On Saturday, Feb. 4, the Spartans went head-to-head with the Trojans of North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) in a matchup that would move one team into fourth place in the ICCAC standings, as both teams came in with a 3-3 record.

At the start, neither team gained any significant ground over the other.  Both teams shot the ball well and created some turnovers with their defense that led to a few easy baskets. As the first quarter came to a close, the Trojans held just a five-point advantage over Southwestern.
