Congratulations to Detroit Mumford Lady Mustangs capturing its first-ever PSL title at Calihan Hall on Friday with a thrilling 60-58 win over Renaissance.
The feeling of winning your first championship, “I’m on cloud nine,” Mumford head coach Kareem Hogan said in the midst of a wild celebration after the game.
The Lady Mustangs fought back from an eight point deficit late in the third quarter, to start the fourth only down by five. “Our defensive pressure was relentless,” Hogan said. “That turned the game for us. The girls definitely played hard.” Mumford then used a 9-0 run to take a 50-48 lead with 5:30 remaining.
With 2:58 remaining, and the game tied at 52-52, Mumford junior Tiara Earnest and Williams hits back-to-back 3-pointers - giving Mumford a 58-52 lead.
Williams finished with a game-high 21 points and Earnest scored 11 points to lead the way for Mumford (16-3).
