For the first time since 1996, Mustang is headed to the state tournament.

The fifth-ranked Broncos pulled away for a 61-49 win over Moore in a Class 6A boys basksetball west area consolation game Saturday night at Choctaw.

Mustang trailed at one point in the third quarter, but outscored the Lions 20-9 in the fourth to put the game away.

Mustang got 18 points from junior guard Terrell Williams, while sophomore forward Austin Meyer added 16 and another sophomore, Jakolby Long, had 13.

Diontre Cutliff had 17 points to lead Moore, which made a strong late-season run, but fell one win short of the state tournament.

Mustang will face Bixby in the first round of the state tournament next Thursday at a location and time to be announced Sunday.
