The Spartans were hot all night as Andy Johnston gets the bounce pass and knocks down three of his team high 23 points to make it 46 to 43 in the fourth.
Auburn's Travis Moles, who scored 18 tonight for the Eagles, gets two here as he sticks back his own miss.

The Bobcats of Radford were hoping to get their foot in the finals as well.
Radford had problems holding on to the ball as Josh Ward gets the knock away and goes to the other end for the Layup and an early Glenvar lead.
Ward would then give the ball on the inbound to Bryan Faschnat who drives inside and knocks down the short jumper for a 10 point Highlander lead..
