Former North High basketball star Alan Williams, now with the Phoenix Suns, came to a Mustangs game, December 1.  Williams played on back-to-back state championship teams with North, before going to UC Santa Barbara.  The Mustangs were taking on 2nd ranked Corona del Sol.  Williams talked to the players during halftime.  According to Coach Joe Bustos, he told the players to never stop playing their best effort, shoot the ball with confidence no matter what the score is and keep playing with intensity throughout the basketball season.  The team listened and made a comeback in the second half.  After being down by 28 points, the Mustangs cut the lead to 12 points with three minutes to go in the game.
