The Jimmie women's basketball team fell behind early to Viterbo (Wis.), but found their rhythm towards the end of the first quarter and cruised to an 87-44 victory in the first round of the NSAA conference tournament Wednesday night.
Jamestown (23-5) made their first two shots to take a 4-2 lead, but the V-Hawks scored on three straight possessions to pull ahead 8-4.
Viterbo went 5:37 without a point until Riley Budde made a basket with 8:29 in the second quarter to make it 20-10 Jamestown. Second quarter runs of 7-0 and 17-3 for the Jimmies helped the 10-point lead after one turn into a 31-point margin at the break.
Defense again was key for Jamestown, as they held Viterbo to 6-of-29 shooting in the first half and forced 13 Viterbo turnovers. The Jimmies were 14-of-28 and 4-of-8 from downtown in the opening 20 minutes.
The V-Hawks shot much better in the third quarter, connecting on 7-of-12 shots and 4-of-4 from the free throw line, but Jamestown kept up with their hot shooting, making 55 percent (11-of-20) overall in the quarter.
Jablonsky's 17 points off the bench led the Jimmies. She also grabbed four rebounds and recorded three steals. Kyra Dewald (SR/Jamestown, ND) was the other UJ player in double figures with 14. Jamestown also had six players with six or more points on the night. Bryn Woodside (JR/Albert Lea, MN) dished out seven assists, and Jenna Doyle (SO/Princeton, MN)'s five rebounds and four blocked shots were both team highs.
Arissa Geiser haad 14 points and eight rebounds to lead Viterbo, who finishes the season at 3-28. Alyssa Nilssen added nine points and six rebounds while Riley Budde chipped in with six points off the bench.
With the win, Jamestown advances to the conference semifinals on Friday, hosting Mayville State (N.D.). The Comets were 66-63 winners at Bellevue (Neb.) Wednesday. Tipoff from the Jamestown Civic Center is set for 9 p.m.
