  1. What are his college prospects??? I was on the broadcast and didn't get to chat with Coach Welsh after the game to ask him.
  2. Brossart comes from an early game deficit of 20-8 after one quarter, rally late, and defeat visiting Henry County 68-64 on Brossart Senior Day. We witnessed a really, really good big man in Henry County Senior Trevor Hardin who laid 17 points on us before the fans were comfortable in their seats. He would score 32 points on the day to lead all scorers, and caused us trouble on both ends of the floor. Hardin scored his 2,000th Point at the 4:36 mark of the first quarter. He also wowed the crowd with a trio of tomahawk slam dunks. Teammate Sam Royalty contributed 13 points. Brossart Senior Carson Schirmer countered with 27 points, while moving into 12th Place among all-time Brossart leading scorers. Robbie Verst netted 14, David Govan 12, and Mason Sepate 10. With the win the Mustangs improve to 12-9 on the season, have won 6 of our last 7, and amazingly 5 of 6 since losing the services of our leading scorer, Stephen Verst. We remain hot from the free-throw line, knocking down 27 of 31. The Mustangs will host Calvary Christian on Monday night which will determine the bracket for the upcoming 37th District Tournament.
  3. Has put up double-figures in three of his last four outings. Not bad for a kid who did not play his freshman year due to injury, and missed the majority of this year with a broken foot. He won't be flying under the radar for long.
  4. Mustangs jump out to a 15-0 lead out of the gate in this one. Augusta narrowed the margin to 25-18 by halftime, but the Mustangs held sway, outscoring he visitors 37-33 in the second half to notch our 11th win of the season against 9 losses. Augusta completes their regular season play at 10-10. In the game Brossart's Carson Schirmer led all scorers with 18, connecting on 8 of 8 from the FT line, giving him 28 of 31 in a twenty-four hour span. Robbie Verst nailed five 3-pointers along with a deuce for 17 points. David Govan recorded back-to-back double-doubles by scoring 14 and pulling down 11 rebounds. Augusta's Kason Kinson answered with 17, Riley Mastin 16 and Chase Archibald 10. Brossart won the JV game 42-37. The Mustangs host Henry County Saturday afternoon as we honor our five seniors. Varsity game time is 4:30pm.
  5. You have a short memory, failing to remember the debacle that took place in the second half last year in Latonia, where the Mustangs also shot 38 free-throws. What went down in Alexandria was that one pretty talented player, put his short-handed team on his back, challenged his opponents to stop him, and he netted 45 points. What it took to win on this night.
  6. Exciting night for Brossart basketball. Without the services of Stephen Verst it was doubtful that our "makeshift" lineup would be able to generate enough points to compete with the prolific Holy Cross Indians who had scored 82 points twenty-four hours previous. Brossart had the hot hand in the first quarter, knocking home five 3-pointers and took a 22-13 early game lead. The Tribe returned the favor in the second stanza, outscoring the home team 26-14 to take a 39-36 to the locker-room at halftime. At the half Jacob Meyer, Holy Cross' super soph, led all scorers with 21, Brossart's Carson Schirmer had 13 and Robbie Verst 12. In the second half Carson Schirmer put his team on his shoulders and challenged the Indians to stop him, resulting in his scoring six field goals and hitting on 17 of 20 free-throw attempts, for a composite 45 points on the night, leading his team to an 86-77 quality win. By scoring 45 points, Carson Schirmer eclipses the "43 points in a game" school record, set by Greg Schwegmann back in 1970. He finished the night with 20 of 23 from the free-throw line, topping a thirty year old school record held by Ralph Kroger at 18 makes in a game. Schirmer also passed three members of our 1,000 Points Club, moving into 15th place among all-time Brossart scorers. Schirmer's outburst over-shadowed a superb 32 point performance by Jacob Meyer. Blake Robinson added 15, Jeremiah Hicks 13, and Brandon McClendon 11. In addition to Schirmer, Robbie Verst netted 18 and David Govan 10 for the Mustangs. The Mustangs continue on our seven game home stand, hosting the Augusta Panthers on Wednesday night in Alexandria. Our JVs failed to notch their fifth consecutive win, falling 53-45 to the JV Indians in overtime.
  7. Michael Miller's envisioned dream fulfilled!!! Miller moved the Red and White Tigers from Division III to Division II in hopes of elevating the program through tougher competition and a stronger schedule. He took a lot of abuse for it, because the Tigers were rolling merrily along, winning D-III championships on an annual basis. If memory serves me correctly they did not win a D-II game until 2014. NKAC competition is a funny thing. It's there but few people, coaches, teams pay any attention to it, unless you are in contention to win it, then it becomes important to you. NKAC DivII - Beechwood, Brossart, Highlands, Holy Cross, Holmes, NCC, Newport, St. Henry. Lloyd was also a D-II member for most of those years, but dropped out to join a softer primarily 8th Region conference. Congrats to Erik and the Tigers in getting one. Michael Miller would be proud.
