Brady Bohe led four different Mustangs in double figures as he connected on 7-of-15 from the field, including 3-of-4 from three, on his way to 20 points. Dalton Anderson hit 7-of-11 for 17 points, 10 rebounds and three steals, Brady Dicks hit 8-of-13 for 17 points to go with five steals, Dillon Anderson had 10 points, two assists and two steals, and Rigo Johnson had eight points, eight assists and three steals.
The Mustangs shot .500 from the floor at 31-of-62 and made 5-of-13 from three and 10-of-13 at the line.
Sioux Central hung close in the early going, trailing just 14-13 after one quarter of play. The Mustangs responded by pushing their advantage to 33-23 by half time and 52-36 after three.
The Rebels saw their two-game win streak snapped in the loss, their first in the new year.
Austin Glawe again led the way, turning in a game-high 22 on 8-of-16 shooting. He was 6-of-7 at the line and added 11 boards, two assists, two steals and two blocks. Dallas Heuton added 10 points and five rebounds, Tim Saunders 10 points and four rebounds, Chris Ripke nine points and Christian Sylvester seven points and five assists.
Sioux Central hit 24-of-40 from the floor, 2-of-6 from three and 8-of-13 at the line.
"I thought we really showed a lot of toughness and tenacity on the road against a very good team," said Sioux Central head coach Steve Tjaden. "We gave up a few big stretches which didn't allow us to cut closer, but this was a step in the right direction in the grand scheme of things."
The Rebels now sit at 3-7 on the season and will look to bounce back against a winless Southeast Webster squad Friday night.
Meanwhile the Mustangs will play up a couple of classes tonight as they put their win steak on the line against Estherville-Lincoln Central (4-6). They remain at home Friday night against Prairie Valley.
