Big Spring girlsâ€™ basketball coach Mike Warren knows not many are picking the Lady Steers to win District 5-3A. The â€śfavoritesâ€ť title belongs to their opponents at 6 p.m. today at Abilene Wylie.
Warren is more comfortable in the role of spoiler and believes his team has a chance to turn some heads,too.
â€śI think itâ€™s up for grabs and I think Wylieâ€™s going to get beat,â€ť he said of how District 5-3A might play out. â€śI think anything can happen. I think Brownwood can knock off Wylie and we can, too. I think itâ€™s important to win your home games and defend your home court.
Itâ€™s not uncommon to see college football apparel throughout West Texas, or anywhere in Texas for that matter. Stickers, jerseys and shirts are just a few things fans use to display their pride.
But in Big Spring, the No.17 in maroon is just a little more popular these days. Texas A&M quarterback and Big Spring native Ryan Tannehill is just a little more popular these days.
While Big Spring boysâ€™ basketball head coach Cliff Thompson is counting down the days until District 5-3A play begins, heâ€™s also making sure the Steers are fully equipped for the ride.
That includes making sure every aspect of his team is at its highest level before that Jan. 14 matchup at Brownwood and adding a few new wrinkles to the offense.
The Steers have been adding new plays and hope to test them in tonightâ€™s game against Lubbock Cooper at 7:30 p.m. in Steer Gym.
