Jake Hagler and the Jimmies were determined to have a better showing on Saturday night. They did and it helped Alan Magnani to his first win as head coach at the University of Jamestown. After a crisp first half, the Jimmies bogged down over the final 20 minutes, but still were able to churn out a 73-64 win over previously undefeated Carroll College at the Civic Center. "We wanted to prove to everybody, including ourselves, that we were better than what we showed last week," Hagler said. "There's no doubt we have enough talent.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.--; Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer was asked the dreaded "must-win" question Wednesday --; four days before traveling to Tampa Bay to play a Buccaneers team that has the league's worst defense and the NFC's worst record (1-5). Typically, when a coach is asked to declare a "must-win" situation, his team is falling rapidly behind in its division and has recently experienced some blown opportunities. Check and check. The Vikings are 2-5, three games behind the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers in the NFC North, and have lost to both division leaders.
Every season it seems the University of Jamestown women's basketball team loses significant players. But the expectations, and the wins, always mount again the next year. That's the position head coach Greg Ulland has his program in, though another new season brings new challenges. This year it's replacing All-American point guard Hannah Steele, who will go down as one of the greats in program history. Steele finished her career with 1,369 points and 623 assists. "Hannah was special," Ulland said.

The University of Jamestown bounced back in a big way on Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa. After two losses to a pair of ranked teams on Friday at the Grand View Invitational Tournament, the 20th-ranked Jimmies beat No. 15 Evangel University (Mo.) and Baker University (Kan.) on Saturday. Coach Jon Hegerle accurately forecasted his team's performance. Prior to leaving he said they typically struggle re-acclimating to top-level teams, but usually get back up to speed on day 2. "It was kind of typical in the way it's gone for us at this tournament," Hegerle said.
It looked like game 1 of the season for the Jimmies on Sunday afternoon. The University of Jamestown men's basketball team struggled on both ends of the floor in losing to the University of Regina, 82-63. It was the fourth game of the season for the Cougars, and third in three days. They beat Dickinson State and lost to Mayville State before finishing up at the Civic Center. "Give them credit. They outplayed us in every way," said UJ head coach Alan Magnani. "There are no excuses. I was really disappointed with the way we executed offensively and defensively.
