Ryan Boldt and Jon Sevlie each provided 18 points to lead Red Wing in a 74-67 victory over North St. Paul Thursday at the Owatonna Tournament.
Boldt also had four steals and two blocks in the win.
The Wingers led 34-32 at halftime and shot 30 free throws in the second half. That was the difference, Red Wing head coach Doug Toivonen said.
“We did enough in the second half to find a way to win,” he said. “We didn’t play sharp by any means.”
The Wingers (5-3) made 26 of 39 free-throw attempts. Ty Buck scored 11 points for Red Wing while Isaac Toivonen finished with 10 points and five rebounds.
Jake McDonough scored a game-high 19 points for the Polars, including 5-for-8 from behind the 3-point line. Devonne Dickens had 13 points in the loss.
“They shot the ball really well,” Doug Toivonen said. “I didn’t think we were leaving them wide open. They kept on hanging in there and they played really hard. I was very impressed.”
North St. Paul made 7 of 14 3-pointers.
The Wingers play Owatonna Friday at 7:45 p.m.
