Howard men hold off Odessa, 52-48

January 28, 2011

Carlos Emory knew exactly what needed to be done in Thursday’s game against Odessa College that hadn’t been done in Howard College’s last two losses to Midland College and Western Texas College.

Attack, attack and attack some more.

“We knew the key to winning was just getting it to them right away and being more aggressive,” he said. “Get them out of their game. We have guys who know how to play the play. We have coaches who know how to coach. We have players who make big plays.”

January 26, 2011

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

It was the Mustangs, however, who delivered the final blow.
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.

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.

HC women fight back for win over WTC

January 25, 2011

SNYDER — The Howard College women’s basketball team had reason to be encouraged at the end of a sloppy first half against Western Texas College, considering the Lady Westerners weren’t doing much better.

That was because the Hawks’ defense stayed steady throughout Tuesday’s game, and once the offense woke up, Howard College had a firm grip on the game.

Lady Steers oust Snyder for first district win

January 22, 2011

Apparently, the Big Spring Lady Steers made up their minds in practice Wednesday they weren’t going to fall to 0-4 in District 5-3A play.

Whatever was said then, it definitely gave Big Spring a much-needed spark as the Lady Steers upended Snyder 59-53 Friday in Steer Gym.

“We were just determined,” BSHS center Cerbi Ritchey said. “In practice on Wednesday, we decided ‘Hey, we’re tired of this and this isn’t our team. So we’re going to practice hard and we’re going to play hard.’ So we did. We played like we practiced this week and it really paid off.”

No. 24 BSHS boys throttle Tigers by 36

January 22, 2011

One thing Big Spring boys’ basketball coach Cliff Thompson noticed in the Steers’ 85-49 win over Snyder Friday was how packed the gym was

Hawks Announce Record Adjustment

January 21, 2011

Howard College athletic director Britt Smith has announced the forfeit of two men's basketball games because the Hawks inadvertently played an ineligible player in the Mesa Shootout over the winter break.

The forfeits change the Hawks' overall record from 15-3 to 13-5. They are 3-1 in conference play in the western zone of Region 5.

"The player's eligibility has since been re-established and he has returned to the team. The eligibility issue was a communication error within the athletic department and the student athlete was not at fault," Smith said.
