Head Men's Basketball Coach Mark Adams said a wide margin of victory over Division III Brookhaven College on Friday was likely, but the final score of 110-53 exceeded even his expectations.
â€śWe have a team â€” as far as scoring goes â€” we score easily,â€ť Adams, who has a NJCAA national championship title on his resume, said. â€śWe can make plays and score points. It was a good win for us.â€ť
The Bears never had a chance, as the Hawks quickly went up 9-0 before Brookhaven managed to put two points on the board.
MONAHANS â€” Yaneira Tuitt banked 15 points as well as 10 rebounds and five blocks and Chellsie Clay added 11 points, four rebounds and three assists to guide the Lady Steers to a 39-24 tournament-opening win over Kermit.

RANGER â€” The Hawks remained perfect on the season as Howard College defeated Ranger College 84-70 Wednesday.
The 10-0 Hawks started slow, according to Head Coach Mark Adams, but picked up the pace when it was needed.
â€śIt was an important game for us against a very good Ranger team,â€ť Adams said. â€śIt was a hostile environment and we were down at halftime. They played really hard the second half and found a way to win.â€ť
Adams appreciated the test as the Hawks prepare for a tough conference schedule.
For the second time in four days, the Steers found themselves mired in an overtime battle with San Angelo Lake View on Tuesday, and for the second time, Big Spring came away the victors after nipping the Chiefs 65-63.
The first meeting between the Chiefs and the Steers was Saturday at the Doug McCutchen Memorial Basketball Tournament in San Angelo. BSHS ended the weekend with bang when Tyler Graves sunk a three-point shot as time expired to put the Steers up 57-56.
Last night's affair at Steer Gym was just as dramatic.

â€śWe have quite a few juniors recognized by the district coaches,â€ť Ritchey said. â€śMore so than any other class. That's certainly a good thing for next year.â€ť
SAN ANGELO â€” The Lady Steers (5-4) have been victorious in two-out-of-three games at the Doug McCutchen Basketball Tournament in San Angelo as of press time. Big Spring opened the tourney Thursday with a 48-44 loss to Midland Classical Academy, but had a chance to win in the fourth period as they outscored the Lady Knights 16-11 and trailed by a single point before MCA sealed the game.
Leading the Lady Steers in scoring was Dyrshae Vanderbilt with 14 points. Logan Yarbar added eight points and Yaneira Tuitt chipped in seven.
SEMINOLE â€” The Lady Steers (3-3) fell short on the road Tuesday against the Seminole Lady Indians, losing 30-24 despite a strong defensive showing.
BSHS Head Coach Mike Warren is focused on executing offensively before district play begins.
â€śWe played really well on defense,â€ť Warren said. â€śWe could not get going offensively. (Seinole) ran zone on us and we couldn't hit our outside shots.â€ť
Much of the reason for the Lady Steers' opponents using a zone defense attack is due to the scoring threat of Yaneira Tuitt.

â€śIt was a good non-district game,â€ť Head Coach Mike Warren said. â€śIt was good to get a win after losing the last two games.â€ť
Containing Tuitt has been a priority for opposing teams.
