Mason Walters continued his strong, early run of play for the University of Jamestown men's basketball team Wednesday in Dickinson.

The freshman forward posted game- and career-highs of 25 points, 18 rebounds, leading the 16th-ranked Jimmies to a 91-83 victory over the Dickinson State Blue Hawks. The Jimmies led the 0-3 Hawks by 20 in the second half, a team receiving votes in the NAIA top 25 preseason coaches' poll.

Walters, the former 6-foot-8 Jamestown Blue Jay, converted 10 of 13 from the field and 3 of 4 from 3-point range. Walters has started in three of Jamestown's first six games and is averaging 15.8 points and 10 rebounds per night.

The Jimmies (5-1) shot 50% from the field and outrebounded the Hawks 57-27, 14-5 offensively. Terrell Alfred (20 points), Jack Talley (16) and Isaiah Dobson (10) all reached double figures in scoring for UJ.

Jamestown travels to Valley City State (2-2) on Nov. 13, having defeated the Vikings 104-86 at Harold Newman Arena on Oct. 28.

Noelle Josephson scored seven of UJ's final eight points to help Jimmie women's basketball upend Dickinson State 79-76. Josephson converted 6 of 12 from the field, including a trio of 3-pointers, and finished with a team-high 10 points as Jamestown improved to 3-1 overall.

The Jimmies trailed 41-31 in the first half but fought back from a seven-point halftime deficit. UJ's Grace Benz also nailed three triples and scored 16, while Olivia Anderson posted 10 points and six rebounds.

UJ (3-1) will look to keep its momentum at Valley City State (2-2) next Wednesday.
