2:40 pm Goodfellas 44 vs. Spartans 68

In the 1st, the Spartans and Goodfellas started with poor quarters and neither side was able to get their offense flowing. In the 2nd, the Spartans got into the bonus and used that to push their lead up, but they let the Goodfellas hang around by putting them on the line.
