South Tama jumped out to an early lead which they held through the first half. In the first eight minutes STC's Keith Keahna attacked at the post which helped the Trojans to a 14-6 first quarter lead over the Spartans.

An adjustment on defense by the Spartans threw the Trojans for a loop. Solon switched to a zone which caused the Trojans to struggle offensively. The strategy worked for the Spartans as they held the Trojans to seven points. The Spartans had also managed to up their offense and narrowed the gap 21-18 going into halftime.

Following halftime Solon returned to the court with a renewed energy, outscoring the Trojans 24-10.

Keith Keahna had another double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds, but it was sophomore Matt Wiese who led the Trojans in scoring. Wiese totaled 14 points for a career high. The Trojans fell 51-40 moving their record to 0-19.
