AUSTIN, Texas -- For the third year in a row the Mumford boys basketball team is playing on the final day of the season. Tomorrow morning the Mustangs play Muenster with a state title on the line.

The Mustangs did not play very well in the first half, but rallied from ten points down to beat Smyer by 11 in the 1A Division I state semifinals Thursday.

The next challenge is the Muenster Hornets, who beat Grapeland 65-64 in their semifinal match-up.

The Hornets will have the height advantage Saturday, featuring four players on their roster 6'4" or above.

Mumford has followed impressive state seminal wins with disappointing state championship game losses the last two seasons, 80-54 to Dallas Triple A Academy in 2013 and 65-47 to Clarksville in 2012. They hope to reverse the trend after not playing their best on Thursday.

Head coach Chris Sodek said, "I told them in the locker room the last two years we came out the first day just firing on all cylinders then we got beat in the state championship game. I'm not superstitious or anything but maybe we'll come out playing better Saturday, because if we don't we'll be wearing the second place medal again."

The Mustangs and Hornets meet at 8:30 a.m. at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin.
