BRAINERD -- The Ridgewater men's basketball team played well against Central Lakes on Saturday but that wasn't nearly enough against the top-ranked team in NJCAA Division III.

Kwamaine Johnson scored 24 points and Maurice Hernandez scored 21 to lead the Raiders to a 97-73 win over the Warriors.

"We played pretty well," said Ridgewater head coach Bob Knutson. "We shot the ball really well but so did they. It was a good game and we played hard, but with them being one of the top teams in the nation, we just athletically couldn't keep up with them."

The Warriors fell to 0-6 in the MCAC Southern Division and 6-14 overall. Central Lakes is 6-1 in the division and 21-1 overall. Ridgewater plays Rochester at home on Wednesday.

Zak Pendleton led the Warriors with 18 points, Tyler Pendleton finished with 17 and Neil Helgeson had 16. Ridgewater hit 49 percent from the field but Central Lakes topped that, hitting 55 percent, and outrebounding the Warriors 36-22.
