The Spartans got off to a good start with 19 first quarter points led by great shooting from Ellis Koagedal. The Spartans slowed down in the second quarter when their shots were not falling and went into the half up only 3 points. Once the boys were able to get some second chance points and defensive stops, the momentum shifted back in their direction. Tyler Johnson’s intensity on both sides of the ball sparked a strong finish to the 3rd quarter, which was continued by good ball movement and smart plays around the basket by Connor Swenson in the 4th. The Spartans outscored Veritas 27 – 12 in the second half. The Spartans will be back in action after the Thanksgiving holiday where they will need to improve their defensive rotations and effective ball movement as they continue into the early parts of the season.
