“The first half (Rainy River) shot the ball really well and got a lead on us,” Ridgewater head coach Bob Knutson said. “Then we were able to get together and play a great second half. The players really played well … they did a nice job playing from behind.”

Down by as much as 15, the Warriors outscored the Voyageurs 48-30 in the second half.

Terrance Lockett led Ridgewater with 21 points.

Neil Helgeson scored 13 points, had 5 assists and 4 steals, and Jake Rambow tacked on 9 points and 6 rebounds.

The Warriors are off until Jan. 4 when they travel to Grand Rapids for the Itasca Invite.
