VINCENNES, IND. - Sophomore transfer guard Jarvis Calhoun poured in a season-high 20 points, including four trifectas, and sophomore teammate Ranell Crossland matched that total of points to lead the John A. Logan College men's basketball team to a 105-95 win over Kankakee Friday at a tournament in Vincennes, Ind.

"Jarvis is getting more comfortable in our offense," said Vols head coach Kyle Smithpeters. "He's a good ballplayer."

Logan built a 15-8 lead early f ollowing a triple from Calhoun, but then fell behind briefly as the Cavaliers went on a 19-6 run. The Vols stormed  back almost immediately thereafter  behind the strong play of Crossland and center Tamas Bruce to take a 56-41 lead into the intermission.

Logan led by as many as 23 points midway through the second half at 69-46. Kankakee closed to within seven at 91-84, but would get no closer.

"We just haven't developed the killer instinct yet," Smithpeters said. "When we get up on a team like we did tonight, we have to put the game away. That's something we can work harder on."

Joining Calhoun and Crossland in double figures were Devontavius Payne (16), Michael Tucker (15), Bruce (14), and Rashaun Richardson (10). Justin Lukens and Armon Benford added four points apiece.

Tucker led the team in rebounds with 11.

The Vols converted 33-of-70 shots from the field; 8-of-21 from beyond the arc; and 31-of-47 from the free-throw line.

Logan improves to 6-0 on the season and will resume action in Vincennes at 4 p.m. today against Ancilla, Ind.
