CMW basketball season has begun.  The basketball team has played in two scrimmages. The first scrimmage was against Hereford.  It was a rough game to start but as the second half rolled around, the teams energy started to pick up causing an electric third quarter.  Everyone was cheering and chanting.  The CMW bench was loud and proud chanting, “Defense!” and going crazy for every three-pointer made.  The basketball team ended up winning by ten with a score of 65-55.    

Next, they played Havre De Grace which was also a rough game.  The Mustangs went down 10 – 17 during the first quarter.  The second quarter was a completely different story.  The Mustangs outscored the Warriors 16-2 in the second quarter.  The Mustangs outscored the Warriors in 4 out of the 5 quarters.  

Senior forward, Byre Hopkins says, “In both games we just played the worst basketball you will ever see in the first quarter of both games.” 

He thinks that if the team can pick up their first quarter play than they can be a dangerous team.  He speaks about the team very often and speaks very highly of them.   

After traveling to Kenwood High School and then to Catonsville Community College, the Mustangs prevailed and came out 2-0.  The Mustangs beat a scrappy Kenwood team 65-57.  Their third and fourth quarter play allowed the Mustangs to pull away and gain a bigger lead.  On Saturday, the Mustangs traveled to Catonsville Community College to participate in the IAABO Board 23 Challenge.   

On December 11th, the Mustangs traveled to Husky territory to compete against Patterson Mill.  The end score of the game was 77-41.  The Mustangs dominated the Huskies in almost every aspect of the game. Pushing the tempo on transition and playing tough defense led to this win. Jalen Jackson ended the game with 17 points.  He caught fire midway through the second quarter and the rim looked like an ocean to him.
