Adam Nibaur led the point parade with 16 points followed by Kyler Johnson with 12 (four 3s), Dylan Schueler off the bench with 11 and Austin Grove 10, plus 8 rebounds.

Joel Carter lit the flame with 9 steals and Tyler Stegeman, along with Carter, created all kinds of havoc hounding the Spartan guards.

But be clear, this not the typical run-and-gun in-your-face Rocori edition.

The Spartans have now lost 11 straight, going back to last season. This was their third straight loss by double digits.

Leaving the halftime locker room, Willmar extended an 11-point lead to 37-19 scoring the first seven points and eventually extending the bulge to 21 points to 47-26 with 9 minutes left.

Willmar improved to 2-1 in league and 4-2 overall. The Spartans sagged to 0-4 and 0-7.

The Cards next host Fergus Falls on Thursday.
