MIDLAND â€” Some things should just be assumed when Howard College and Midland College meet on the basketball court â€” defense will rule the day; the winner will be celebrating a hard-fought win; and the loser will be left regretting missed chances.
Monday night's doubleheader at Chaparral Center followed that script perfectly as Midland took a pair of defensive battles against the Hawks, prevailing 59-53 in the women's game and 66-60 in the men's contest.
