The Spartan women battled in yet another close game this season against Graceland and unfortunately came up short once again dropping the game 85-82. Several ties and lead changes was the story for both teams at the start but the Spartans were able to string together several defensive stops along with some key offensive possessions to take a nine point lead 48-39 to conclude the first half. Head coach Addae Houston commented, “It took us awhile to find some offense early on but we had a great stretch of both offensive and defensive possessions where we scored points and had stops to close the first half.”
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.
