The first semifinal matchup of the Spartan Classic featured Brown County and Routt.  Both teams would play neck and neck the entire first half with neither team going on a big run.  Then right out of the gate in the 3rd quarter, Routt would take advantage of Brown County’s miscues and capitalized to jump out to a 37-25 lead heading into the 4th quarter.  Brown County would make a hard charge at the begining of the 4th quarter but they ended up digging themselves in a bigger hole.  Routt would hold on and pick up the quality victory 54-43 to move on to the Championship game.  Brant Young led the Rockets in scoring with 17 while Justin Volk had 16 for the Hornets.  Brown County shot 36% from the field and 59% from the free throw line while Routt went 40% from the field and 78% from the free throw line.  Routt will take on the winner of North Mac & Greenfield while Brown County will get the looser of that contest on Friday night.
