Kragt missed just two shots, going 7-for-9 from the field and making a career-best four three-pointers en route to a 21-point effort. Trent Hilbrands netted 18 points, 16 in the final half, while Jay Small (15), Parker Mulder (12) and Grant Rohrer (10) also scored in double figures.

After trading baskets early, Jamestown went on a 14-0 run to take the lead for good, 20-10, on nine-straight points scored by Kevin Oberweiser.

Still and eight point game (42-34), Jamestown used another big run, outscoring Northwestern 15-0, for a commanding 63-42 lead at the half. The Jimmies shot 60% from both the field and from the arc, knocking down 12-of-20 three-point attempts.
