Jimmies surge by Ashford

CLINTON – Facing off against its second nationally-ranked opponent in as many days, the Ashford University women’s basketball team battled Jamestown College (N.D.) tough Saturday, but in the end it wasn’t enough.

Junior Janell Anthony led the Saints with 12 points and freshman Sarah Vozel grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds, but the sixth-ranked Jimmies escaped Kehl Arena with a 59-46 win.

Jamestown jumped to an early lead, but the Saints (4-9) knotted the game three times in the first half. However, Ashford couldn’t find the go-ahead basket and trailed 26-21 at the half.

Defense continued to be the story in the second half, but the Jimmies pulled away thanks to a 16-3 run over a 6:52 stretch to take a 47-33 lead. AU got within nine points late in the game but no closer as the Jimmies improved to 11-1.

The iron was unkind to the Saints, as AU managed to connect on only 28.8 percent (15-for-52) of its shots. Jamestown shot 40.7 percent.

AU dominated the battle on the glass, pulling down 46 boards to 27 for the Jimmies. The Saints were especially aggressive in following their shots, hauling down a season-high 20 offensive rebounds.
