W-F led 39-28 at halftime, but Manawa used an 11-2 run at the end of the half after trailing by as many as 20 points.
The Wolves began chipping away at the lead in the second half and eventually cut it to 49-46 on Sam Welch’s two free throws with 9:37 remaining, but never got any closer, as the Indians quickly pushed the lead back to 10 by hitting eight straight free throws.
