WORTHINGTON — Even after fighting off a slightly sluggish start in their shot selection, the Minnesota West Bluejays made quick work of distancing themselves from Ridgewater College in their mens basketball contest Saturday afternoon at the Center for Health and Wellness in Worthington. Minnesota West seemingly rolled in all aspects of the game through much of the tilt’s final 26 minutes and ousted the Warriors, 80-67. There was trouble starting for the Jays and trouble finishing, but as they say, a win is a win.

The result, a 66-7 triumph for the hometown Trojans, caps a run over the last several days in which the team has won eight of their last nine outings.

WORTHINGTON —The Minnesota West Community and Technical College Lady Jays have long been known for their offensive prowess but, as the last few games have indicated, they’re not playing too badly on the defensive end either. Masking early shooting woes against Riverland Community College on Wednesday night in Worthington with staunch defense, West eventually came around in both phases of the game to double up on the Blue Devils, 88-44, handing them their sixth loss in the last seven outings. “This is how it’s supposed to be,” Lady Jays head coach Mike Fury said following the triumph.
