Despite starting the season with back-to-back losses, the Mustangs have a chance to rebound after Thanksgiving break against Burnet on Dec. 3. Senior Brenden Sapp (23) will be a big part of the Mustangs' efforts to get on track this season.

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.”

Marble Falls basketball falls to Rouse

The Marble Falls basketball teams slipped further down the district rankings with losses against the Rouse Raiders on Tuesday night.

Lady Mustangs

The Lady Mustangs (8-17, 2-6 in district) slipped to fifth place in the district after their 53-45 loss on the road. Raiders offensive rebounds prevented Marble Falls from keeping the game within reach in the fourth quarter.

Head coach John Berkman said the rebounding woes were persistent through the game, but the fourth quarter is where the Mustangs really felt the effects.

“If we had been better rebounding the whole game, we could've limited their scoring opportunities and had a favorable margin going into the fourth,” he said. “If you don't take care of those things early, they tend to hang around and get you in the end.”
