Muir first-year coach Gamal Smalley put together a nice season preview of the Mustangs basketball program this season.
Muir is young this year. The Mustangs start one senior, one junior, two sophomores and a freshman. But they were more than enough to help Muir (4-4) snap its four-game losing streak with a 61-58 win over Compton Dominguez in the Upland Tournament on Tuesday night. Dominguez is a 10-time CIF champion and 5-time CIF State champion. Junior forward Deshawn Hayes led the way with 28 points. “Our goal is to get better game by game and to get ready for league play,” Smalley said.
