|River Oaks end season with loss to Brookhaven|
The River Oaks Mustangs (19-7, 7-3) ended their season last week with a loss to Brookhaven in the quarterfinals of the Mississippi Private School Association basketball playoffs.
The 64-42 win for Brookhaven propelled them on in the playoffs where they beat Chamberlin-Hunt Academy to claim their fifth straight Class 2A south-state championship.
The River Oaks game was tight in the beginning. The Mustangs trailed just 14-10 after the first quarter as Vincent Moore and Cody Trichell each scored four points.
Brookhaven went on a huge second-quarter run and took a 12-point advantage to the lockers at halftime.
Foul trouble and hot shooting from Brookhaven doomed the Mustangs in the second half of the game.
"We had a great season," River Oaks head coach Roger Stockton said. "We lost to some real good teams and also won some good ballgames as well."
One key factor in the loss was the size differential as Brookhaven towered over some of the Mustang players.
"I think they were just bigger and stronger than us," Stockton said. "That had a lot to do with it. We made some big plays too, but they played exceptional defense."
River Oaks lost to Brookhaven in their only meeting this season. District champion Trinity Episcopal and state runner-up Chamberlin-Hunt also beat the Mustangs twice. Class A state champion Riverdale claimed a pair of victories over River Oaks during the regular season.
The Mustangs will lose only four seniors. Will White, Cody Trichell, Corey Rung and Dillon Hart are graduating this May.
Eight players who will all be juniors return next season as well as six junior varsity players who will be counted on to add depth to the varsity squad in November 2009.
Leading scorer Vincent Moore will only be a junior next season in a storyline that could not be better for the Mustangs.
The junior varsity at River Oaks proved its worth this year with a 18-0 mark and a district title to their credit.
