KANSAS CITY, MO. ( – The #11 University of Jamestown men’s basketball team saw its season conclude in the NAIA National Tournament on Tuesday night in Kansas City. #6 Indiana Tech defeated the Jimmies, 61-51, in the round of 16.

Both teams were slow on the offensive side during the opening half, but Jamestown held the lead for 15 of the first 20 minutes. The Warriors used a 10-0 run over four minutes to head into the break with a 29-24 advantage. 20 of the Jimmies’ 24 points in the first half came from Mason Walters and Cole Woodford.

Jamestown cut the Indiana Tech lead down to one around the 16 minute mark in the second half, trailing 31-30. However, the Jimmies were never able to regain the lead as the Warriors ballooned the lead to 12 before all was said and done. UJ was held to 29% shooting from the floor and 22% from long range in the loss.

Walters had a game-high 26 points to go along with eight rebounds. Woodford was the only other Jimmie in double figures, finishing with 13. Colby Vazquez added four points and seven rebounds, five of which came on the offensive glass. Reid Gastner had a career-high 16 rebounds.

The Jimmies end the year at 27-7 overall. Walters presumably ends his Jimmie career with 2,662 career points and 1,239 rebounds, both UJ records. He also set the single-season scoring record, posting 904 points during the 2022-23 campaign, which breaks his record from a year ago.

Marc Kjos’s Jimmie career is more than likely done as well. The Lake City native ends his career as the only UJ player ever to score more than 1,000 points and dish out more than 400 assists.
