HOW IT HAPPENED

Dordt fell behind the Jamestown Jimmies early in the first half but evened the score by halftime and controlled the second half on the way to a 24 point win in non-conference basketball.

Dordt surrendered 33 points in the first ten minutes of play and trailed 33-19 after a Jake Hagler three-point basket.  The Defenders started working against the lead with a pair of three-point baskets by Alec Henrickson and a two point basket by Andrew O’Donnell.  Henrickson had the hot hand as he knocked down a lay up with 3:46 to give Dordt its first lead of the contest at 43-41 and the Defenders and Jimmies were tied 50-50 at the intermission behind Henrickson’s 20 points.

Dordt trailed briefly in the second half but took the lead for good on a Leighton Sampson basket and O’Donnell followed with a three-point play.  A three-point basket by Dalton Franken gave Dordt a 73-63 lead with 13:24 remaining in the game and Jamestown got no closer than seven and the final 11:09 was played at a double digit difference as the Defenders won their fourth game in a row.
