after a shaky start on the offensive side of the ball.

“We're still very much a work in progress,” Mustangs Head Coach Travis Crain said. “You can do it in practice, but when the ball goes up against another team, it takes some time to find what's working.”

With the conclusion of the football and cross country seasons, the Marble Falls boys basketball team has a full roster to begin final preparations for their 2019-2020 campaign.

Several key players for the Mustangs, including senior Josh Whitecotton and sophomore Connor Chase, play other fall sports, and the Mustangs' practices have been limited to honing the fundamentals while first year Head Coach Travis Crain waited for the rest of the team.

“We're excited to get everything going and get everyone over here,” he said. “We finally have everyone, and it's an exciting time for the Marble Falls Mustangs basketball team.”
