Excuse the Big Spring volleyball team for feeling like its in uncharted territory â€” or at least territory the Lady Steers haven't been in for a while.
No play-in game to get into the playoffs. Check. Some much-needed rest before the playoffs. Check. No defending state champion waiting to pounce the Lady Steers in the bi-district round. Check.
All that has Big Spring feeling like it has a chance to go deep in the playoffs this season, as opposed to last year. It starts with Vernon at 6:30 p.m. today at Albany High School in Albany.
Porsche Young felt like all freshmen women's basketball players should during their first collegiate game.
â€śI was excited and nervous,â€ť the guard from Oklahoma City said. â€śI came out and my hands were sweating. But it was fun, it was a good experience.â€ť
Young might have said she was nervous, but she didn't play like it.
The freshman shined in the Howard College Hawks' season-opening win over Lubbock Christian Junior Varsity 114-44 with 25 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.
