Last-minute heroics lift Spartans over St. Thomas More

On his way to the locker room after the game, St. Joseph-Ogden's Ty Pence shakes hands with fellow student Conrad Miller after SJO's 45-43 home victory over St. Thomas More. Pence, who drained the game-winning free throw in the last 30 seconds of the game, and teammate Logan Smith finished with 14 points each in the Illini Prairie Conference win. The Spartans improve to 16-4 on the season and 3-1 in conference play. Pence & Co. play on the road Friday at Monticello, who are 4-1 in the IPC.
