The Raiders tacked on another point with Bryan Dworek’s free throw with 15.7 seconds left, but the Rovers misfired twice on possessions that could’ve tied or won the game at the end, first a turnover and then Carter Adams’ 30-foot 3-point attempt just before the final buzzer.

The Dutch fought back in the final eight minutes and had a chance to take the lead, down two, 49-47, when Nathan Schneider got an open look from the top of the 3-point circle. But his shot was too strong, and DuBois hit a pair of free throws to seal the win.

Manduley led the Beavers with 14 points with Husted, who was named tournament MVP, completing his second double-double in as many nights with 11 points and 10 rebounds.

Schneider led St. Marys with 16 points despite sitting out a large chunk of the first half in foul trouble. Austin Goodrow added eight tallies.
