The Jamestown Blue Jays boys basketball team made the trip to Williston looking to put an end to their losing streak on Feb. 18. The Blue Jays sprinted out of the gate, taking a 44-24 lead into the half on their way to a 71-54 win over the Coyotes.

The Blue Jays (7-11) have now split the season series against the Coyotes (4-14) after the Coyotes got a 63-61 win on Jan. 7.

After the Jimmies came out of half slowly, head coach Jacoby Lloyd was happy with how they responded.

“We were shooting the ball and moving it well,” Lloyd said. “We had a lull to start the second half but our senior leadership stepped up and we were able to withstand their runs.”

The Blue Jays were led by Adam Kallenbach’s 23 points, with six made threes.


The Coyotes leading scorer was Isiah St. Romain with 22 points.

The Blue Jays are back in action at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 18, when they take on Watford City. The Coyotes return to the court at 7:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 22, to take on Watford City.
