BIG SPRING â After a hard-fought matchup, Big Spring fell to Lubbock Monterey 65-59 Tuesday at Steer Gym.
Though it was a loss, BSHS Head Coach Ian Ritchey thought his squad turned in a strong performance.
âI thought we played much better against a very good team from a bigger school,â he said. âIt was only our second game with our whole team and weâre starting to gel and show many signs of good things to come.â
Leading the Steers were Matt Yanez with 13 points, Tavaris Walker with 12 and Tyler Wigington with 11.
Next up for Big Spring will be a tournament in Andrews.
