Conner West (23 points), The Sparta Blue Crew, and Chase Wilson (15 points) led Sparta to a dramatic 68-67 victory at Little Caesars Arena Thursday afternoon. Sparta was down 15 points early, but rallied in the second half. The Marauders struggles from the free throw line (4-19) opened the door for the Spartans, who finally clawed back to take the lead in the fourth quarter for good. Jax Wilson and Sam Kerska scored 7 apiece. "Big" John Rozema added 6. Sam Whitmore scored 5, and led in rebounding. Alex Vanderwilp chipped in 4. T.J. Devary and Hayden Degraff did the "dirty work" that spearheaded the comeback. Sparta, who shot 17-26 from the free throw line, is off until January 10th.
