The Jamestown Jimmies enter the NAIA Division II Women’s National Basketball Championship as the No. 2 seed in the Naismith bracket. They amassed a 29-4 regular season record, including a perfect 12-0 mark in the North Star Athletic Conference. The Jimmies are coached by Greg Ulland, who has won 128 games in his six seasons at the helm of the program.

The Jimmies earned an automatic bid after defeating Dickinson State in the NSAA conference championship game, 65-63 after senior forward, Jessica Buck, hit a buzzer-beating tip shot to win the game.

Buck, who leads the team in scoring at 18 points per game, shoots 51 percent from the field and pulls down 5.9 rebounds a contest, is the unquestioned leader of the Jimmies. Kyra Dewald is the only other Jimmie to average double figures (12.1 ppg) and she also averages 3.1 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game.

The Jimmies are the seventh best team in the nation in scoring margin (+16 ppg) and rank ninth in field goal percentage (44 percent). Jamestown’s only losses on the year have come at the hands of Great Plains Athletic Conference teams, as they fell to Doane College, Briar Cliff, Concordia and Morninfside; three of those teams were in last year’s national semifinals.
