Close third quarter slips away in Bemidji State loss to Concordia-St. Paul

BEMIDJI, Minn. (BSU Gymnasium) -- Freshman guard Trinity Myer helped give the Bemidji State University women’s basketball program its only lead of the game Friday night with two of her team-high 17 points during an 83-52 loss to Concordia University-St. Paul. Myer scored 10 points in the third quarter while sophomore center Taylor Bray followed with 11 with seven rebounds.

Bemidji State took its first lead of the game off an 8-0 run from the first quarter into the second as the Beavers were in a groove shooting 3-for-5 from the field during the stretch. Myer scored her first basket of the night to give BSU a 17-16 lead early in the second quarter.

Myer followed up to give the team a spark early in the third quarter after trailing by nine at halftime, 38-29. She scored 10 of her team-high points in the third quarter, including five of a 7-0 run by the Beavers to come back to within two of the Golden Bears. An and-one conversion by Myer brought the deficit to 38-36, while she finished with 10 of BSU’s 16 points in the quarter.

Concordia-St. Paul followed with a 17-4 run and held Bemidji State without a field goal for a stretch of over six minutes. The Beavers were only able to put in two field goals in the fourth quarter as the Golden Bears pulled away for the win.

Bemidji State shot 37 percent from the field compared to 54 percent for Concordia-St. Paul while the Golden Bears also won the rebound battle, 37-25. CSP scored 38 points in the paint compared to 22 for BSU while taking advantage of 14 Beavers turnovers for 15 points.
