Jimmies men's basketball attempt to go to 8-0 at Midland

The Jimmies are looking to go to 8-0 for the first since at least 2005.

We are part of The Trust Project.

The road warriors hit the road again as the No. 10 University of Jamestown men’s basketball team goes to Midland University at 7:45 p.m. on Nov. 20 at the Wilkert Events Center. This is the Jimmies' (7-0,1-0) sixth road game of the season in eight games. The Warriors (5-2,0-1) are 2-0 at home coming into this game.

The Jimmies are coming into this game after taking down Dakota Wesleyan 77-67 on Nov. 17. The Warriors arrive at this game after losing 80-63 to Concordia University on Nov. 17.

The two teams have played 10 times since 2008 with the Jimmies owning a 10-0 record. The last time the two teams played was earlier this year on Feb. 6, with the Jimmies winning 100-74. The Jimmies were led in that game by Mason Walters’ 21 points and 15 rebounds.

The Jimmies key to this game is to maintain their level of competitiveness, head coach Danny Neville said.

“I mean just continuing to compete and continuing to play together,” Neville said.

After Lucas Schumacher's incredible hustle play that kept him out of the remainder of the first half and all of the second half of the Jimmies win over DWU, Neville says that Schumacher is a game-time decision in this game with a hip injury.

In the Warriors seven games this season, they are being led by Bo Sandquist’s 16.4 points per game and 6.9 rebounds per game. The senior is shooting 47% from the field and 42% from three point land this season. As a result, the Jimmies are hoping to try to get him off the three point line.

“He’s a shooter so we have to push him off the line and not let him shoot threes and make every one of his points tough,” Neville said.

This season, the Jimmies are led by Mason Walters’ 24.4 points per game on 62% shooting. Walters also leads the team with 12.1 rebounds per game. The Jimmies' leading passer is Marc Kjos with 3.9 assists per game.
