Bachmann led BSU in scoring for the ninth time this season with 10 points, the only Beavers to reach double figures. Sophomore guard Erica Gartner followed Bachmann with eight points while senior forward Sam Adamich totaled six points on two three-pointers and led the team with nine rebounds.
Bemidji State shot 29.0 percent from the field, 20.0 percent from beyond the arc and went 7-for-11 from the free throw line.
