Men's College Basketball: Raiders finish fourth

COON RAPIDS — John Jedneak posted 14 points and eight rebounds for the Central Lakes College Raiders, who finished fourth in the MCAC/Region 13 tournament with Sunday’s 73-70 loss to Mesabi Range.

Bryan Gichaba scored 11 points and Danon Briggs finished with six assists on Sunday as the Raiders finished the season 17-13.

“There were 12 lead changes in the game and the biggest lead was by us with eight early in the game,” said Raiders head coach Jim Russell. “It was a tough team to play after a loss late last night. We just didn’t get to the free throw line as much as we wanted to.”

The Raiders fell to the Southern Division’s top-seeded Rochester 104-92 Saturday.

Quincy Bethea scored 23 and Jedneak added 20 points in the loss. Alex Koch scored 15 and Gichaba added 13 for the Raiders.
