The Warriors (2-4, 7-11) held a 47-41 lead on the strength of their shooting -- 55 percent -- in the first half.

But the Marauders (5-1, 17-2) outmuscled Ridgewater on the boards and tripped up the Warriors just enough to score the last seven points of overtime.

"Minneapolis went zone in the second half and it took us a little while to figure it out, then it was even," said Ridgewater coach Shawn Kopischke.

The Warriors' Wesley Kitt scored with 4.3 seconds left in regulation to force overtime.

Kitt finished with a game-high 23 points and added eight rebounds. Tony Kley followed with 14 points and Travis Epema had 13.
