Girls JV Basketball
The JV Spartans embarked on a four game in eight day campaign with a rematch against Kings. Unlike their first meeting, Turpin needed some sound 2nd half play to earn a 39-34 victory.
The host Tigers were hoping their customary zone defense would make it difficult for Turpin, but from onset, the Spartan guard play was excellent as they ran a patient offense and shot well from the outside.
The Eagles came out full of energy and quickly jumped out to a 7-0 lead as the visitor’s aggressive zone defense made it difficult for Turpin early on. Yet, the Spartans got back into the game thanks to a pair of 3 pointers from Savanah Hazenfield sandwiched around a Chloe Smith lay-up. Hazenfield assisted on an acrobatic lay-up by Audrey Robinson to tighten the score. Turpin trailed 13-10 after the 1st.
