LEE 50, MONUMENT MOUNTAIN 48
GREAT BARRINGTON >> Monument coach Mike Saporito was fairly succinct in summing up Thursday's home loss to Lee.
"If you told me at the beginning of the game [Josh] Sampson and [Matt] Reynolds would combine for 12 points, I think we'd win," said the Spartan coach. "Give Lee credit. They got a really good game off the bench by Pichardo."
That would be Randy Pichardo, who came off the bench to score 12 points, leading the Wildcats. He was joined in the scoring pad with a 12-point performance by Noah Johnson, who was 4 for 5 from outside the 3-point arc.
The Spartans (4-5) fell behind 16-5 in the first quarter and spent the rest of the game catching up.
