Weather putting dent in BSHS basketball season

February 4, 2011

Both the Big Spring boys and girls’ basketball teams have spent a lot of time battling the same opponent this week: the weather.

The snow and frigid temperatures already postponed Tuesday’s game at Sweetwater for both teams, leaving a whole week to prepare for Brownwood at home Friday.

But that was changed late Thursday after Brownwood coaches let Big Spring know they were not permitted to make the trip because of the harsh weather.

Hawk men's basketball gets win at South Plains, women fall

February 4, 2011

Howard College split games Thursday night in Levelland against South Plains.

The women weren’t able to build off a 65-49 win at Frank Phillips Tuesday, falling to the Lady Texans 58-54. The Howard men, however, beat the Texans 58-50.

The women fall to 18-6, 4-3 in conference play and the men sit second with a 16-6 mark, 6-2 in conference play.

The season is dwindling down for both teams as the fight for postseason spots continues. There are just six games left before the Region V Tournament.

Slaton throttles Coahoma boys, girls

February 3, 2011

COAHOMA — The third quarter was like hemlock to the Coahoma Bulldogs and Bulldogettes Wednesday.

Both squads had encouraging efforts in the first halves of their respective games against Slaton Wednesday, but once the second half started, all the good vibes vanished as if through a hole in the roof of the Coahoma Elementary Gym.

The end result was a 68-51 win for Slaton in the boys’ game and a 63-33 decision in the girls’ game.

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.”
