BEMIDJI, Minn. (BSU Gymnasium) -- Bemidji State University freshman forward Sergej Baskow (Ludwigsburg, Germany) netted 12 points and grabbed a career-high 13 rebounds en route to his first career double-double Friday at the BSU Gymnasium.

Down just 34-27 after the first half, the Beavers saw Concordia University-St. Paul go on a 13-2 run midway through the second half to extend the game out of BSU's reach, 72-55.

Kyle Marxhausen scored 16 points to pace the Golden Bears. Joey Peel added 11 points and a game-high seven assists while Chuol Chany led the team on the boards with 11.

Baskow led a trio of Beavers on double-figures. Alex Smith (Jr., F, Miami, Fla.) netted 15 and added six assists and Arron Evans (Jr., G, Minneapolis, Minn.) rounded out the group with 12 points hitting on 2-of-5 from beyond the three-point arc.

Concordia-St. paul scored the first seven points of the game and opened a 12-2 lead over the Beavers five minutes into the contest.

With 8:45 left in the half, a free-throw by Joey peel gave CSP a 24-8 advantage, but the Beavers would out score CSP 19-10 in the remainder of the period to trim their deficit to seven points, 34-27, as the halftime horn sounded.

As the second half got under way, the Beavers took advantage of scrappy play to claw their way back to within four points (44-40) at the 11:56 mark. But the door would quickly be closed on the BSU comeback as CSP rattled off 12 of the next 14 points to push their lead to 56-42 with just under nine minutes on the clock.

The Golden Bears stretched their lead to as many as 20 points before taking the taking the 72-55 victory.

Although the Beavers still hold a lead in the all-time series with CSP, the Golden Bears use the win to creep to 11-4 all time and have now won two of the last three meetings.

Bemidji State (0-10; 0-3 NSIC) will be back in action tomorrow when Minnesota State University Moorhead (5-2; 1-1 NSIC) comes to town. The game will follow the BSU women's game versus the Dragons with an approximate time start set for 8 p.m.
