Spartans pull away from Hamilton

By Russ Green-Sports Editor

The Spartan offense came to life in the second half Monday night as Richmond picked up its 13th victory of the season with a 60-49 decision at Hamilton. The Spartans, now 13-5, led by only 3 at the half, but they found their long-range touch in the third period.

Reid Summers, who scored a game-high 30 points, knocked down three of his seven 3-point buckets in the third and Philip Kincaid added two more treys to help Richmond open up some breathing room.

The Spartans outscored the Hornets (3-12) 22-15 in the third period to take a 47-37 cushion into the final 8 minutes. The Richmond lead reached 16 points midway through the fourth frame.

“Reid got hot in the third quarter with 16 points, then his teammates also got going to help us pull away,” Richmond coach Duane Bastob said.
