PEORIA – Less than 24 hours after a disappointing loss, the Spartans rebound and end their season on a winning note defeating Breese Central 80-70.
“I thought both teams came out and really played hard and well, and it’s a tribute to both programs,” Hales coach Gary London said. “I thought we played much better offensively. We shot the ball a lot better than we did [in the semifinals], and course that makes things a lot easier.”
The Spartan tag-team senior guards, Patrick Miller and Jamie Adams, got back to what they do best... orchestrated offense which elevates the defense. Miller knocked down 23 while Adams added 22, of which were four three-pointers.

“At first, we were kind of sluggish and still upset about [the semifinal], and then we came out and played faster,” Miller said.
From here Adams took control in the second, scoring nine as the Spartans extended their lead to 37-29 at the break.
“It was emotional playing out there,” he said. “This is probably the last time I’m going to play with Pat, and he’s taught me so much. He never panics, never gets rattled and I’ve learned a lot playing with him.”
