Eddie Kramer and Ben Soldwisch combined for 46 points in leading the Nevis boys basketball team to a 70-65 Northland Conference victory at Red Lake on Jan. 22.

Kramer made five 3-pointers and scored 24 points, Soldwisch added a career-high 22 points and Luke DeWulf chipped in a double-double of 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Tigers. Kramer scored 17 points in the first half as Nevis built a 35-30 lead. Soldwisch had eight rebounds and Michael Landquist led the Tigers with four assists and four steals. Jack McNamee had four rebounds and four assists while DeWulf dished out three assists. Kramer and Logan Funk had two steals each as the Tigers improved to 3-3 in the conference and 8-6 overall. Nevis won despite playing without starting guards Derek Lindow and Ty Warrington.

Delwyn Holthusen Jr. led Red Lake with 24 points while Andre Harrison (17), Justin Barrett (11) and Riley Chaboyea (10) also scored in double figures. The Warriors fell to 4-3 in conference games and 8-7 overall. Cass Lake-Bena (5-0), Walker-Hackensack-Akeley (5-2) and Pine River-Backus (5-3) top the conference standings.

"After losing at home to Northome, a trip to Red Lake didn't look too appealing, especially with the absence of two of our guards. We were pleasantly surprised as the guys stepped up and gutted out a win," said Nevis head coach Scott Kramer. "Kramer got back on track from behind the arc. His shooting led to a box-and-1 defense on him that left the middle of the floor open. DeWulf went to the high post and Soldwisch low and we were able to capitalize. Funk and McNamee came up huge for us as Funk did an outstanding job of running the point and McNamee was great defensively for Landquist, who got into foul trouble. It was a great bounce-back win for us after a disappointing loss against Northome. It gives us momentum as we are in the midst of our conference schedule."
