On Tuesday night, Houston had balance offensively and simply found a mismatch on the court in its 68-49 win over Southwind to clinch its second straight 15-AAA District Tournament Championship.

The Mustangs have had the luxury all season long of being able to have three or more players to score in double figures. They haven’t had to run their offense through one player to score.

Heading into the regional tournament, it will be a plus for Houston’s run to Murfreesboro, TN.

Here are 3 observations from the Mustangs’ win over the Jaguars:

Houston found a mismatch all night against Southwind

The Mustangs already had the size advantage over the Jaguars. Houston’s starting five features a 6-foot-2 point guard and four other players that are 6-6, 6-7 and 6-8 (2). Junior guard T.J. Madlock was able to post up senior guard Vincent Thomas all night. Senior forward Faizon Fields was all over the boards. Junior wings Alden Applewhite, Mason Miller and Zander Yates were able to see over their defenders for any shot they wanted to take.

Southwind couldn’t match the Mustangs’ size and as a result, Houston had its way with the Jaguars. It was close in the first half.
