The Beavers led by as many as 19 points in the first half but allowed the Marauders to go on a 20-3 run in the fourth quarter to fall to 7-11 overall and 4-10 in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference.
Midway into the opening quarter, sophomore forward Claire Wolhowe sparked a 14-0 run that ultimately led to a 29-13 lead after the first quarter. BSU shot over 68 percent over the first five minutes and scored seven points off five UMary turnovers. After a basket by the Marauders to open the second quarter, junior guard Brooklyn Bachmann scored five straight points to give the Beavers a game-high, 19-point lead that lasted until midway through the quarter.
Bemidji State held on to its double-digit lead until halfway through the third quarter when UMary went on a 9-2 run for a six-point, 54-48 margin.
