A 19-0 first quarter run staked the Jimmie women's basketball team to a 24-4 lead after the first quarter, and No. 12 Jamestown did not look back in an 89-49 win over Viterbo (Wis.) in NSAA conference play Saturday.
UJ's relentless trapping defense forced the V-Hawks into comitting seven turnovers in the opening 10 minutes, and when Viterbo was able to get the ball across halfcourt, the visitors made only two of 12 shots in the quarter.
A night after tying the school record with 20 three-pointers, the Jimmie women's basketball team relied on more of an inside game for their offense. Jamestown attempted only 16 threes, connecting on six, but were 23-of-42 (54.8%) inside the arc. Taylor Hammer (SR/Grand Forks, ND) had 15 points, with nine of them coming from the free throw line, to go along with seven rebounds and two blocked shots.
Kyra Dewald (SR/Jamestown, ND) led the Jimmies (17-4, 12-0 NSAA) with 19 points and six steals. She also added four assists and four rebounds. Paige Emmel (JR/Bismarck, ND) had 14 points off the bench, making 4-of-5 threes. McKayla Orr (JR/Ypsilanti, ND) was also in double figures, scoring 11 points. Jory Mullen (SO/Pierre, SD) chipped in with eight points and five rebounds.
Viterbo opened the second quarter on a 7-1 run to get within 14 points (25-11) at the 7:28 mark. However, an 18-2 Jimmie run over the next 4:10 ballooned the lead to 30 points, all but ending the V-Hawks hopes for a victory against the NSAA's top team.
Alyssa Nilssen had 14 points and seven rebounds for Viterbo (2-23 overall, 1-10 NSAA). Arissa Geiser had 10 points, four rebounds, and three assists.
Jamestown outrebounded Viterbo 42-26 and committed just 13 turnovers compared to 25 for the visitors. The Jimmies also came up with 14 steals and blocked four shots.
Up next for the Jimmies is a home game against Presentation (S.D.) on Wednesday. Viterbo will host Valley City State (N.D.) on Friday.
