Jimmie women upset

It was ugly at The Bubble for the fifth-ranked Jimmie women Thursday night.

Valley City State built a big early lead and sailed past the DAC leaders 71-54.

The Jimmies led just once (3-2), but from there it was all Vikings. They led by more than 10 for much of the game and led by as many as 22 in the second half.

"It was ugly. This was a group effort. It wasn’t just 1 or 2 girls. We struggled as a team all night long," coach Mark Wiest said.

It was the first conference loss for the Jimmies (4-1), who fell to 15-4 overall.

They’re at Dakota State and Mayville State next weekend.
