Mount Vernon got a great early season win against a tough Lanier team in a tough, grind it out style game by a final score of 49-45.
This one was close the entire way, but senior wing Xavier Shegog gave the Mustangs a huge boost with his energy and finishing ability. Forwards Dennis Scott III and Keith Williams had some big buckets down the stretch and senior guard Ashton Patterson ran the show well.
Lanier junior forward Jayce Nathaniel was terrific for Lanier in the loss. He went for 21 points and continues to show his development and improved versatility on the offensive end.
