The Connersville Spartan varsity men’s basketball team improved to 11-3 overall, 4-0 in Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference play, and extended their win streak to five games with a 51-41 win over the Bulldogs of Batesville at the Spartan Bowl on Saturday night.

“It was a physical game,” Connersville Head Coach Kerry Brown said. “[Batesville] has size, athleticism, and strength for sure. We got behind to start the game, and from there we played well enough to win. This was a good win against a good team in front of a great crowd here tonight. Thank you to the fans that came out to support the boys and the team.”
