JAMESTOWN — Holding a three-point lead going into the second half, the University of Jamestown men’s basketball team went on a seven-point run to break the game open against Dickinson State, which the Jimmies would win 86-76 on Friday, Dec. 14 at Harold Newman Arena. As he typically does, senior guard Kevin Oberweiser paced the Jimmies, netting 26 points thanks to four 3-pointers, while also earning a team-high nine rebounds. Behind him, senior guard Jon Purintun added 17 points.
With a 3-pointer from sophomore Grant Gerving, the Glen Ullin-Hebron basketball team went ahead 35-34 over the Mott-Regent with six and a half minutes left in the third quarter. The Wildfire answered with basket from senior forward Teddy Mayer before head coach Pat Perkins called timeout. The Bearcats got the ball back soon after the teams took the floor again and Gerving sunk another from three-point territory. That one did the trick as his team led the rest of the game.

As the region has been eyeing the likes of Hettinger-Scranton and Bowman County, the Beach girls basketball team has quietly kicked off its season with a 5-0 start.

Like Killdeer, and a few other teams in the region, the Heart River girls basketball team lost a lot of senior talent. As the Cougars and the Cowboys squared off at the Roughrider Tournament on Dec. 4, the teams battled it out until the reigning Region 7 champion Cowboys won 41-38. Thankfully for Heart River, that game didn't count in the region standings, but they'll get another crack at Killdeer at home at 7 p.m.
Limiting Glen Ullin-Hebron to just four points in the second quarter, Bowman County put up 18 of their own, breaking the game open en route to a 69-61 win on Thursday, Dec. 13 at the Knights of Columbus Center.
