The Spartans were led by senior guard Joshua Langford, who scored a team-high 21 points. He was aided by fellow seniors Aaron Henry and Rocket Watts, who combined for 23 points. For the Hoosiers, Trayce Jackson-Davis led the way with 23 points, but the Spartans’ defense was able to limit the Hoosiers’ other offensive threats.
The game was close throughout, with the Spartans leading by only four points at halftime. However, the Spartans pulled away in the second half, outscoring the Hoosiers by 15 points in the second half.
