Jimmies’ streak snapped
Jamestown North Dakota 121 3rd St NW 58401

Two overtimes ended in a split for the Jimmie basketball teams Saturday night in Madison, S.D.

After the third-ranked University of Jamestown women avoided a surprising upset bid by Dakota State in the opener, the Trojans clipped the UJ men’s 10-game winning streak in the nightcap.

The Jimmies already had the regular season title and No. 1 seed for the conference tournament locked up. They’ll host the winner of Presentation College and Mayville State Saturday at 6 p.m. at the Civic Center in the semifinals.

The Jimmie women, seeded second, host Valley City State in the semifinals Sunday at 3 p.m. also at the Civic Center.

Trojans 96, Jimmies 88, OT

Overtime turned into a shootout with the Trojans left standing at the end.

Dakota State scored 12 of the first 15 points in the extra session and ended the five-minute frame with 23 total.

The loss was the first in conference play for the Jimmies (15-12, 7-1) and first setback of any kind in 2014.

Mark Hoge continued to pile up numbers, finishing with 29 points, eight rebounds and three assists.

Brequan Tucker fouled out late in regulation, but not before registering a stat line of 22 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, two steals and a blocked shot.

Taylor Newton added 19 points and sank two of the Jimmies’ 11 3-pointers as they scored 45 second-half points after trailing 38-33 at the break.

Dylan Hale, a one-time Jimmie recruit and former starter at NDSU, poured in 35 points to lead all scorers for Dakota State. Hale is a senior. Marcus Smith added 25 points as the Trojans leveled their record at 14-14.

Jimmies 90, Trojans 82, OT

The Jimmies trailed by as many as 12 points in the first half (37-25), but it looked much more dire in the waning moments when the Trojans went up 76-71 on a 3-pointer from Alyson Drooger with 1:43 left.

But Morgan Mathison answered with a clutch 3-pointer on the ensuing possession and the Jimmies drew even with 18 seconds to play on a hoop by Jordan Bridges with the assist to Hannah Steele.

The Trojans (11-19) had one last chance to win it, but Kylie Westover missed at the horn, sending the game to overtime.

In the extra session, Dakota State scored first, but the next seven went to the Jimmies with a clutch 3-ball from Steele mixed in. She later added a pair of free throws to ice it.

Six Jimmies scored 10 points or more.

Steele had another double-double with 14 points and a whopping 13 assists. Kyra Dewald’s 15 points were a team-high. Jessica Buck and Mathison each had 12 points off the bench. Megan Pold had 11 points and nine rebounds, while Jordan Bridges scored 10, had three assists, three steals and blocked two shots.

The Jimmies (25-2, 7-1) had 22 assists in the game and shot 50 percent (31-62). They did miss 11 free throws (19-30).

The win was the 100th under fourth-year head coach Greg Ulland.
