ANOKA - Three times was a charm for the Northern Division's No. 2 seeded Central Lakes Friday as the Raiders defeated the South's third seeded Minnesota West 95-82 in the quarterfinals of the Minnesota College Athletic Conference state and Region 13 tournament Friday.

Radamus Jones led the Raiders with 27 points, but all five starters reached double figures.

It's the Raiders' third win over the BlueJays this season. CLC won 85-51 Dec. 13 and 97-80 Jan. 2.

CLC forced 17 BlueJays' turnovers and scored 20 point off of those. Darsean Woodson recorded five steals.

"All five starters were in double figures today for the first time this year," said head coach Jim Russell. "It was a total team effort and we wore them down the last five minutes."
