OMAHA, Neb.-- When the Jimmie women's basketball team defeated Waldorf (Iowa) 111-48 on January 27, it marked the first time in 70 games since Jamestown topped the 100-point barrier. Now, 100 points seems to be the norm, rather than the exception.
McKayla Orr (JR/Ypsilanti, ND) scored a season-high 16 points and UJ reached triple digits for the third straight game, taking down Grace (Neb.) 101-48 Friday night.
The Jimmies have now scored 100 or more in four of their last five games, and this time it was Orr who led the scoring charge.
Her 16 points included 4-of-5 shooting from three, tying a personal best. Orr was also busy on the defensive end, recording five steals to tie her career single-game record.
Jamestown (20-4) entered Friday's game ranked fourth in the country in three-point field goals made per game, with 9.8, and connected on 12 more against the Royals. Kyra Dewald (SR/Jamestown, ND) sank three, Alexis Watts (SR/Miller, SD) two, and Bryn Woodside (JR/Albert Lea, MN), Paige Emmel (JR/Bismarck, ND), and Emily Overby (FR/Thompson, ND) also hit from beyond the arc.
Back-to-back threes from Watts and a three-point play by Jory Mullen (SO/Pierre, SD) highlighted a 12-2 Jimmie run to open the game, and Jamestown never looked back. UJ led by 23 after the first, and despite making just 9 of 23 shots in the second quarter, took a 33-point lead into the break.
The Jimmies turned 29 Grace turnovers into 40 points and outrebounded the Royals 51-39. Marina Nowak (SO/Rogers, MN)'s seven rebounds led Jamestown.
UJ had assists on 24 of its 40 field goals with Lissy McCulloch (SO/Mountain Iron, MN)'s seven leading all players.
Tschida Johnson led Grace with 15 points. Darrielle Evans added nine points and four assists while Kayla Bloodworth chipped in with eight points, 14 rebounds, and six blocked shots.
Jamestown is back to NSAA conference action Saturday at Bellevue (Neb.)
