The Lakewood Ranch boys basketball squad is the area's Cinderella team as we head into the district finals Friday night.
The Mustangs pulled off the upset of the year when it knocked off top seed Seminole Osceola on the road Wednesday night.
But was it really an upset?
The key for the Mustangs has been the return of double-double man, 6-6 senior Brian Cobb, who missed 22 games this season because of a torn ACL. He averaged 15 points and 10 rebounds last season.
Cobb says he is only at 70 percent, but 70 percent of Cobb is better than 100 percent of most players. He has also injected confidence in his teammates and gotten them better shots now that defense have to concentrate on him.
In two post season games, Cobb has 31 points and 25 rebounds. the Mustangs are at Palmetto Friday night in district championship game. The Tigers will be favorites, but if you include the Cobb factor have to like Mustangs chances.
