Orr, Jimmies cruise past V-Hawks

The eighth-ranked University of Jamestown's speedy tandem of McKayla Orr and Bryn

Woodside drove the pace on Saturday at Newman Arena.

Orr scored all but one of her game-high 17 points in the first half, as the Jimmies handled

Viterbo (Wis.) 84-37 in North Star Athletic Association action.

A 5-foot-4 guard from Ypsilanti, Orr scored on an easy layup on a nice pass from Woodside to

open the game. Seconds later, she stole the ball at mid-court and converted another layup. Orr

scored the final seven points of the first quarter.

"Our mentality is to go out there and get good pressure," Orr said. "We're small, so we really

work hard to get those stops and traps that make them flustered."

UJ coach Greg Ulland said Orr "established herself" right away.

"It's not running sets or anything — she's just making plays," Ulland said. "That's the stuff we're

trying to get her to do more of. She's so unselfish and such a team player, sometimes she

doesn't establish herself."

Woodside added 14 points, going on a run of her own in the first quarter when she had a pair of

driving layups and a free throw. The combination of Orr and Woodside on both offense and

defense appeared too fast for the V-hawks.

"You can watch all the film you want but until you get on the floor and see how fast and

aggressive they are, you don't quite understand it," UJ coach Greg Ulland said. "It does take

some teams some time. Those two work so well together."

Viterbo was held to only one field goal from the 1:38 mark of the first quarter until 2:41 into the

third quarter — a span of 14 minutes, 19 seconds. The stifling defense helped UJ build a 30-

point lead en route to the win. A 50-32 rebounding advantage also helped.

The Jimmies (4-0 NSAA, 13-2 overall) visit rival Valley City State on Friday night.
