The Anoka-Ramsey Men’s Basketball team built a big lead, then held on to defeat Minnesota West 93-84 on Sunday afternoon in Coon Rapids.
The Golden Rams led by 17 at halftime and appeared poised to run away with the game, but the Blue Jays shot nearly 49 percent in the second half en route to 55 points and closed to within seven points late in the game.
The Anoka-Ramsey size advantage proved to be the difference as three Golden Ram forwards recorded double-doubles.
Ontario Chapman had 20 points and 13 rebounds, Devin Wade-Henderson had 20 points and 12 rebounds, while Anthony Baker put up 20 points and 13 rebounds off the bench. The three combined to shoot 25 of 42 from the field as Anoka-Ramsey shot 47.3 percent overall.
Anoka-Ramsey improves to 10-7 overall, 3-1 in the MCAC Southern Division, and will host Rochester on Wednesday at 7:30pm.
