2010 Spartan Classic: Routt vs. Brown County

Posted: December 10, 2010 in Basketball, Broadcast Recap

Last night Routt and Brown County met up for the first time in the 2010-11 basketball season in the Semifinal round of the Spartan Classic.  This game was expected to be a very close one and it lived up to that expectation as it went right down to the final second.  In the 1st quarter, both teams came out shooting a high percentage and Routt took a 14-12 lead.  The second quarter would be a great showing from the Rocket defense as they were able to force turnovers that resulted in points to take a 30-25 lead at the half.  Then in the 3rd quarter, Brown County relied on their defense, which only gave up 5 points, to create a lot of turnovers that resulted in Brown County taking a 38-35 lead.  The fourth quarter was back and forth with neither team gaining an edge until the Rockets were able to create turnovers and convert them into points.  Routt also held off a late Brown County rally to secure the win 56-53. For Brown County they were led in scoring by Alex Sheppard and Jacob Wilson with 15 points each.  For Routt they were led in scoring by Jeffery Gross with 15 and Nick Duke with 12.  Routt advances to 3-1 on the season and to Friday’s championship game, 8 pm. vs. North Greene.  Brown County falls to 3-1 on the year and to Friday’s 3rd place game, 6:30 pm vs. Greenfield.
