The Mora boys basketball squad (20-4) has endured a hard patch of injuries the past few weeks with starting guards Max Sampson and Gage Braiedy, with ankle and hip injuries respectively. The injuries have exposed some vulnerabilities against Granite Ridge Conference foes like Zimmerman, losing 68-60, Albany, losing 46-45, and losing to Milaca 65-52 since Jan. 26. Optimistically, it has given the bench a lot more minutes to improve the depth of an already dominant team leading into Section 6AA play, which starts Thursday, March 9. Players like Josh Heggernes, Madox Balmer and Cole Schwarzbauer gained valuable minutes, helping the Mustangs score 8.3 points per game off the bench or when Sampson and/or Braiedy were unable to play.
