After a two week hiatus from the schedule, the Spartans took to the home court for last time this season with the intent of finishing several story lines. First, Turpin looked to earn their 10th win of the season while ending a three game skid. In addition, the team was back to full strength for the first time since before Christmas. Most notably was the return of Tess Herzog to the line-up. Less than two months removed from brain surgery, Herzog wasted little time in making an impact as she scored the first two baskets of the game. Also returning from injury was Chloe Smith and she got in on the act with a steal and layup as the Spartans started strong.
