The Spartans hit the road to Cedar Rapids on Saturday, Jan. 27, 2018, to play Kirkwood Community College.
Southwestern started the game with a 6-0 run, but then the Eagles came to life and countered with a 17-2 run to end the first quarter. At the half, the Eagles held the lead 44-16.
Spartan Head Coach Addae Houston said at the start, his team was poised and had good execution; however, after the first five minutes of the game, the Eagles' defense stepped it up a notch and the Spartans went on a scoring drought from which they could never recover.
Keaundra Washington led the Spartans with 17 points, shooting five of 10 from the three-point line.
Up next, on Wednesday, Jan 31, the Spartans will face Southeastern Community College at home.
