January moved along at its own leisurely pace this year. So much so that it seems like it's been a couple of months since I last shot the Mustangs. But in fact, I shot these two games on the 16th and 18th of the month. The only things that matter in high school hoops if you want a chance at the playoffs are league games and the varsity boys Mustangs have 10 of them. Elk Grove and Davis were games 3 and 4 of the 10 game stretch and unfortunately, the Mustangs lost both. The latter was in a 96-91 overtime shootout where Davis' plan of action was to press and get shots up as soon as possible. At the time of publishing, Monterey Trail is currently 0-7 in league play. Hopefully they can get a W before the season ends. In the meantime, check out this photographic recap of two of those games. Shout out to fast paced hoops. Coaches like to run, run, run in pre-season for a reason!
