The Beavers, led in scoring by sophomore guard Brooklyn Bachmann with 16 points, fall to a 5-20 record overall and a 3-18 mark in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference.
Myer produced the game’s first points with a 3-pointer from sophomore guard Sydney Zerr just over one minute into action. BSU missed its next five field goal attempts and gave away two turnovers to give away its only lead of the night. SCSU had gone up 14-3 before Bachmann put in the first three of her team-high 16 points to end a 14-0 run.
Following a jumper in the paint by Bachmann, three different Beavers scored to bring the team within five points of the Huskies, 20-15. BSU held SCSU to 0-for-6 during a 2:51 stretch to cut the gap. St. Cloud State flipped the script through the remainder of the first half while holding Bemidji State to 0-for-10 shooting from the field to build a 34-18 halftime lead.
The Beavers were outscored in the second half, 35-29, despite improving their field goal percentage and sinking 14-of-17 free throws in the final period. Bachmann scored eight points in each half while adding seven rebounds, tying senior forward Emma Rappe for the team lead. Myer finished with 10 points, recording her sixth straight game scoring in double figures.
