The defending national champions just needed a little bit of daylight.
In Mondayâ€™s 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 didnâ€™t waste it.
â€śWe feel like we just got outplayed for three-fourths of the game,â€ť Howard head coach Mark Adams said. â€śBut the last eight minutes, we showed some aggression. We were much more physical with South Plains and we hit some big shots.â€ť
Excuse the Howard College womenâ€™s basketball team for feeling a little thwarted in Mondayâ€™s WJCAC opener against South Plains.
The Hawks didnâ€™t see a 2-3 zone defense at all in their first meeting with the Lady Texans in the WJCAC Pre-Conference Tournament, and they hadnâ€™t seen one in a while. So they were a little surprised to see it Monday night.
â€śIt kind of threw us off a little bit, but we got it under control,â€ť said Twyla Ards, who had 10 points.
