“When things go so well offensively you forget about the defensive end,” Wolverines head coach Dan Fredrickson said. “We need a little more concentrated effort on defense.”

The Wolverines went into the game allowing a state-best 35.9 points per game. They were also 15th in the state in points scored at 70.9 per game.

Andrew Lau led the Wolverines with 25 points and Tyler Woodside had 16 points and nine rebounds.

Ryan Dempewolf had 12 points on four 3-pointers.

The Southeast Conference-leading Wolverines host Immanuel Lutheran at 7:15 p.m. Thursday and travel to Lanesboro (5-2, 4-1) Friday in showdown on the league’s top two teams.
