Howard shocks No. 7 McLennan in Region V tournament

LUBBOCK - Howard College men’s basketball coach Scott Raines offered his team an easy way out prior to the start of the Region V Basketball Tournament on Wednesday afternoon at the Rip Griffin Center in Lubbock. He told them they could get on the bus and return to Big Spring and not worry about a possible rematch with New Mexico Junior College.Fortunately for Raines, the Hawks wanted no part of the “easy” road.
