McDonald's 3-pointer lifts No. 17 Vikings over No.7 Jamestown

February 2, 2012

JAMESTOWN — With six seconds left in overtime and the score tied at 83-83, the Valley City State University mens basketball team had an inbounds play set under their own basket at the Jamestown Civic Center Wednesday.
But when the Vikings noticed that Jamestown College forward Travis Burley was playing in the backcourt, rather than up front trying for a steal, VCSU guard A.J. McDonald took advantage of the situation.
"I went up and I got the ball, and I just cleared the floor," McDonald said. "I told (my teammates) I was feeling it, so just give it to me and they trusted me."

The first time the teams met, last month in the championship of the Dakota Athletic Conference Tip-Off tournament, Valley City lost 61-60 in overtime.
In the rematch, it was nearly the same results as the Vikings lost by only two points, 49-47, to the No. 11 Jimmies at the Jamestown Civic Center.

The Raiders had little problem beating Sargent Central 77-43.
Smith looked at as a “good win to go out on”, but hardly saw it as the end.
“It’s going to be emotional but we’ve got a long road hopefully,” Smith said.
