Jimmies top Bemidji State

Bemidji State started the season 2-0 with a close exhibition loss to UND and getting to play in Madison, Wisc., against the Big Ten’s Badgers.
But Tuesday night, Jamestown College went into the Beavers’ gym and left with a 72-69 exhibition win over the Division-II team for the Jimmies’ best win of the season, even though it does not officially count in the W-L column.
“It’s a good win for us, even though, obviously it doesn’t count in our win-loss record,” coach Jeff Trumbauer said. “It was a good game to play. I thought we began to run some of our best offense we’ve had all year and anytime you can win a close game, particularly on the road, it gives your team confidence that you can get the job done at the very end.”
The Jimmies shot 54 percent in the game, making 27 of their 50 shots led once again by the hot hand of senior Hans Hoeg, who scored a game-high 21 points, including burying 5 of 8 from deep. In his last two games he’s gone 12 of 18 from three-point range.
