Fort Stockton on tap for Lady Steers
It’s all about consistently gaining confidence as the Big Spring girls basketball team approaches tournaments in December and district play in January.As far away as that seems, every game until then counts.“I think the last two years we’ve been playing with younger girls,” Big Spring head coach Mike Warren said. “Last year they competed at a high level and I think it’s time for them to start enjoying some of the rewards of that hard work we’ve been doing for two years.”The Lady Steers took out Abilene Cooper 45-35 at home Saturday. They face Fort Stockton at 6 p.m. today in Steer Gym. What could work in the Lady Steers’ advantage tonight is the fact they’ve already seen Fort Stockton in a scrimmage this year. Warren said his team played well against the Lady Panthers and that was without Diamond Mayes in the post.The Lady Steers are going to stick with what they plan on doing best this season — applying the pressure. Big Spring hopes the full-court press will force turnovers so the Lady Steers can turn those into points.Cutting down the turnovers on their end, however, is key.
