Jake Hagler (SR/Cando, N.D.) scored 20 points, dished out six assists, and grabbed five rebounds to lead four UJ players in double figures as the Jimmies stayed two games back of conference leader Dickinson State with an 82-65 win over Viterbo (Wis.) Saturday.
Logan Brown (SR/Roseville, Minn.) finished with 18 points, five rebounds, and four steals. Sam Johnson (JR/Mora, Minn.) added 12 points off the bench, and Jon Purintun (SO/Linton, N.D.) chipped in with 10 as Jamestown (12-11 overall, 8-4 NSAA) won its third straight game and fifth of its last six.
The Jimmies started the game quickly, taking a 9-2 lead after four points from Riley Henderson, a bucket by Brown, and a triple from Hagler. Viterbo responded by scoring 10 of the next 16 points, and Ethan Haberman's basket with 12:49 in the first made it 15-12.
An unfazed UJ squad countered with a 16-6 run of its own over the next 5:21 to take a 13-point lead. That lead would get no smaller than 12, and by halftime, turned into an 18-point cushion.
After Purintun's basket gave Jamestown its biggest lead of the night at 19, 54-35 with 14:19 left, Viterbo gradually chipped away and got within nine points, 72-63, with 2:39 left in the game.
The veteran Jimmies closed out the game by scoring 10 of the final 12 points and hanging on for a 17-point victory.
Jake Bamke led all scorers with 21 points for the V-Hawks (13-11, 5-6 NSAA). Haberman ended with 14 points, and Erik Engelstad had nine points and eight rebounds. Jared Fleischmann chipped in with five points and eight assists.
Jamestown hosts Presentation (S.D.) on Wednesday while Viterbo's next game is on Friday when Valley City State (N.D.) comes to visit.
