Sparta bested Grant 50-45 Tuesday night at Tiger Gymnasium. After trailing virtually the entire game, Sparta regained control in the fourth quarter, turning a 3-point deficit into a 7-point lead late. Logan Armock's technical foul and a subsequent basket by the Tigers closed the gap to only 2 points, but some deft ball handling by Conrad Savage and Conner West allowed Sparta to convert offensively from that point on, as Randy Tramper scored in bunches inside, and from the free throw line late, sealing the win. Tramper led Sparta with 17 points and 10 boards. Garret Cheslek notched 11 points and 11 rebounds. Grant Kelley and Conrad Savage added 5 apiece. Defensively, Sparta limited Grant's most dangerous offensive threat, Carter Chase, to 4 points in the last frame. Sparta is off until after the holiday break.
