The University of Jamestown women’s basketball team returns home hoping to avoid losing three in a row when they host Dakota Wesleyan University at 6 p.m.on Nov. 17. The Jimmies (3-2,0-1) return to Harold Newman Arena for the first time since Oct. 23, after three consecutive road games. This game serves as the second game in the Tigers (3-1,0-1) five game road trip.

The Jimmies are looking to avoid losing three games in a row for the first time since earlier this year, from Feb.3-Feb.10. That losing streak was ended when the Jimmies beat Dakota Wesleyan 75-69.

The Jimmies are 5-2 when hosting the Tigers, with their last home loss coming on Feb.4, 2019, in a 98-92 four overtime game.
