Domination. That was the name of the game for the University of Jamestown women’s basketball team as they took down Presentation College 81-34. The win improves the Jimmies record to 3-0 on the season. The loss drops the Saints to 0-2 on the year.

The Jimmies won the tip and Hannah Demars immediately splashed a three. Presentation got on the board with a jumper by Al Morones with 7:50 to go in the first quarter. The Saints called their first timeout with the Jimmies up 9-2 with 5:57 to go in the first quarter.

Out of the timeout, Audrey Rodakowski hit a jumper making it 11-2 in favor of UJ. Brittney Seymour ended the run with the bucket from the free throw with three minutes to go in the first quarter to make the game 11-4 in favor of UJ. Kia Tower missed a layup and then it was caught and put back up by Megan Oswald to put the Jimmies up 20-9 at the end of one.

Josephson used her strength and gets in to start the second quarter, now 22-9. The Saints’ Hayden Leggett hit a three with 7:45 to go in the second quarter to make the game 27-12 in favor of the Jimmies. Macy Savela rippled the net to make the game 43-17 with 80 seconds to go in the second quarter. Seymour got fouled and split the pair at the line to make the game 43-18. Kate Busek’s jumper at the elbow ended the first half with the Jimmies up 45-18.

Morones hits a jumper to make the game 25-20 to start the second half. Tower hits an up and under to make the game 47-20 for the Jimmies first points of the second half with 8 minutes to go in the third quarter. Madelyn Schmidt got the steal at midcourt and laid it up to make the game 51-20 with 6:30 to go in the third quarter. The Jimmies Lexiss Trygg laid it up making the game 61-30 in favor of the Jimmies.


Sarah Lenz banked a three in with 6:45 to go putting the Jimmies up 66-30 much to the delight of the Jimmies bench who were on their feet screaming for their teammate. Julisa Vega got the Saints' first field goal of the quarter to make the game 76-33 with three minutes to go. The Jimmies dribbled the clock out to secure the 81-34 victory.

The Jimmies only gave up four points in the fourth quarter of this game and forced 19 turnovers, something that makes head coach Thad Sankey really happy.

“I thought it was really good. A couple of things, one we started out with the intensity level that I think we needed to,” Sankey said. “I thought our offense slowed down towards the end of the first quarter and then I thought our defense really filled that gap and filled that void. So, that was what we were looking for when we went to our zone defense.”

The Jimmies are back in action at 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 6 when they go to Mayville State. The Saints are back in action at 5 p.m. on Oct.29 at Hastings.
