The Spartans’ defense swiped 19 steals while holding the vistors to five, six, five and six points in the four quarters.
Ashley Beals added eight points.
Landis then scored 15 points and Bailey Trimble recorded a team-high 16 points to power SJ-O (14-3) to a 52-41 win at Tuscola. Trimble knocked down two 3-pointers and Landis hit one from behind the arc.
The Spartans pulled away in the fourth quarter, turning a 32-29 lead into a 11-point victory by outscoring the Warriors 20-12 in the final frame.
