The Bluejays shot 51 percent from the field but went scoreless during critical stretches. They trailed by 12 points at halftime and were unable to cut the deficit to fewer than 10 points in the second half.

"Offensively, we did some good things, but we had a stretch where we missed a bunch of good looks," Minnesota West coach Justin Heckenlaible said. "They made shots at critical times, and we couldn't."

Rochester shot 59 percent from the field.

Dan Stryzinski scored 11 points, and Jordan Buddenhagen added 10 for Minnesota West, which will host Riverland on Wednesday.
