DULUTH, Minn. (Romano Gymnasium) -- The Bemidji State University women’s basketball regular season ended Saturday afternoon with a 68-47 loss at University of Minnesota Duluth. The Beavers end the regular season with a 5-21 record overall and a 3-19 mark in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference to enter the conference tournament with the No. 8 seed in the north division.
The Beavers began the game shooting well from the field, going 4-for-5 from the floor en route to taking an 11-8 lead less than three minutes into play. BSU then hit a dry spell while missing its next four shots and giving the ball away four times. Freshman forward Taylor Vold hit her second 3-pointer of the opening quarter to bring Bemidji State to within three points of UMD, 17-14, but the Huskies were able to close the quarter with a 22-16 lead.
The Bulldogs opened the second quarter on a 9-0 run to pull ahead by 15 points, 31-16. BSU was not able to close the gap as UMD went into halftime with a 45-23 advantage. Minnesota Duluth held on to a lead of at least 20 points the rest of the game while holding Bemidji State to 32.0 percent (16-50) shooting from the field and 22.7 percent (5-22) from beyond the arc through the game.
Sophomore guard Brooklyn Bachmann led the team in scoring for the second time this weekend with 11 points while freshman guard Trinity Myer followed with 10, recording her seventh straight game with at least 10 points. Senior forward Emma Rappe paced the group on the boards with six rebounds while Myer led with four assists.
