Lady Steers cruise past Pecos, 69-22

December 8, 2010

The Big Spring Lady Steers experimented a little bit in their 69-22 thrashing of Pecos Tuesday in Steer Gym.

In 10 games, head coach Mark Warren has already found out a lot about this year's squad. But he wants to know how versatile his offense can be no matter if defenses run man-to-man or the zone.

“I thought it would be a good night just to work on things just to see what's our best zone offense, what's our best press — we changed our presses up a little bit,” he said. “Just a lot of fun. It was a good game with everyone getting to play a lot.”

Back to state: Garden City thumps Follett for berth in state title game

December 5, 2010

SEYMOUR — It’s hard to catch Garden City head coach Vance Jones without a smile on his face after the Bearkats’ games.

It was no different after his team thwarted Follett 59-14 by halftime in the UIL Six-Man Division I semifinal in Seymour Saturday night.
Then again, it hasn’t been different for the last 28 games.

“I’m still soaking it in,” Jones said, clinching his sixth trip to a state title game and ensuring the Bearkats a chance to win a second consecutive title next week. “This is outstanding. I’m still on Cloud 9.”

Hawk men get break, women in WJCAC Pre-Conference tourney

December 3, 2010

LUBBOCK — At 10-1, not much should be bothering the Howard College men’s basketball team.

But there is one underlying problem bothering the Hawks: depth.

The Hawks have a break after their 107-46 win over Lubbock Christian Junior Varsity Thursday in Lubbock. They do not play until Dec. 31 in the Mesa Community College shootout.

Right now, however, they are down to eight players after Will Bunton was suspended this week for breaking team rules.

Lady Steers win in OT, boys stumble in San Angelo

December 1, 2010

GREENWOOD — Cerbi Ritchey was the go-to player when it mattered most and Greenwood probably knew that.

The Rangerettes just couldn’t do much about it.

The Lady Steers edged Greenwood in a 45-41 victory on the road thanks to nine points in overtime , six of which were from Ritchey.

In total, Ritchey had 21 points and Mackenzie Stone had 11 to lead the way. Stone had a team-high seven rebounds and Diamond Mayes had six boards.

Mayes and Ritchey in the post is becoming a lethal combination for head coach Mike Warren.
