Howard hoops squads fall at South Plains

January 31, 2012

LEVELLAND — Howard College Men's Basketball Coach Mark Adams isn't much one for moral victories, but even he saw a little bit of a silver lining in the Hawks' nail-bitingly close loss to top-ranked South Plains Monday night.

The Hawks pushed South Plains down to the wire — almost to the last second, actually — before finally dropping a 65-62 decision in Western Junior College Athletic Conference action.

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.

Hawks top preseason baseball poll

January 26, 2012

Howard College baseball is no stranger to national rankings, and this year will be no different if all goes as planned. The “Perfect Game” preseason poll announced Wednesday has the Hawks perched in the No. 1 slot for the 2012 season.

“We are at a point in our program right now where we feel that we should be competing for a shot at the national title every year,” said Britt Smith, head coach and HC athletic director.

Lady Steers stage defensive clinic vs. Monahans

January 25, 2012

Quick basketball lesson: If you keep the other team from scoring, your chances for victory become ridiculously easy.

The Big Spring Lady Steers took that lesson to heart Tuesday, using ferocious defensive pressure to hound the Monahans Lady Loboes into submission en route to a 67-24 non-district basketball victory at Steer Gym Tuesday night.

Big Spring served notice from the start what kind of night it would been when the Lady Steers blanked Monahans in the first quarter — and it barely got better for the Lady Loboes from there.
