After an 0-2 start with losses to No. 2 Putnam City and No. 7 Putnam City North, the Mustang boys turned the season around quickly.
The Broncos have won five straight games, including a championship at the Harrah Tournament and Friday's win over No. 9 Edmond North.
New coach Terry Long is utilizing a bevy of young talent, with the freshmen and two sophomores seeing time in the starting lineup.
“The coaching transition was pretty easy, because Coach Long teaches a lot of the same stuff (as former coach Alan Green), he just teaches it in a different style,” said senior guard Garrett Goble, one of the few returning experienced players.
“We only have three seniors, and we have a lot of new faces this year. There's a lot of people taking interest in the team. People want to come see us play, and I like that.”
The Broncos are off until opening play at the Mid-Del Holiday Tournament Dec. 27.
BETHANY LOOKING TO RUN MORE
As the Bethany Bronchos try to replace a large group of talented seniors from last season, coach Phil Brown will try to utilize the athletic ability of this year's roster.
That starts with a couple of tall, athletic players in 6-foot-7 Josh Lout and 6-foot-4 Tanner Stiles.
