The Spartans played against a tough Phoenix Christian team on Monday afternoon. The Spartans got off to a quick start against a slow-paced Cougar team taking the lead 16 – 4 after the first quarter. SPA let off a little and Phoenix Christian took advantage of fast break opportunities to cut into the lead going into half. The Spartans were challenged by the slow-paced motion offense of Phoenix Christian that led to long possessions. SPA was down by 1 going into the 4th quarter. As coaches emphasized defense intensity in the final 8 minutes, the Spartans came out and held Phoenix Christian to 3 points while scoring 16 to truly finish strong. Balanced scoring from SPA led to a great game for the team and a good test on the road. The Spartans will be back in action again on Friday afternoon at home; 4pm against Camp Verde.
