One and done: Steers bow out of playoffs

February 22, 2012

EASTLAND — The Big Spring Steers' trip through the 2012 basketball playoffs was brief and, at times, painful.

The Burkburnett Bulldogs unleashed an offensive and defensive storm in the first quarter en route to a 65-42 victory over the Steers in their Class 3A bi-district playoff game at Eastland High School Tuesday night.

The first eight minutes of the game was a nightmare clad in orange — orange being the predominant color of Burkburnett's jerseys — for the Steers. Quite simply, the Bulldogs did little wrong, while Big Spring couldn't establish a rhythm on either side of the court.
