Murrah's Emotions Riding High...Walton Falls in Top-10 Battle

Murrah's emotions were riding high last night as they played in their first game since a tragic car accident took the life of one of their teammates and injured 3 others. After taking a moment of silence for the passing of friend and teammate Chris Ulmer, Murrah got off to a slow start, trailing 33-19 at halftime. But this was not going to be a night of losing for the Mustangs, because they had lost enough in the past week. Even without Dandy Dozen guard Dundrecous Nelson, who suffered a skull fracture in the car accident, the Mustangs found a way to win, defeating Jim Hill 77-75 in overtime last night. Murrah was propelled by LaQuinton Ross' 33 points. This young man is arguably the best player in the 2011 class.

Murrah is now 11-10 and LaQuinton Ross is averaging 23.7ppg.

Last night was a battle between giants. It was a faceoff between #5 Walton and #7 Lassiter. A couple unexpected things took place in the game: Walton was defeated 61-58 and Ryan Harrow was held to a season-low: 13 points. I talked to Ryan after the game and he was in the hospital. Apparently during the game he caught a vicious elbow to the temple that caused his eye to swell up. I told him I would be praying for him and he assured me he was ok. I'll give Ryan a buzz later today to make sure he is doing alright.

Walton is now 13-7 (5-4) on the year and Harrow is averaging 29.2ppg.
