BEMIDJI, Minn. (BSU Gymnasium) -- The University of Sioux Falls scored 12 unanswered points in overtime to earn an 82-70 victory over the Bemidji State women's basketball team Saturday at he BSU Gymnasium.

Junior guard Morgan Lee (Hayward, Wis.) posted 19 points.

The Beavers shot 68.2 percent in the field while Sioux Falls posted 63.6 percent

The first basket of the game was a 3-pointer from Sioux Falls that was quickly followed by a jumper from senior Emily Kaus (C, Eagan, Minn.). With 16:07 left in the first half a foul on Sioux Falls would give Lee the two free throw points the Beavers needed to tie up the game 6-6, this would be the first of 11 ties during the game. The second tie came 30 seconds later after a 3-point bucket from Lee, 9-9. With 8:58 left in the half a free throw from Jessie Althoff (Jr., F, Becker, Minn.) evened the game for the final time during the half, 22-22.

For almost three scoreless minutes the Beavers held a one point lead until a basket by the Cougars put them behind. The basket was answered almost immediately by a 3-pointer from Lee. With 2:26 left on the clock two free throws from Kate Warmack (Jr., C, East Grand Forks, Minn.) solidified the Beaver lead 34-29. A 3-pointer from USF ended the period 38-32.

The teams went 0-for-6 to open the second half.  The Cougars officially started the second-half scoring with 18:57 on the clock. The Beavers held their lead throughout most of the second half but USF never let them stretch it further than nine points. With 7:27 left in the game the Cougars capped an 8-0 run with a hoop by Mikenna Greathouse to grab a 59-58 lead. Both teams fought hard to take the lead tying the game five more times in the last six minutes. A missed jumper by USF kept the game tied 70-70 as the clock ran out and the teams went into a five minute over time.

Bemidji State seemed to lose steam in overtime when the Cougars took 12 unanswered points to gain the 82-70 victory.
