The Spartans trailed 42-31 at halftime and were only ever able to close the gap to 10 in the second half. The Saints hit 11 3-pointers in the game. Rocori was 12-23 from the free throw line and struggled without senior forward Zach Templin, missing his second straight game due to injury. Jonah Eisenschenk and Jeron Terres were the only Spartans in double figures, scoring 17 and 14 points respectively. The Saints were led by center Peter Kruize who scored 23 points and went over the 1,000 career point mark for his career in the second half.
