“(Oakley) came out on fire,” NRHEG coach Pat Churchill said. “Defensively we did a good job on USC.”

Baker buried his first three three-pointers and the Panthers never looked back.

Tyler Raimann added 14 points for the Panthers.

USC senior Ryan Kloos scored 12 points in the loss.

NRHEG will host Blooming Prairie on Tuesday.

USC (3-9) will travel to Fairmont on Monday.