  8. Scott the better team on this night in Alexandria. Intense defense prevented the Mustangs to function offensively early on, trailing 33-19 at the half, after being outscored 23-12 in the second period. The Mustangs fared better, mustering 32 points in the second half, four less than Scott put up. As has been the trend, Scott knocked home eight three-pointers on the night. The home team hit four. The Eagles struggled from the free-throw line, converting merely 5 of 15, but the Mustangs were only able to gain a two point advantage at 7 for 10. Scott only had five scorers but four of them produced double figures. Grant Profitt 20, Riley Huff 16, Brayden Howell 14, and Cameron Patterson 10. Brossart countered with Carson Schirmer scoring 16, Mason Sepate 15, and David Govan 12. With the win Scott earns the 37th District top seed. Brossart has yet to play Calvary Christian, which will determine if we play Campbell County with a win, or a re-match with Scott with a loss. That game will be played on Monday, March 8th. Brossart will host Holy Cross next Tuesday and Augusta on Wednesday. The All-Sophomore (plus one freshman) JV team continued on its hot streak, winning our sixth game in seven outings, 39-30 over the Eagle JVs.
  9. Jim Conner actually went from NCC to Boone County for a few seasons before moving on to TMC.
  10. Rumors of the Brossart Mustangs untimely demise, following the loss of Senior Captain Stephen Verst appear to be greatly exaggerated. The "Makeshift Mustangs" outplayed Harrison County to the tune of a twenty point, 68-48 victory Thursday night in Alexandria. Sophomore Robbie Verst, Stephen's kid brother, picked up the slack left by his brother's injury, as he stepped up, nailed four second quarter 3-Pointers and finished the night as the leading scorer with 21 points in only his sixth career high school game at any level. Old standards David Govan and Carson Schirmer put up 18 and 15 respectively, as the Mustangs improve their season record to 9-8. The Breds had no double-figure scorers. After trailing 15-11 at the end of the first quarter, the Mustangs topped the Breds 25-12, 16-10, and 16-11 at the three remaining quarter stops. Brossart hosts Scott in a key district seeding battle Friday night in Alexandria. The Brossart JVs, who started the season at 1-6, have now won five of their last six, defeating Harrison County 40-37 in overtime. Brandon Bezold and Sam Willike shared leading scorer honors with 13 each, while Braylon Hinton paced the Breds with 14.
  11. I too was surprised that the same crew did both games. I/We had no issues with the officials in the girls game and I only stayed for a quarter of the boys game. The only grossly bad foul call in the boys game that I saw benefitted Justin Becker from Robertson County I also thought the Brossart boys got a fair shake in our game with Lewis County in Vanceburg.
  12. Considering 100% to be Stephen and Robbie Verst, Schirmer, Govan, Sepate, Clines and Smorey, plus our varsity sophomores, that answer would be no. The closest we would have come would have been the first quarter vs Bourbon County before Govan re-injured his ankle. Ironically, last year's team which went 25-7 NEVER had a starter miss a start.
  13. Good therapy win for our Mustangs on the road Tuesday night in Vanceburg, after earlier in the day losing the services of our point guard and leading scorer, Senior Stephen Verst, to a broken radial bone in his elbow, sustained Monday night at home vs Pendleton County. Carson Schirmer joined the Brossart 1,000 Points Club in the first quarter when he collected his seventh point, en-route to 23 on the night. Brossart led 16-15 after a quarter and 31-26 at the halt, but fell behind by 10 points at 45-35 late in the third period. We were able to whittle that margin back to 5 with 8 minutes to play in the game. Down the stretch the Lions took the lead 57-55, which was immediately answered by a 3-pointer by Robbie Verst, giving the Mustangs the road win. Carson Schirmer led all scorers with 23, David Govan added 14, and Mason Sepate 13. On the night the Mustangs dropped in 8 3-pointers. Schirmer and Sepate nailed three 3-pointers apeice. Logan Liles paced the Lions who are ow 8-8 on the season with 17 points. Trey Gerike added 16. The Mustangs get a much needed day of practice on Wednesday before hosting Harrison County on Thursday and Scott on Friday.
  14. Early on, it appeared that the Mustangs would have their way with the visiting Pendleton County Wildcats, opening up a 20-8 lead after a period of play and pushed that lead to 15 in the second period, before momentum climbed in bed with the Cats, who began a gradual resurgence, which resulted in a three point deficit after three, and a two point shortcoming with only 12 seconds to play in the game. The Wildcats who came to town shooting merely 29% from beyond the arc, and managed only 1 of 12 against Scott earlier this week, netted nine of them here on the Avenue of Champions. Brossart countered by hitting 24 of 35 free throws, giving them a 17 point advantage from that venue. Stephen Verst scored a career high 32 points that included four 3-pointers, and Carson Schirmer 16 for the Mustangs. Treyden Thomas led the Cats with 27. Noah Barnard hit five 3-pointers, and Braydon Kidwell three of them , while scoring 13. Brossart moves on to Lewis County Tuesday night where Carson Schirmer (needs six) is expected to become the 19th player in Brossart Boys history to join the 1,000 Points Club. The Brossart JVs won 34-27, their third win in their last four outings.
