BSHS boys, girls hope to turn heads with win over Wylie

January 28, 2011

Big Spring girls’ basketball coach Mike Warren believes No.18 Abilene Wylie is due for an upset.

Of course, he was hoping his team would be the one to dish it out when Big Spring faced the Lady Bulldogs on the road to open District 5-3A.

Things didn’t work out so well for them thanks to Peyton Little and company, but the second meeting between the two teams at 6 p.m. today in Steer Gym may be the best chance to score that upset.

Lady Wranglers cruise past Hawks for 60-45 win

January 28, 2011

A bad shooting night didn’t stop Howard College from stealing a win on the road at Western Texas College Monday. But nights like those can’t happen against teams like Odessa.

The Lady Wranglers got easy buckets and Howard couldn’t answer back on a consistent basis in Thursday’s 60-45 loss.

Odessa had three players in double figures. Kiaherra Powell was hard to stop in the paint with 15 and Takoia Larry and Clarissa Davis had 14 apiece.

Howard men hold off Odessa, 52-48

January 28, 2011

Carlos Emory knew exactly what needed to be done in Thursday’s game against Odessa College that hadn’t been done in Howard College’s last two losses to Midland College and Western Texas College.

Attack, attack and attack some more.

“We knew the key to winning was just getting it to them right away and being more aggressive,” he said. “Get them out of their game. We have guys who know how to play the play. We have coaches who know how to coach. We have players who make big plays.”

No. 9 Sands boys stun No. 10 Grady

January 26, 2011

LENORAH — Grady did its best to deliver the knockout punch to Sands in a matchup of two top 10 teams.

It was the Mustangs, however, who delivered the final blow.
In a wild back and forth contest, No. 9 Sands upended No. 10 Grady 48-47 Tuesday at Wildcat Gym in Lenorah in District 8A, Division II action.

Both teams are playoff bound, but the win gives Sands the easier path to the district championship, especially since the Mustangs beat Grady at home earlier this season.

Biggs leads WTC past Hawks for 88-77 win

January 25, 2011

SNYDER — No one was bigger than Deverell Biggs in Western Texas College’s 88-77 win over Howard College Monday.

The guard’s 31 points powered the Westerners past the Hawks, but Howard College head coach Mark Adams isn’t quick to forget the other four players who scored in double figures against his team.

“It was a great team effort so you’d hate to give too much credit to one player when the team played so well,” he said.
Biggs was 10 of 14 from the field, 5 of 8 from the 3-point line and a thorn in the Hawks’ side all night.

HC women fight back for win over WTC

January 25, 2011

SNYDER — The Howard College women’s basketball team had reason to be encouraged at the end of a sloppy first half against Western Texas College, considering the Lady Westerners weren’t doing much better.

That was because the Hawks’ defense stayed steady throughout Tuesday’s game, and once the offense woke up, Howard College had a firm grip on the game.
