JC men get weekend sweep

Two ranked teams, two wins for Jamestown College.

After beating No. 22 South Dakota Mines on Friday night, the Jimmies followed with a hard-fought 63-61 win over No. 24 Black Hills State on Saturday at the Civic Center.

Mark Potorff had  a chance to tie at the buzzer, but the Jimmies made him take a contested shot that was off the mark as time expired.

The Jimmies improved to 3-1 in the DAC and 12-6 overall and have a good chance to be ranked when the new poll comes out on Monday.

Black Hills State advanced to the NAIA Final Four last season, but fell to 11-6 and 1-2 in conference play.

Hans Hoeg and C.J. Peeters had 18 points each to lead the Jimmies.
