Mustangs At A Glance

You’ll recognize the Mustangs’ head coach, former Orlando Magic star Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway, also the 1990 Tennessee Class AA Mr. Basketball winner at Memphis Treadwell. East’s roster under Hardaway, as you might guess, is loaded from top to bottom with young national-caliber talent and size, including 5-11 JR point guard Alex Lomax, 6-4 JR guard Terrance Moss and 6-8 SOPH center Chandler Lawson. … The Mustangs conquered previously unbeaten Blackman 46-41 in the state semifinals, then built an 18-point lead with 6:14 left in the 64-60 state-title victory over Cordova in Murfreesboro. Their only two losses in 2015-16 were by a combined three points.
