JAMESTOWN, N.D. — Will Sesay was the Board Man for the Winnipeg Wesmen Friday night.
The fifth-year senior guard set a career-high with 17 rebounds as the Wesmen men's basketball team got past the Jamestown College Jimmies 86-77 in a non-conference contest south of the border.
Sesay added nine points, four assists and two steals for the Wesmen, who improved to 2-1 in non-conference play. Winnipeg will play at Valley City State Saturday afternoon.
Narcisse Ambanza and Don Dayrit both had 21 points to lead the way for the Wesmen, who led 48-45 at the half. Ambanza added six rebounds and six assists and shot 5-for-10 from three. Dayrit was 7-for-15 from the field despite going 2-for-9 from three.
Spas Nikolov added 11 points on 5-for-8 shooting for Winnipeg.
"Today was a good win for us," Wesmen head coach Mike Raimbault said. "We responded when they made their run and managed to get defensive stops to help us come out with the win."
Jack Talley had a game-high 32 to pace the Jimmies, who compete in the NAIA. Brock Schrom and Terrell Alfred had 10 each.
