GARDEN CITY â€” Name the time, date and place of the Garden City-Borden County football game and the urge to be there is evident.
Maybe more than most six-man football games, when these two teams hook up, fans flock to Gail, Garden City or in todayâ€™s case, Forsan at 7:30 p.m., hoping to see the epitome of six-man football.
The two teams faced each other in a 40-39 thriller during the regular season, with Garden City getting the upper hand. Now tonight, a lot more is on the line during the area round of the playoffs.
STANTON â€” Stanton was excited to be this far into the playoffs like many other teams. That ended quickly with a loss to Olton.
The Buffaloes donâ€™t talk much about last year, making it a point to concentrate on whatâ€™s in front of them.
But with a senior laden squad and a strong defense, itâ€™s safe to say the Buffs donâ€™t want to let the chance to keep playing pass them by this time.
Howard College's Tasha Tubbs will make Houston her home next basketball season. She signed her national letter of intent Thursday.
Howard College head coach Earl Diddle on Tubbs: "We really excited. I think the University of Houston is getting a real complete player. She's worked very hard from her days at Amarillo Palo Duro High School. She's done something that junior college players have to do and that's improve. She's improved her defense, her rebounding, she's improved her passing. She's a great shooter.
Things are toughening up or the Howard College menâ€™s basketball team and head coach Mark Adams wouldnâ€™t have it any other way.
The Hawks are on the road against Collin County Community College at 5:30 p.m. today and Grayson County College at 3 p.m. Saturday in Denison.
The main challenge here? Playing Collin County and not having ample time to prepare for Grayson County.
The Hawks have done this before, with Friday and Saturday games in Weatherford and Midland the last two weekends. This time itâ€™s different though, both teams are tougher.
Big Spring vs. Odessa Permian
- 7:30 p.m., today, Big Spring
First-year Big Spring boys basketball head coach Cliff Thompson got his first win at the helm in Tuesdayâ€™s 69-33 rout of Fort Stockton. Now, a second one would be even better. The Steers will depend on a good mix of athleticism in tonightâ€™s matchup. Tristain Clay and Luke Adams were the high scorers for the Steers in the season opener, with 14 and 13 points, respectively.

FORSAN â€” Gary Huckabee has been around the Forsan boys basketball team for five years, and for the last two, heâ€™s seen the Buffaloes fail to reach their potential.
As an assistant those last five years, Huckabee helped develop players, but now in his first season as head coach, he plans on doing something to turn things around.
