“They are a good team. We will have to play well to win,” Mustang coach Scott Hodges said of Owasso, which played in Mustang’s Cornerstone Holiday Classic on Dec. 26-28.
The Rams, coached by former Oklahoma State player Brian Montonati, were in three tight games. They beat Westmoore (54-51) but lost to Midwest City (53-56) and Putnam City (47-49).
