The Spartans, from the Mid-Eastern Athletic conference MEAC) were able to fight back and close it to 51-41 with 4:54 left but the Gee-Gees closed out a comfortable victory. NSU coach Robert Jones comments: “Ottawa would be equivalent to a mid-major plus/high-major minus team in NCAA Division I and has lost only one game on their Costa Rican tour so far.” We hope to have more once our technical issues are solved.
