CLARENDON â The Lady Hawks came away with a 66-50 road win against Clarendon College in what Head Coach Earl referred to as âa pivotal gameâ.
âI was really impressed with the way we came out and played,â Diddle said of his squad's performance. âThey played well defensively and really had no mental lapses even though Clarendon is a tough team to play against. They are very unorthodox.â
HC led the Lady Bulldogs by 12 at the halfway mark, who pulled within eight in the second half of play, but couldn't complete the rally and fell short in the final minutes of play.
Before Big Spring senior Chris Nunez signed his letter of intent to play football at West Texas A&M University in front of a foyer packed with family, friends and classmates, Head Football Coach and Athletic Director Phillip Ritchey had a few remarks about his success.
MIDLAND â The Howard College women had a chance to avenge their Jan. 7 home loss to Midland College on Monday, but the Lady Chaparrals hung on to edge the Hawks 63-61 despite a strong effort on the road.
âI thought we played really well defensively,â HC Head Women's Coach Earl Diddle said. âWe did a good job on their All-American, Achiri Ade, and we were in a good position to win the game, but you've got missed free throws, missed blockouts â that's how you get beat.â
BORGER â Continuing their four-game road trip, the Hawks visited Frank Phillips College on Thursday where they picked up another conference win, downing the Plainsmen 94-69.
That puts the Hawks in the top of the pack, where they are battling New Mexico Junior College, Odessa College, South Plains College and Midland College for conference supremacy.
âWe're all kind of bunched up,â Howard College Head Coach Mark Adams said.
The Plainsmen were overwhelmed from the start.
Cameron Forte scored a game-high 29 points for the Hawks, who led FPC by 18 at the half.
