Bachmann’s first-half scoring not enough as Beavers fall, 58-50

BEMIDJI, Minn. (BSU Gymnasium) -- Sophomore guard Brooklyn Bachmann came out hot Monday night with 17 first-half points in Bemidji State University women’s basketball’s 58-50 loss to University of Wisconsin-Superior. Bachmann led the Beavers in scoring during her first start of the season as the team closed out its non-conference schedule.

Bachmann provided the majority of BSU’s offensive power through the first half with 17 of the squad’s 27 points through two quarters. She put in six points while the Beavers trailed heading into the second quarter, 16-10. The Beavers’ scoring leader from last season added 11 points in the second quarter, ending the half shooting 7-of-12 from the court. BSU was set back at the halftime break after shooting 36.7 percent (11-30) from the field and being held without a 3-pointer.

Coming out of a 36-27 deficit from halftime, sophomore center Taylor Bray and sophomore guard Maria Appicelli combined for a 5-0 run to bring the game to within four points, 36-32. Bray scored BSU’s next four points to keep the team within four points while a 5-0 run by UWS pushed the lead back to nine heading into the fourth quarter, 49-40. Including a jumper to end the third quarter, the Yellowjackets went on a 6-0 run to take their largest lead of the night, 53-40.

Sophomore forward Gabby Dubois snapped the run with her first 3-pointer of the night. Freshman guard Trinity Myer took away a steal and pulled down a defensive rebound that led to two fast break baskets by Appicelli, bringing Bemidji State back to within seven points, 53-46, midway through the final quarter. Bemidji State held UW-Superior without a field goal over a six-minute span during its run but weren’t able to add to its total after the two-minute mark.

Bemidji State shot 32.2 percent (19-59) from the field, 11.8 percent (2-17) from beyond the arc and 90.9 percent (10-11) from the free throw line. The Yellowjackets’ bench contributed 17 points compared to just five for the Beavers.

Bemidji State begins its conference schedule Saturday, Dec. 1 as University of Minnesota Crookston enters BSU Gymnasium. The Beavers and Golden Eagles tip-off at 2 p.m. in the first of two season meetings.
