"We had a very balanced effort today that was fueled by our defense," commented M State Head Coach Shawn Sorenson. "Isaiah Lemke was our defensive leader all game and the second half catalyst responsible for creating multiple fastbreak opportunities for his teammates. Our sophomore captains carried us this weekend and it is a great way to start the new year as we preepare for our Southern Division schedule."
Trevor Ehlard scored 16 and Demonta Harris 14 for Itasca.
M State will open Southern Division play in Willmar on Wednesday night with a game against Ridgewater.
