Darsean Woodson tallied 16 points, eight assists and seven steals to lead the Central Lakes College Raiders to a 97-80 victory over the Minnesota West Blue Jays during Friday's Winter Classic Brainerd.

N'Gai Dixon led the Raiders with 24 points and Radamus Jones tallied 18. Davaghndre Jones finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds and Alex Koch scored 10 for the 9-3 Raiders, who finished with 19 assists as a team.

"You could tell we were on break," said Raiders head coach Jim Russell. "The best part is we feel like we didn't play as well as we would like to, but we still put up 97 points. That tells you a little bit about our offense and how fast it's moving. Defensively we could have done a better job. It was our first game back from break, again."

The Raiders have won six straight, including an 85-51 win over Minnesota West Dec. 13, shot just 25 percent from 3-point (6-of-24), but hit on 79 percent of their free throws.
