HOUSTON — Working with a young team can be like clinging to a giant pendulum. With a roster that sports primarily freshmen and sophomores, Houston head coach Steve Henderson has been along for that ride this season, swinging back forth from the good to not as good.
Friday, there was the good. Sophomore Ben Bitler scored 13 points to help the Hawks battle back. And there were the struggles that can come with young squads.
A veteran Nikiski Bulldogs squad used big first and fourth quarters to score a 57-38 win over the Hawks at Houston High School.
