LIVONIA, Mich. -- The Mustangs (0-6, 0-2 WHAC) did not receive any favors in the scheduling department to usher in their era as new members of the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) after opening up at No. 11 Davenport and following that with a road tilt at Madonna – a team that received votes in this week's NAIA Top-25 poll.
On Tuesday (Nov. 20), the Mustangs visited the Crusaders (5-1, 2-0 WHAC) three days after Madonna upset NAIA No. 25 Indiana Tech to open conference play.
Once again, the Mustangs had an unlucky night offensively as the team fell short of hitting 30% from the field opposed to Madonna's 56.7% in the 92-42 loss.
Bobby Naubert – reigning WHAC Player of the Week – and Tyler Schuba led the Crusaders.
Freshman point guard Diante Taylor (Battle Creek, Mich./Battle Creek) had a team-high 10 points for the Mustangs. Taylor was followed by Manny Washington (Dearborn, Mich./Edsel Ford) who tallied nine points. Kevin Dunaj (Warren, Mich./Cousino) finished with eight points, while Cameron Coburn (Bay City, Mich./All Saints) and Jordan Al (Dearborn, Mich./Dearborn) chipped in seven and six points respectively.
The Mustangs return home for a non-conference contest against NCAA DIII Adrian College Saturday (Nov. 24) at 3 p.m. The game will be preceded by a junior varsity contest against Adrian at 1 p.m.
