Ross, Stone make Lady Steers dangerous from 3-point line

January 14, 2011

Big Spring guards Valerie Ross and Mackenzie Stone live behind the 3-point line.

The two await the moment defenses present an opportunity and leave one of them open, and once Ross and Stone get started, it’s hard to stop them.

“When me and Mackenzie are in, we just click,” Ross said. “It’s not competition, but when she makes one, I want to make one. It just helps us out.”

Howard women lose in OT, men edge NMJC

January 14, 2011

HOBBS, N.M. — The Howard College women’s basketball team scratched and clawed its way back into a tough game against New Mexico Junior College Thursday night, but ultimately, a few key turnovers doomed the Hawks in a 76-70 loss in overtime.

The Hawks (15-4, 1-1 in WJCAC play) were down by 10 deep into the second half, but made a push to tie the game at the end of regulation. The Lady T-Birds (15-3, 1-0) had a chance to steal the win with the last shot of the second half, but as soon as that was off the mark, Howard had a chance.

Show and Prove: District 5-3A play begins for Steers

January 14, 2011

After practice Thursday, Big Spring guard Luke Adams and boys’ basketball coach Cliff Thompson caught themselves in a conversation, mapping out different scenarios of how the Steers can clinch a playoff berth or, even better, win District 5-3A.

Actually, it’s been a recurring topic among the Steers this week.

Howard basketball in New Mexico for date with T-Birds

Howard women
Howard College women’s basketball head coach Earl Diddle believes New Mexico Junior College is the team to beat in the Western Junior College Athletic Conference.

There’s reason to believe him, too, the way he describes the Lady Thunderbirds.

“I really feel that they’re one of the top teams in the league,” Diddle said. “They beat South Plains by 20 in the (WJCAC Pre-Conference Tournament). They pose a lot of problems for us. They shoot the 3 well and they have very, very good inside play. So they pose a lot of problems for everyone in the league.”

Area livestock shows are b-a-a-a-a-ck

January 13, 2011

A little cold weather wasn't about to stop this hardy group of future farmers.

Despite frigid temperatures, the annual Howard County Junior Livestock Show began its annual run Wednesday at the county fair barns.

The show, which runs through Saturday, features 122 exhibitors showing 311 entries, a decrease of 84 animals from last year's show, officials said.

The most probable cause for the decrease, they said, was the economy. It costs several hundred dollars to care for and prepare an animal for livestock show presentation.
