Second-half surge lifts Jimmies past Trojans


A second-half 3-point blitz carried the Jimmies to their seventh straight win Wednesday night.

Down 34-31 at halftime, the University of Jamestown opened the second half with a 16-1 run and never looked back, solidifying their grip on the top spot in the North Star Athletic Association with an 80-69 win over Dakota State.

The Jimmies crawled over the .500 mark with the win at 12-11, and at 4-0 in the conference, are two games up on the pack halfway through the NSAA slate.
