The Spartan women’s basketball team hosted the Pirates of North Central Missouri College on Monday, November 10, and could not get it going offensively to begin the game. The Spartans found themselves down 9-0 early on in the game after a poor shooting start and were never able to gain any momentum to make it a game falling to North Central 78-53. Despite the poor offensive start the Spartans were playing solid defensively holding the Pirates to only 12 points through the first eight minutes of the first-half. “I thought we were playing solid defensively, but not being able to score I think led to less effort on defense and that cannot happen,” said Head coach Addae Houston. The Spartans finished the first-half down 19 points to North Central, 36-17.

The Spartan Men’s Basketball team held on for a 91-82 victory after pushing its lead to 16 with just under five minutes to go on Monday Night versus North Central Missouri College.  A balanced offensive attack was used with five players in double figures.  “Our balance is something I really like about our team.  We have multiple players capable of scoring on any given night which makes it hard for a team to focus on just a guy or two,” said Coach Todd Lorensen.
