Spencer had three early assists as Augustana led by as many as nine points in the first with the former GB U20 then recording his 241st assist of the season to set a new single-season record for the school.
The Vikings were up five at 43-38 going into half-time, and maintained their advantage in the second half with Spencer doubling the lead with a big 3-pointer to make it 74-64 with eight minutes remaining.
Augustana finish the season with an impressive 34-2 record as they inflicted just the third loss of the season on No.1 seeds Lincoln Memorial.
Spencer averaged 9.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and 6.8 assists in 36 games in the 2015-16 campaign prior to Saturday’s Final.
