4 Players score in double figures but it wasn’t enough to overcome Evansville Mater Dei. Ben Varner, Braden Henning and Tyler Walls all had 10 points each and Sam Thomas chipped in 23 in the 82 to 60 lose to Mater Dei. First half the Mount Vernon Wildcats kept it close but in the second half break out baskets against MV’s pressure defense and turnovers against Mater Dei’s 2-2-1 3/4 court press defense was the difference. The Wildcats have a busy weekend in which they play Boonville at home Friday and travel to South Spencer on Saturday. Come out and support the Wildcats!
