Marble Falls needs to get tougher and bear down on the dirty work.

That’s the perspective of coach Matt Bailey after the team broke for the holidays with a 5-9 record.

The Mustangs got bombed in their Tuesday home game against Fredericksburg, 60-42. The rival Billies hit nine 3-pointers, getting good looks over the Mustangs defense.

Five-foot-10 senior Tyler Kaman buried six 3-pointers, including three in the third quarter when Fredericksburg took control of the game. The Mustangs made five 3-pointers.

“We have to be tougher,’’ Bailey said. “That’s what we’re trying to learn. It’s something you have to want to as a player.’’

Frederickburg reserve Cole Jenskke was unconscious, making all three of his attempts on perimeter bombs. It was Jenskee that turned a competitive game into a Billie runaway.

He turned a 29-24 lead into a 35-24 advantage with back-to-back 3-pointers within 16 seconds.
