The 11th-ranked Jimmie women will see both ends of the spectrum from a competition standpoint this weekend.
Friday, as expected, Jamestown College had little trouble securing win No. 11, beating Presentation College 92-63 in Aberdeen.
In improving to 11-1, the Jimmies shot 52 percent and were led by 18 points and seven rebounds from senior Bridget Schuneman.
“From an offensive and rebounding standpoint, we played well. Defensively, this wasn’t our best game by any stretch,” coach Greg Ulland said. “Just in general, we’ll have to play much better (today), or that one could get ugly.”
That’s because the Jimmies head to Grand Forks to face UND, where Ulland was an assistant for four seasons before returning to his alma mater.
“They’re big, physical, athletic. … It’s going to be a big challenge for us, but we’re excited about it,” he said. “It’s another chance to get out there and play some ball.”
Kayla Roemmich was the only other Jimmie in double figures, finishing with 12 points. Nine others scored in the game as they made 31 of their 59 shots.
“We had a big height advantage and we did a pretty good job recognizing that,” Ulland said.
Another positive sign was point guard Hannah Steele playing 15 minutes in the game. Steele rolled an ankle last Saturday against Dickinson State. The junior All-American is still hobbled, but told Ulland the wheel is gradually feeling better.
“We’d like to have her at full strength when we’re going to play (a team like UND). But the program can’t just be about one person. Others players have to step up,” Ulland said.
