The Howard College menâ€™s basketball team struggled in its final two outings of the regular season. They backed its way into the Region V Basketball Tournament as the No. 4 seed from the Western Junior College Athletic Conference.
Those are facts Hawks head coach Scott Raines isnâ€™t real thrilled about. He believes his team is much better than what the last 80 minutes of the regular season showed.
The Howard College menâ€™s and womenâ€™s basketball teams each placed two players on the 2014 All-Western Junior College Athletic Conference basketball teams. The conference honors were released earlier this week.
Charlie Boling, Ryan Lopez and Charles Green all collected gold medals on Friday and helped power the Big Spring High School Steers track and field team to an impressive outing at the Sandhills Relays in Monahans.
