The 1990 4A State Champion North Mustangs Basketball team was honored at halftime of the AIA Division I State Championship game, March 2. Here is the script read during the presentation:

In 1990, the North Mustangs were preparing for a two-year run at the state title. The man in charge of North was a very dedicated and beloved coach in the Phoenix Union District, Hector “Coach B” Bejerano. The 1990 squad was young, but it could run and play defense like no other team in the state that year. North went on to defeat Tempe High 49-43 in the 1990 Class 4A final to win the program’s second ever title, finishing with a 23-6 record.

The basketball community lost Coach Bejerano in 2009, but his sons, Hector Jr, Steve and Michael were present, as well as several members of that championship team: Ammon Adams; Eric De La Garza; Brian Gilliam; Wade Chaffin; Robert Hammons; Terrance Hunter; Frank Jose; Ansel Styles; Michael Wiley; Assistant coach Michael Lopez and Assistant coach Lloyd Willis.
