The night started with back-up point guard Maggie Seter singing the national anthem and ended with a 36-point win for the Jimmies.
Everything in between was pretty good too as 18th-ranked Jamestown College steamrolled Dakota State 85-49 in its final regular season home game Wednesday night.
The Jimmies, who won for the 23rd time in 28 games, led 16-2 early and then dominated the second half to the
tune of 48-21.
"We play so well together, that's the main thing for us," said Kayla Roemmich, one of three seniors honored before the game. "We just care about winning. Nothing else really matters."
Bridget Schuneman, the 1,000-point career scorer and Roemmich were two of three Jimmies in double figures with 21 and 12 points, respectively.
The final result was no surprise. The Trojans are 6-19 and will not qualify for the A.I.I. Tournament. It was the third win over Dakota State for the Jimmies, but holding any team under 50 is a feat.
"Defensively, I was really proud of the way we played," JC coach Greg Ulland said. "You only give up 21 points in a half, that's not easy to do. I thought our effort and intensity was really good right to the end."
