Hawks get best of NMMI, 64-48

February 11, 2011

Everything about the Howard College-New Mexico Military Institute game Thursday pointed toward an emphatic win for the Hawks.

Howard was on a four-game win streak, NMMI is at the bottom of the Region-5 West standings and this was the team the Hawks beat in Roswell, N.M., with four players in the final minutes of the game, due to suspensions and foul trouble.

While the Hawks triumphed for a 64-48 win Thursday, the Broncos gave Howard some trouble early on, enough for head coach Mark Adams to take notice.

Lady Steers’ season ends at Snyder; Segundo, BSHS boys take care of Tigers

February 9, 2011

SNYDER — The Big Spring Lady Steers are entering the offseason a little earlier than they wanted.

In a win-and-in scenario, Snyder clinched third place and a playoff berth with a 44-32 win over Big Spring Tuesday night in the season finale.

The Lady Steers’ woes in the first half continued, which was a big reason for the loss. Big Spring scored seven points in the first half.
But despite that, Big Spring made Snyder sweat a little bit, getting within 10 a few times in the second half after the slow start.

Young, Adams send Steers past Lions; Lady Steers fall, but still in hunt for playoff spot

February 8, 2011

Big Spring boys
Brownwood sent the wrong player to the line with 3.2 seconds left.
The Lions were clinging to a 49-48 lead when Luke Adams was fouled and sent to the charity stripe and at that point, it was just a matter of playing defense for three more seconds.

“I knew they were going in,” Adams said of the late free throws. “Without my teammates, it wouldn’t have been possible.”

Those two free throws did go in as Big Spring edged the Lions for a thrilling 50-49 win and Adams is right. The Steers wouldn’t have been in position to win if it weren’t for Dayvion Young’s late heroics.
