Itâ€™s all about consistently gaining confidence as the Big Spring girls basketball team approaches tournaments in December and district play in January.
As far away as that seems, every game until then counts.
â€śI think the last two years weâ€™ve been playing with younger girls,â€ť Big Spring head coach Mike Warren said. â€śLast year they competed at a high level and I think itâ€™s time for them to start enjoying some of the rewards of that hard work weâ€™ve been doing for two years.â€ť

Big Spring Independent School District officials still have some construction bonds to sell. How they will sell the bonds has become a matter for discussion.
In September, BSISD trustees decided to hold off on selling almost $7 million of the $63 million in construction bonds authorized by voters. The unsold amount, which totaled $6.7 million, was held in abeyance to see if it could qualify under a special federal program which features extra-low interest rates.

FORSAN â€” The Forsan girlsâ€™ basketball team got the win in its season opener against Garden City, but head coach Robert Hillger is hoping the jitters his players had in that first game are nowhere to be found tonight.
The Lady Buffs are on the road against Grady at 4 p.m. today in Lenorah. Theyâ€™re coming off a close 39-37 win against Garden City.
That game was good for the Lady Buffs, however. Hillger said a lot of lessons come from close games.
