On Tuesday February 24th, the Spartans played their best game of the year so far hanging on to win in dramatic fashion over league leading Milford. Turpin came out on fire and stayed hot all night shooting 59 percent from the field for the game, including 14 of 25 from beyond the arc.
Turpin struggled early, similar to the first game with Withrow, but turned up the defense and the rebounding in the third quarter to push their record to (8-4) in the ECC and (14-6) overall. A 9-0 run to start the second half allowed the Spartans to grab the lead 35-28 and Withrow was never able to get closer than 3 points the rest of the way. Final score, Turpin 69 – Withrow 57.
Turpin jumped in front early and led wire to wire in a hard fought non-conference road win over Harrison Tuesday, February 10th.
