Beau Herrig led the Warriors (6-7) with 15 points and 11 rebounds, and Neil Helgeson scored 16 points.

The game was a back-and-forth affair, with the largest lead being Itasca’s eight-point advantage at 46-38 early in the second half. The teams traded the lead 12 times and were tied seven times.

But Itasca was able to take advantage of Ridgewater turnovers while the Warriors were not able to do the same. Ridgewater committed 20 turnovers compared to the Vikings’ 23, but Itasca scored 25 points off those Ridgewater miscues and the Warriors managed just 14 points off turnovers.

Ridgewater’s Terrance Lockett had 12 points and 3 steals, and Zak Pendleton hit two of the Warriors’ five 3-pointers and finished with 10 points.

The Warriors host St. Cloud Technical on Wednesday.
