This is the first time a Raider men's team has won its first 15 games without a loss. The Raiders defeated Rainny River, 99-69, on Sat., Dec. 18 after demloishing Fond du Lac, 100-61, on Fri., Dec. 17. Marcus Ayala led all scorers with 22 points in the Sat. game, while Anthony Kelly came off the bench to score 18. The Raiders have scored more than 90 points in 10 games. They next travel to Fergus Falls Jan. 5 to play Minnesota State Community and Technical College.

After trailing the Vikings at the half, 36-25, CLC outscored them 35-29 in the last half but came up short due to poor shooting (32 percent).
