The St. Thomas Aquinas Knights would welcome the Springfield Spartans in on Saturday afternoon and after a 69-35 win, Aquinas would remain undefeated on the year at 13-0. Aquinas would jump out to an early first quarter lead and would find themselves up 22-5 after 1. A balanced scoring attack, led by Hayley Smith’s double-double (23 points and 11 rebounds) and Addison Mucci’s 20 points, would see the Knights have 8 players register points on the afternoon. Aquinas would also knock down 9 three pointers on the day, including 4 from Mucci.

The Knights will be back in action Tuesday night at home versus Mapleton.
