The defending national champions just needed a little bit of daylight.
In Mondayâs WJCAC opener, South Plains looked like the better team for most of the game, but once Howard College found an opportunity to steal a win, the Hawks didnât waste it.
âWe feel like we just got outplayed for three-fourths of the game,â Howard head coach Mark Adams said. âBut the last eight minutes, we showed some aggression. We were much more physical with South Plains and we hit some big shots.â
Excuse the Howard College womenâs basketball team for feeling a little thwarted in Mondayâs WJCAC opener against South Plains.
The Hawks didnât see a 2-3 zone defense at all in their first meeting with the Lady Texans in the WJCAC Pre-Conference Tournament, and they hadnât seen one in a while. So they were a little surprised to see it Monday night.
âIt kind of threw us off a little bit, but we got it under control,â said Twyla Ards, who had 10 points.
