Big Spring boys
More than anything, the first quarter of the Big Spring-Sweetwater game Tuesday in Steer Gym was an exhibition of athleticism on the Steersâ€™ part.
There was that uptempo style they like to run and a couple of missed dunks that had fans buzzing.
But forward Mike Menefield gave the fans what they wanted on a fast break with a two-handed jam that gave the Steers a 13-7 lead.
By then the Steers were well on their way to the 75-46 drubbing of the Mustangs in District 5-3A play.
COAHOMA â€” Coahoma head coach Kim Nichols continues to stress putting four quarters together as the Bulldogs dropped a District 3-2A contest to Denver City at home.
Tanner Ruizâ€™s 16 points werenâ€™t enough to keep the Bulldogs around in this game. The Bulldogs cut a deficit to seven twice late in the game, but Denver City was just too much.
Things havenâ€™t exactly gone the Bulldogsâ€™ way so far in district play with injuries, among other things, ailing the team, but Nichols said his group is still positive about halfway through district play.
