BELLEVUE, Neb.-- Plenty of attention has been given to the offensive numbers put up by the Jimmie women's basketball team this season.
This just in: the defense is pretty good too.
After allowing Bellevue to score 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting in the first quarter, the Jimmies (21-4, 14-0 NSAA) clamped down on defense, giving up just 21 points the rest of the way in a 68-37 win against the Bruins Saturday afternoon.
Bellevue (14-14, 7-7 NSAA) made just eight of its 34 shots over the final three quarters and turned the ball over 28 times. Jamestown capitalized on those turnovers, converting them into 38 points.
McKayla Orr (JR/Ypsilanti, ND) led UJ with 11 points and added four steals and four rebounds. Jory Mullen (SO/Pierre, SD) joined her in double figures with 10. Kyra Dewald (SR/Jamestown, ND) chipped in with nine points, five rebounds, and five steals, while Bryn Woodside (JR/Albert Lea, MN) added eight points, five rebounds, and three assists.
Angeliece Tucker led the Bruins with 11 points and six rebounds. Ryleigh McCartney added six points and five rebounds.
Taylor Cormier gave Bellevue a 6-3 lead with 7:57 left in the first quarter, but a Jablonsky three-pointer capped off a 12-2 run that saw Jamestown take a seven-point lead with 3:09 in the quarter. McCartney connected from downtown to cut the Jimmie lead to 26-23 with 5:20 in the half, but UJ scored the final 11 points to take a commanding 14-point halftime lead.
Jamestown wraps up its regular season with a pair of NSAA road games next weekend. Friday the Jimmies are at Dickinson State (N.D.), then travel to Valley City State (N.D.) Saturday.
