McKeon, Mustangs fight among top teams in district
The Sachse kids basketball group had 3 huge games to keep speed in the District 9-6A standings.
They relied precisely on what they have all year – exceptional guard play from their beginners. The Mustangs backcourt put in some strong performances to get 3 wins and advance to a three-way tie for second place in the standings. Sachse started the week returning from an early deficit to knock off Rowlett 67-50 on Jan. 19.
The Mustangs dropped early by a score of 13-9 after the first quarter. Having a hard time to score early on in the very first quarter, Sachse’s offense came alive scoring 58 points in the last 3 quarters to come back and get the success. Three players scored in double figures for Sachse, led by shooting guard Dylan McKeon with 15 points, while Kai Smith added 11 and Ethan Dunnam scored 10. The loss moved the Eagles back to 0-6 in district play, as they had a hard time to get stops against Sachse in the 2nd half.
