No last-second bummer this time
By Robert Przybylo
Man, I hate to take away anything from the Howe girls, but the thing that stood out to me was how impressive Autumn Klugh was for Fort Cobb-Broxton.
I gave them a slim to none shot of knocking off Preston. And trailing 30-16 in the third quarter against Howe, it was all but over. An 11-0 run got ‘em back in it. But it also spent their energy.
The scariest thing about the Howe girls?? All of them are juniors. So get ready to see Chris Brown’s girls back at The Big House next year.
A Girls Notebook
Prayer answered: The Howe girls knew they had it good when junior Lindsay McCown drained a 3-pointer from half court as time expired in the first quarter.
McCown picked up the loose ball with 3 seconds left and calmly got herself in position. She had learned from her previous mistake.
Howe coach Chris Brown gave the girls a day off right before playoffs. The girls spent it playing Gotcha (or is Knockout a more common term?) from half court.
“I didn’t do too well during that,” McCown said. “I think I was eliminated in only the third round. I was composed today. I knew how much time was left. That’s something you don’t do every day.”
