SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Sanford Pentagon) -- The Bemidji State University women’s basketball team’s run in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Tournament came to a close Saturday night during an 85-57 loss to St. Cloud State University at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, S.D. Early turnovers put the Beavers, who finish the season with a 6-22 record overall, in an early hole that was added to by efficient shooting by the Huskies.
A series of quick mistakes by the Beavers allowed the Huskies to take early control of the game as BSU missed its first field goal attempt and gave away three straight turnovers. SCSU jumped ahead to a 9-1 lead over BSU before senior forward Emma Rappe scored a layup from sophomore guard Brooklyn Bachmann for its first field goal of the game. In total, Bemidji State gave away eight turnovers in the first quarter that led to 10 St. Cloud State points.
The Beavers continued to lose control of the ball while giving away six turnovers in the second quarter before going into halftime facing a 41-24 deficit. Freshman forward Taylor Vold scored six of her team-high 12 points during the third quarter while helping BSU shoot 7-of-16 as a team from the field in the third period.
Bemidji State ultimately was not able to stop St. Cloud State’s offensive attack as the Huskies scored at least 20 points in every quarter. The Beavers scored a team-high 18 points in the fourth quarter, but was not able to overcome its 62-39 deficit heading into the final period.
Vold’s team-high scoring effort was a career-high while going 5-of-5 from the field while also leading the team with five rebounds, including four offensive. Bachmann followed with 11 points and added four assists, two rebounds, and one block.
Bemidji State finished the game shooting 45.2 percent (19-42) from the field, 13.3 percent (2-15) from beyond the arc, and 73.9 percent (17-23) from the free throw line. St. Cloud State went 58.1 percent (36-62) from the field, 30.4 percent (7-23) from long range and 66.7 (6-9) from the charity stripe. SCSU outscored BSU in the paint, 50-34, in points off turnovers, 22-10, and in second-chance points, 16-7.
