A hot shooting Valley City State Men's Basketball team held off a second half charge by Jamestown College to pick up the 69-64 win at the W. E. Osmon Fieldhouse.
The Vikings shot 63.2% in the second half on their way to 52.2% for the game including ten of 24 from the three point line. The Vikings would need that as Jamestown College cut a nine point halftime deficit that ballooned to as much as 16 points with six minutes remaining, to four points with 45 seconds to go.
Rebounding kept the Jimmies in the game as they out rebounded the home squad 41-27 including 17 offensive rebounds.
Sekani Milligen paced three Vikings in double figures with 17 points, while Aaron Duske followed with 13 and John Raquel dropped in 12 for Valley City State.
The win moves the Vikings to 18-5 on the season. Next up, Valley City State travels to Mayville State University on Saturday for a 6:00 pm tip-off.
