Steers, Lady Steers stop Snyder

February 8, 2012

The Big Spring Steers had a drama-free solution to a suspenseful situation.

The Steers left little doubt as to their qualifications for the state basketball playoffs Tuesday by taking a 61-44 win over Snyder that clinched a postseason berth for Big Spring.

Also Tuesday, the Big Spring Lady Steers closed out the regular season with 55-42 win over Snyder.

Boy's game

Heading into Tuesday's game, the Steers knew that if they won, they would clinch the last playoff spot from District 5-3A. Lose, however, and they could have missed the postseason altogether.

In the nightcap, Shavon Coleman scored 26 points to lead the Howard men to a 68-55 victory over Frank Phillips.
