No. 9 Sands boys stun No. 10 Grady

January 26, 2011

LENORAH — Grady did its best to deliver the knockout punch to Sands in a matchup of two top 10 teams.

In a wild back and forth contest, No. 9 Sands upended No. 10 Grady 48-47 Tuesday at Wildcat Gym in Lenorah in District 8A, Division II action.

Both teams are playoff bound, but the win gives Sands the easier path to the district championship, especially since the Mustangs beat Grady at home earlier this season.

Colleges get new life under state Senate budget bill

Biggs leads WTC past Hawks for 88-77 win

January 25, 2011

SNYDER — No one was bigger than Deverell Biggs in Western Texas College’s 88-77 win over Howard College Monday.

The guard’s 31 points powered the Westerners past the Hawks, but Howard College head coach Mark Adams isn’t quick to forget the other four players who scored in double figures against his team.

“It was a great team effort so you’d hate to give too much credit to one player when the team played so well,” he said.
Biggs was 10 of 14 from the field, 5 of 8 from the 3-point line and a thorn in the Hawks’ side all night.
