Additionally, Freshman Peyton Russell and Jill Vanderhoof each scored 10 points in the 59-52 win over Simpson.
Head Coach Addae Houston said, "It was good to see the team move the ball as well as we did. We talk a lot about having confidence to hit open shots when they are there and the entire team was able to do that tonight."
The Spartans hosted the Division I Marshalltown Tigers on Saturday, January 25 struggled to a 84-54 loss. Head Coach Addae Houston said,"Marshalltown got off to a quick start shooting the ball extremely well from the three-point line and took a commanding lead early on. We did not shoot the ball well even though we were getting decent looks. The thing that hurt us the most in this game was not taking care of the basketball. The team had 21 turnovers for the game."
The Spartans played the fourth-ranked Kirkwood eagles on the road on Wednesday, January 22. They lost to the Eagles 66-44.
Head Coach Addae Houston said,"The challenge was everything we expected. It was closely contested game for most of the first half but a run near the end of the first half put Kirkwood up 32–21. Kirkwood was able to pull away with strong outside shooting from the three-point line in the second half."
The Spartans had their hand full hosting top-ranked NIACC on Saturday, January 18. Struggling with abundance of turnovers early and throughout the game, the Spartan struggled to keep pace with the Trojans offense that had 14 three-pointers on the evening. The final score was NIACC 104, Southwestern 49. Morgan Knorr led Spartan scoring with 12.
The Spartans will play next on Wednesday, January 22, when they travel to Cedar Rapids to play the fourth ranked Kirkwood Eagles.
