Odessa Permian 71
Big Spring 65
Big Spring guard Luke Adams scored 42 points as the Steers dropped a close game to Odessa Permian at home.
A lot of Adams’ points came from solid free-throw shooting. The senior hit 18-of-19 shots from the free-throw line. Regardless, Adams performance impressed first-year head coach Cliff Thompson. Right behind Adams was Tristain Clay with 13 points.
Adams and Clay were also the top two scorers in the Steers’ season-opening win over Fort Stockton. Thompson said those two are turning out to be the go-to players as others continue to develop.
Thompson also noted Dayvion Young’s five points off the bench. The first-year coach said he was proud of his team’s performance against an opponent like Odessa Permian. The Steers were down 11 at halftime and down 10 heading into the fourth, but it still ended up being a close game.
The Steers face Greenwood at 8 p.m. Tuesday in Greenwood.

LAMESA — The Big Spring Lady Steers cruised to another victory thanks to Mackenzie Stone’s 17 points.
The transfer from Coahoma has scored in double-digits in all four of the Lady Steers’ games. She hit five 3-pointers in Friday’s win.
Cerbi Ritchey and Bridgette Tuitt didn’t disappoint with 14 and 13 points, respectively.
Head coach Mike Warren said the key in this game was getting off to a good start, similar to what happened in the win against Fort Stockton. The Lady Steers outscored Lamesa 22-8 in the first quarter. Warren said the more that happens, the better chance his team has to win.
Tuitt’s 13 points was a nice sight to see for Warren. Taryn Kennedy’s six points impressed Warren, too, citing she was active throughout the whole game.
The Lady Steers face Merkel at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in Steer Gym.
