November 19, 2010

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.

Howard men in Denison, women face LCU JV

November 19, 2010

Things are toughening up or the Howard College men’s basketball team and head coach Mark Adams wouldn’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 it’s different though, both teams are tougher.

Lady Steers’ perimeter shooting beats Fort Stockton

November 17, 2010

Getting off to a good start was one of the main objectives for the Big Spring Lady Steers in Tuesday’s game against Fort Stockton in Steer Gym.

How’s a 17-1 run for starters en route to a 60-18 win?

“We talked about that since the last game,“ BSHS head coach Mike Warren said. “We got good shots against their zone just passing the ball around and inside to Cerbi Ritchey, inside to Diamond Mayes. That opened up stuff on the outside.”

November 17, 2010

Cliff Thompson joked that right now would be a good time to retire. After all, he would retire undefeated as the Big Spring boys’ basketball coach at 1-0.

Then he quickly noted that winning just feels too good.
The Steers upended Fort Stockton for a season-opening 69-33 for Thompson’s first win as Big Spring’s head coach. If the Steers can continue to improve, Thompson just might have the chance to get used to winning.

Fort Stockton on tap for Lady Steers

November 16, 2010

It’s all about consistently gaining confidence as the Big Spring girls basketball team approaches tournaments in December and district play in January.

As far away as that seems, every game until then counts.

“I think the last two years we’ve been playing with younger girls,” Big Spring head coach Mike Warren said. “Last year they competed at a high level and I think it’s time for them to start enjoying some of the rewards of that hard work we’ve been doing for two years.”

Girls basketball: Lady Buffs face road test against Grady

November 16, 2010

FORSAN — The Forsan girls’ basketball team got the win in its season opener against Garden City, but head coach Robert Hillger is hoping the jitters his players had in that first game are nowhere to be found tonight.

The Lady Buffs are on the road against Grady at 4 p.m. today in Lenorah. They’re coming off a close 39-37 win against Garden City.
That game was good for the Lady Buffs, however. Hillger said a lot of lessons come from close games.
