February 26, 2011

BRECKENRIDGE — The Big Spring Steers were hanging on by a thread for most of Friday’s Class 3A area championship game against No. 4 Kennedale.

The Wildcats couldn’t exactly put the Steers away early and the Steers couldn’t seriously make a game out of it.

But like elite teams do, Kennedale wore down Big Spring on the way to a 74-43 win, ending the Steers’ season.

Both Howard men, women headed to postseason

February 25, 2011

Howard College women’s basketball head coach Earl Diddle clearly was in a better mood by the end of Thursday night than he was before the regular season finale against Frank Phillips College started.

At one point, all he knew was New Mexico Junior College and Odessa College needed to lose and his team had to win if the Hawks wanted to return to the Region V Tournament. They could only control the latter.

However, with all the odds in the world against them, the Hawks took care of business and so did New Mexico and Odessa’s opponents. By the end of the night, Diddle was a happy man.
