In an historic first-ever (that I am aware of) match-up between Jimtown and Mishawaka in boys basketball, the Jimmies came up a hair short at the end of the game. The final score was 42 to 35 in favor of the Cavemen. The two teams went back and forth with nobody holding more than a 5 point advantage until the end of the game when the Jimmies had to foul to stop the clock. The Cavemen hit their free throws and that was that.
Turnovers in both halves killed the Jimmies and several unforced turnovers at critical times in the 4th quarter quashed any chance to forge into the lead. Jimtown will return to action at Cook Court on Tuesday the 19th as we play host to the Goshen Red______s. The JV game will begin at 6:00pm with the varsity to follow
