Boden Skunberg sat almost the entire first half but he still broke a record.
The Jays defeated Bismarck High 93-88 in the team's first road game of the season. Skunberg, a 6-foot-5 guard, broke the Blue Jay all-time career scoring record in the Jays' third win of the season. The North Dakota State University basketball recruit surpassed the 1,345-point record set by Don Brugman in 1978 posting 18 points and now sits at 1,359 points in his four-year starting career.
While Skunberg was the third-leading scorer for the Jays Friday, teammate Brooks Carroll boasted 20 points of his own. Carroll sank six 3-pointers -- five alone in the first half. Junior guard Carson Lamp also posted a steady presence in the full 36 minutes. Lamp posted five buckets from the 3-point line and totaled 29 points to lead the Jays on the board.
The Demons posed a challenge to the Jays tying the game at 45 apiece to end the first half. Junior guard Max Tschosik put up 18 points while Treysen Eaglestaff drained 17 more for head coach Jordan Wilhelm. Logan Schaubert and Gunner Swanson led BHS in 3s each with a pair.
It was a hard-fought battle on the hardwoods for consecutive win No. 30. The team will be back in action on Tuesday. The Jays will host Legacy at 7:45 p.m. at Jerry Meyer Arena
Kameron Selvig sank five 3-pointers just in the first half Friday night.
The senior forward for the Jamestown High School girls basketball team helped lead the Jays to a 74-46 road win against Bismarck High. The Blue Jays improved to 3-0 overall and 2-0 in the West Region. BHS fell to 1-1 and 0-1 in WDA play.
Selvig totaled 17 points against the Demons and was joined by a pair of juniors in the 3s category. Guard Jordan Finck hit a trio for nine points, while Grace Hegerle sank another. Hegerle made the first varsity basket in the newly renovated BHS gym, scoring seven of the Jays' opening nine points. The 5-foot-10 forward topped the scoring charts with 25 points and posted a perfect 8 of 8 from the foul line.
Jilee Goulas led the Demons with 25 buckets and the high scorer kept the Jays' on their toes, but the Jays' had a few more weapons on the bench.
Freshman Ella Falk was the third Blue Jay to hit double digits for Jamestown head coach Andy Skunberg. Falk shot for 11 draining another three against Goulas and the rest of the BHS defense. Katherine Horgan and Jessa Anderson combined for six points while freshmen Katie Trumbauer and Katie Falk each put up a field goal rounding out the Blue Jays scoring.
The Blue Jays will take to the hardwoods again on Tuesday hosting Bismarck Legacy. Tip-off is scheduled for 5:45 p.m. at Jerry Meyer Arena.
