twice this season and were able to overcome it to move on to claim the
district championship.
However, the Greens playoff run was cut short by the Sonora Broncos
65-75 last Friday night in Big Spring.
"We didn't come out and give 100%. It wasn't meant to be," said senior
Jason Pittman.
"We got ourselves pumped up at half-time but it wasn't enough to push us
all the way."
The Loboes were in the game all the way up to the fourth quarter, when
the Broncos went on a run to pull away.
The first half was very balanced. When Sonora would began to put
together a lead the Loboes would rally back. The quarter ended with the
Broncos on top by one 19-20.
The Green was playing punishing defense, causing several turnovers.
In the second Monahans continued their solid defensive play. Mid-way
through the quarter the Green began to pull away.
Sonora answered the Loboes run with one of their own to tie the game
late in the period.
Sonora hit an and-one with two ticks left on the clock to grab a slim
three point half time lead 31-34.
At half-time Sonora's J.B. Hubman was honored for scoring his 1000
career point.
Early in the third quarter Tye Harrelson was honored for scoring his
1000 career point.
Late in the third quarter the Loboes overcame a 10 point deficit and on
a Joey Woods three pointer tied the game at 45-45.
The Broncos went on a run late in the fourth quarter putting them up by
ten-points and began to run out the clock with 2:00 left to play.
As the game wound down the two teams went basket for basket until time
ran out leaving the score at 65-75.
The Loboes end their season 19-9 with only two losses come in district
