ROSWELL, N.M. â€” Remember that old sports clichĂ© about â€śthrowing the records out the window when these two teams meet?â€ť Apply it to just about any Howard College-New Mexico Military Institute basketball game.
The Hawks and NMMI entered Monday night's Western Junior College Athletic Conference matchup at opposite ends of the conference spectrum â€” Howard was firmly in second place, while the Broncos were ensconced in the WJCAC cellar.
So, of course, the game wasn't decided until the final moments.
