Muscatine gave the Mt. Pleasant boys basketball team a little bit of their own medicine….good three point shooting. Usually it’s the Panthers burying the long shot but last night on their home court M.P. hit for just 3-3’s while Muscatine dropped in 8 in a 60-36 loss. Mt. Pleasants leading scorers Trey Magnani and Zach Mulford were held to 6 points total by Muscatine’s defense. Pat Canby led the Panther scoring with 9 points, Brandon Sanchez scored 6 and Beau Parkevich 5.
The Mt. Pleasants next game is Friday at league foe Keokuk.
