Spartans ousted in substate final by Assumption

IOWA CITY– “It was a game where you couldn’t have too many bad possessions in a row,” Solon Head Coach Brad Randall said. “You have to play pretty flawless to beat them.”
The Solon Spartans fell behind Davenport Assumption in the first quarter of a Class 3A substate final last Monday night, and couldn’t overcome a double-digit lead, losing 59-40.
Solon had trouble keeping up with Assumption’s transition offense, and Assumption’s defense prevented Solon’s Turner Wentzien from scoring until well into the fourth period.
