The Longhorn basketball team travels to Heber Mogollon today, Nov. 29, basking in the success of a 68-41 season-opening win over Globe and a stellar performance in a preseason scrimmage at Winslow. As good as the Horns have been, however, the team will find the homestanding Mustangs a capable and determined opponent. Proof tiny Mogollon High is capable of playing against bigger schools surfaced Nov. 22 when the Mustangs whipped Show Low 72-65 in overtime. Rendering the final score a bit skewed was the fact Show Low was shorthanded because some of its team members were still playing on the football team that had reached the state tournament finale. But even if the Cougars had those players available, they would still have had their paws full vs. gutsy Mogollon.
