From Coach Wes Crump:
The 2016-2017 basketball season was an extremely exciting and successful one for the MUS Owls. We were involved in many close games throughout the season and were fortunate enough to win the majority of them. We had a few last second buckets to either win or send the games into overtime. We went into double overtime to beat Arlington in the semifinals of the Blue Streak Holiday Tournament at St. Louis, then went on to handily beat Cordova and win the championship.
Next, we went undefeated in the regular season of the Shelby League and earned the number one seed in the tournament. We then beat ECS 47-22 in the finals to cap off a wonderful season for us all and finished with a record of 19-3. Each of our three losses were by three or less points.
Finally, I want to remark about these young men and how they came together as brothers throughout this season; I'm so very thankful and grateful for them. They played their hardest every practice and every game for our school and for each other. They are a fine example of what's great about MUS.
