BIG SPRING â€” After a hard-fought matchup, Big Spring fell to Lubbock Monterey 65-59 Tuesday at Steer Gym.
Though it was a loss, BSHS Head Coach Ian Ritchey thought his squad turned in a strong performance.
â€śI thought we played much better against a very good team from a bigger school,â€ť he said. â€śIt was only our second game with our whole team and weâ€™re starting to gel and show many signs of good things to come.â€ť
Leading the Steers were Matt Yanez with 13 points, Tavaris Walker with 12 and Tyler Wigington with 11.
Next up for Big Spring will be a tournament in Andrews.
COAHOMA â€” Braxton Iden registered a game-high 20 points and the Bulldogs (3-2) outscored visiting Post 17-4 in the second period to earn a 54-47 victory Tuesday.
Next up for CHS will be the winner of the Colorado City-Garden City game at a tournament in Crane. Tip off is set for Friday at 5 p.m.
Individual stats: Braxton Iden, 20; Shanen Warneke, 8; Kyler Franks, 7; Namen McCullough, 7; Cam Crabtree, 3; Hayden Adamson, 3; Ben Chapa, 2; Caige Miller, 2; Devin Ruiz, 2.
FORSAN â€” The Buffaloes may have had the larger school advantage over Class A, D-II Garden City, but the No. 4 ranked Bearkats are no pushovers.
Despite Corbin Davis and Sam Millerâ€™s combined 36 points, Forsan remained undefeated, beating Garden City 63-52 Tuesday.
â€śIt was a high-speed game with several lead changes,â€ť said FHS Head Coach Gary Huckabee. â€śGarden City has an excellent team and it took real effort to hold them off.â€ť
The Buffs were led by Matthew Mims who had scored a game-high 28 points. Also adding buckets for FHS were Kade Fannin (10), Zane Sanders (9), Clayton Galloway (8), Tyler Evans (7) and Kolby Self (1).
Forsanâ€™s next opponent will be Lubbock Roosevelt on Thursday at a tournament in Abernathy.
COAHOMA â€” The Bulldogettes (4-4) overcame a 14-5 first quarter deficit to Postâ€™s lead to three at the half, but the slow start ended up hurting
Coahoma, which lost 50-43 Tuesday,
Kyla Clanton led the Bulldogettes offensively with 13 points.
A tourney in Crane will offer CHS a chance to bounce back from the loss, with its first opponent, Midland Classical, slated for 9 a.m. Thursday.
Individual stats: Kyla Clanton, 13; McClayne Holgerson, 8; Savannah Neff, 7; Julia Castilaw, 6; Alexis Jackson, 5; Lauren Simer, 2; Kaeli Yager, 2.
FORSAN â€” The Lady Buffaloes (4-2) were ranked No. 25 entering Tuesdayâ€™s meeting with 2A Lamesa, but a well-executed outing by the Lady Tornadoes stymied FHS. Lamesa seized on lackluster second period by the Lady Buffs â€” who only scored two points â€” to win 41-37.
â€śWe started off slow and got behind in the first half,â€ť said FHS Head Coach Lindsey Schmidt of the loss. â€śWe missed a lot of easy baskets. We missed a lot of outside shots and some layups.â€ť
Forsanâ€™s scoring was spread out across the court, but Brittney Hergert chipped in 12 and Mary-Ashley McDaniel added 10.
â€śBrittney had a good game,â€ť Schmidt added. â€śIâ€™m real proud of all of the girls. They battled back. They could have given up after the first half, but they were fighting in the fourth quarter.â€ť
A game with Floydada is set for Thursday at 3 p.m. in Abernathy.
