Warriors hold off Rochester


WILLMAR -- Ridgewater bumped and pushed with Rochester Wednesday, leading to an 82-78 win in MCAC South Division men's basketball action.

"It was a really rough, physical game," said Warriors coach Bob Knutson. "I was really pleased with the way we played."

The Yellowjackets (8-3, 18-7) started the game with full-court pressure that took the Warriors (7-4, 15-9) a little getting used to, but Ridgewater held fast to a 47-44 halftime lead.
