Beaver Women’s Basketball falters in second half of 72-51 loss at Mustangs

MARSHALL, Minn. (R/A Facility) -- The Bemidji State University women’s basketball program was outscored by nearly double in the second half of Saturday afternoon’s 72-51 loss at Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall, Minn. Sophomore center Taylor Bray neared a double-double while leading the Beavers with 12 points and nine rebounds.

The two teams stayed within one possession of each other through the first quarter, including BSU’s final lead of the game, 12-11, midway through the opening period. The Mustangs extended a three-point lead into seven points before the Beavers went on a 7-0 run, led by freshman guard Trinity Myer with two free throws and a 3-pointer, to head into halftime facing a three-point, 30-27 deficit.

The Mustangs held the Beavers to 4-of-18 shooting in the third quarter, while SMSU went 9-of-12 from the field and 4-of-4 from beyond the arc to take a 54-39 lead into the fourth quarter. Bemidji State was again outshot and outrebounded in the fourth quarter of the loss.

Bray went 5-of-13 from the field with nine rebounds, including five offensive boards. Following Bray in scoring was Myer with 10 points and sophomore guard Maria Appicelli and freshman forward Taylor Vold with eight points each.

Bemidji State shot 31.1 percent from the field, 25.0 percent from long range and 90.0 percent from the free throw line and was outrebounded, 42-34.

Bemidji State returns home after a four-game road trip Feb. 8-9 as it hosts Concordia University-St. Paul and Minnesota State University, Mankato.
