If I had not known better, I would have sworn that I had stepped back into 1970, 1980, or maybe even 1990 last night as the town of Comanche quite literally emptied itself to travel the short 30 miles to Brownwood, Texas to watch the Comanche Indians hand a sound defeat to the boys from Jim Ned. It’s been many years since I have seen that type of a basketball turnout, and Indian fans completely rocked the house.
I don’t know what I expected…after all, I really did believe that we had a good chance against those Indians who wear the red…but I must admit that I was nervous…a little bit anyway. However, Thedford got the tip, and I could tell from that moment on that Comanche had come to play ball. Furthermore, the Indians (who wear the black and gold…with a lot of white mixed in) had come to win!
With 3:32 to go in the 3rd quarter, Comanche was on top by a score of 42-19 and although Jim Ned did have spurts when it was able to narrow the gap by quite a bit, those times were short lived, and it was the Comanche Indians all the way when the final buzzer sounded out a tremendous 60-41 win for Coach Grant Freeman and his Comanche Indians!
Comanche will meet Wall this Tuesday evening in Abilene, and Texansunited.com will be right there with them. Be sure to lock your doors since there will be no one left at home to guard the town!
