West Metro POW: Mustang's Jacob Strassle and David Glidden
The week couldn’t have gone much better for the Mustang boys basketball team. Well, the Broncos could’ve beaten No. 4 Putnam City last Tuesday, but finishing with road wins against No. 3 PC West and Choctaw made for a good weekend.
The win at PC West, spoiling Senior Night for the Patriots, was a total team effort. Jacob Strassle led the scoring effort with 20 points in the 91-88 double-OT victory. And David Glidden poured in 24 to lead the way in the 60-52 win over Choctaw. The efforts earned both players co-POW honors in the West Metro this week, as the Broncos picked up a couple victories that have some major significance.
Mustang opens the 6A playoffs against Choctaw in regional action at PC West on Feb. 26. The Broncos defeated Choctaw in the season opener as well. Should Mustang advance, it would likely face PC West, right back at the scene of last Friday’s crime.
In all, five players had at least 12 points for Mustang in the upset over the Pats, who in their previous two games had defeated No. 4 Putnam City and No. 1 Edmond Santa Fe. After Strassle’s 20, Glidden had 19 (six points and five assists in the two OT periods), Jacinto Biorato had 18 points, Tanner Bridges added 14 and Ben Berry had 12.
Glidden also had 27 points in a Monday victory over Edmond North. Busy week for the Broncos, but a good one.
Other POW contenders
PC West boys team: If it hadn’t been for Mustang spoiling their otherwise brilliant week, the Patriots would have earned the top honor. Even with the loss, they deserve recognition, and the whole team gets some credit in the two big wins over PC and Edmond Santa Fe. Tyler Neal was the leading scorer in both. Amric Fields played outstanding defense in the paint and still maintained his regular scoring output. Josiah Campbell and Marquis Green were defensive standouts, especially in slowing down Santa Fe’s Josh Richardson. And Kyndall Dudley was solid at the point.
