However, after drilling the Windsor Greyhounds 59-32 Friday night in a Kaysinger Conference game at Hughesville, the Mustangs climbed to within one game of the .500 mark in conference play.
Northwest improved to 6-12 overall and 3-4 in the conference with two league games left on the schedule. The six wins got the Mustangs within one game of last season’s seven wins.
Junior guard Cortlen Austin almost outscored the Greyhounds by himself, pumping in 29 points. Austin had a double-double with 12 rebounds to go with his three steals and three blocked shots.
For the season, Austin is averaging 18 points and 11 boards per game.
Quincy Wicker scored 10 points and made seven steals on the Mustangs’ Court Warming night.
