HOBBS, N.M. â€” The Howard College womenâ€™s basketball team scratched and clawed its way back into a tough game against New Mexico Junior College Thursday night, but ultimately, a few key turnovers doomed the Hawks in a 76-70 loss in overtime.
The Hawks (15-4, 1-1 in WJCAC play) were down by 10 deep into the second half, but made a push to tie the game at the end of regulation. The Lady T-Birds (15-3, 1-0) had a chance to steal the win with the last shot of the second half, but as soon as that was off the mark, Howard had a chance.
While the Coahoma boys are coming off their first win in District 3-2A play, the girls are hoping to get the bad taste out of their mouths from Tuesdayâ€™s loss to Lubbock Roosevelt. Both teams are on the road against Colorado City today. The girls play at 6 p.m. And the boys at 7:30 p.m.
Both Forsan teams couldnâ€™t get wins over Stanton at home, but theyâ€™ll have a chance for redemption at Slaton today. The girls play at 6 p.m. and the boys at 7:30 p.m.

Actually, itâ€™s been a recurring topic among the Steers this week.
