The Beavers posted an 18-12 overall record in 2012-13 to rank fifth all-time in wins in the 91-year history of the program. After losing its head coach, the nation's player of the year and an all-region point guard, the expectations of BSU from outsiders was dim. The league coaches pegged the Beavers to finish tied for 12th in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference. Bemidji State proved it was worthy to battle in one of the nation's toughest conferences and finished the 22-game league schedule with a 13-9 mark to finish as the No. 3 seed in the NSIC North. Head coach Mike Boschee set the BSU record for most wins by a first-year head coach, as the Beavers made a run to the NSIC/Sanford Health Men's Basketball Tournament Championship – their first-ever run to the championship game. Bemidji State fell to No. 7 Minnesota State University, Mankato, 73-68 in the contest to fall just short of an automatic bid to the NCAA Central Region Tournament.
