Last-minute magic: Hawks down Odessa in OT thriller

January 27, 2012

Coaches and players like to talk about intensity as if it's something that can be bottled and stored away for use at appropriate times, but in truth it's an intangible thing that you either have or you don't.

Thursday night against Odessa College, the Howard College Hawks lacked intensity in the first half. The second half, however, was a far different story.

The Hawks rebounded from a double-digit deficit in the first half to earn a 91-88 overtime win over OC in a Western Junior College Athletic Conference thriller at Dorothy Garrett Coliseum Thursday night.
