MADISON, Wis. - Marcus Ayala and Ahmed Farah finished with 11 each, but the Central Lakes Raiders were undone in a 68-67 loss in the MATC Border Battle Basketball Classic Friday night.
CLC sent the Madison WolfPack to the charity stripe 26 times.
Ayala handed out three assists, while Nash Faulk and Nick Grewe added nine points each, Eric Peeters collected a team-high five rebounds and Marcus McDonald picked three steals.
"I thought overall we had a great effort," Raiders coach Jim Russell said. "To come such a long ways to play the best team in the conference to come away with just a one point loss that was good. We have a few things we can correct, but overall it was good."
