Explosive start leads Spartans to win

SHEFFIELD — Monument Mountain boys’ basketball coach Randy Koldys said his team hasn’t yet progressed to where he wants it to be. But Monday’s game against Mt. Everett may have given some clues as to where the Spartans could be headed.

The Spartans walked away with a 62-43 victory over the Eagles, though the visitors led by as many as 35 points in the third quarter before the starters began to make their way to the bench.

As Monument is wont to do, the Spartans came out of the gates running and gunning, led by sophomore guard Connor Hanavan, who scored 13 of his team’s 27 points in the opening eight minutes of action, who credited his scoring output to his play on the other end of the court.

“My defense leads to my offense,” Hanavan said. “I’m starting to bring the ball to the hoop a little more and seeing the ball go through the basket. When I see it do that, I’m on.”
