Of course, he was hoping his team would be the one to dish it out when Big Spring faced the Lady Bulldogs on the road to open District 5-3A.
Things didnâ€™t work out so well for them thanks to Peyton Little and company, but the second meeting between the two teams at 6 p.m. today in Steer Gym may be the best chance to score that upset.
A bad shooting night didnâ€™t stop Howard College from stealing a win on the road at Western Texas College Monday. But nights like those canâ€™t happen against teams like Odessa.

Odessa had three players in double figures. Kiaherra Powell was hard to stop in the paint with 15 and Takoia Larry and Clarissa Davis had 14 apiece.
