Basketball done, baseball cooking

Posted: Thursday, February 28, 2019 12:01 pm

The wind howled across West Texas last Friday night as the Fightin’ Bucks basketball season ended in Stanton with a 76-35 playoff loss to Shallowater. A team that includes nine seniors who restored glory not seen in decades to the basketball program wept and consoled one another.

Alpine battled the District 2 champions into the third quarter, only trailing by a few possessions. That’s when the Mustangs began to run away, and a buzzer beating three-pointer gave them a 22-point lead entering the final frame. The KVLF broadcast went to a commercial break, and an ad for the local funeral home began to play.
