Last-minute magic: Hawks down Odessa in OT thriller

January 27, 2012

Coaches and players like to talk about intensity as if it's something that can be bottled and stored away for use at appropriate times, but in truth it's an intangible thing that you either have or you don't.

Thursday night against Odessa College, the Howard College Hawks lacked intensity in the first half. The second half, however, was a far different story.

The Hawks rebounded from a double-digit deficit in the first half to earn a 91-88 overtime win over OC in a Western Junior College Athletic Conference thriller at Dorothy Garrett Coliseum Thursday night.

Howard-Odessa women's game postponed

January 27, 2012

A glitch in referee assignments resulted in the postponement of Thursday's Western Junior College Athletic Conference women's basketball game between Howard College and Odessa College.

The game is now set for a 6 p.m. tip-off tonight at Dorothy Garrett Coliseum.

HC officials said that the WJCAC administrator responsible for assigning officials to particular games failed to have referees available for Thursday's game in Big Spring. After failing to find alternate referees, officials from both schools decided upon the postponement.
