Men's Basketball - Mustangs sweep St. Mary on Senior Night
2/12/2020 8:36 AM

With all its success this year, there’s no doubt this year’s senior class has carried the load for McCracken County.

So, with the regular season winding down for the Mustangs, who beat St. Mary 69-33 on Tuesday night, which was senior night at Strawberry Hills Pharmacy Arena, now isn’t the time to lose focus.

“We need to lock in, practice and take stuff seriously,” said McCracken senior forward Ramon Heard, who had a game-high 13 points. “And just be ready and give it our all.”

For the second of McCracken’s three seniors, Ronnie Jones – whose 18th birthday was Tuesday – the senior night victory was an ample present.

“It’s pretty cool, actually,” said Jones, who “I had my dad (Ronnie Jones, Sr.) here. He kind of almost started tearing up (during the pregame ceremony). Right now, we’re just still keeping our (team) chemistry together on and off the court. And (we’re) moving the ball and seeing the open person, and keeping our defense good.”
