Mustangs get gritty victory

Monte Vista High star Trevor John, center left, found the going tough inside in the unbeaten Mustangs' 41-38 win over visiting De La Salle on Jan. 17 in East Bay Athletic League boys basketball action. On this first-quarter attempt, John gets blocked by, from left, De La Salle's Patrick Marr, Nikhil Peters and Devin Asiasi. John had a game-high 15 points, and the Mustangs improved to 4-0 in the EBAL and 16-0 overall.
