JAMESTOWN, N.D. — It wasn't always pretty, but the Winnipeg Wesmen found a way to win again on the road. 

Narcisse Ambanza had 19 points and seven rebounds Saturday as the Wesmen men's basketball team defeated the Valley City State Vikings 73-66 in a non-conference game at the University of Jamestown.

Ambanza was 3-for-6 from three and 7-for-15 from the field to pace the Wesmen, who have played all four of their non-conference games this season away from home and have three wins to show for it.

The Wesmen will return home next weekend for the Lea-Marc Printing Tournament.

Dwight Dixon added 11 points for the Wesmen, who also got 10 points from Spas Nikolov.

Winnipeg held the NAIA Vikings to 3-for-11 shooting from three and 45.3 per cent from the field. The Wesmen went 47.3 per cent from the field and 6 of 18 from three.

The Wesmen overcame a modest 35-32 deficit at half time and used a 14-1 run over the first 6:07 of the second half to turn the tables.

Logan Nelson had 15 points to lead VCSU.
