Wolhowe led the Beavers with a career-high 18 points followed by junior guard Brooklyn Bachmann with 15 points as the only two Beavers with double-digit scoring.
Wolhowe gave BSU its first points of the night with the first of her five 3-pointers during the game following a 4-0 lead by VCSU. Bachmann followed with her first 3-pointer of the night to start an 11-0 run between the two Beavers alone.

The BSU defense limited VCSU to 14.8 percent shooting in the first half to go into halftime with a 22-12 lead.
Bemidji State improved on its shooting in the second half as Wolhowe converted 3-of-4 3-pointers in the final 20 minutes. After Valley City State pulled to within nine points at the beginning of the fourth quarter, Bemidji State went on an 18-4 run to extend its lead to 23 points, 58-35. In addition to shooting 48.3 percent from the floor, the Beavers scored 16 points in the paint and 14 points off nine Vikings turnovers in the second half.
