But in the second half, CSC made just six of 32 shots of its field goal tries for 18.8 percent and was outscored 34-13. That made the final score 58-42 in favor of the Minnesota team.

The Eagles hit 32.6 percent of their field goal shots, including three of 12 from long range, and were 12 of 17 from the foul line. CSC was hampered by turnovers; 25 of them compared to the Cougars’ nine.

Trinity Myer, a 5-9 sophomore, paced Bemidji State with 22 points, while sinking 10 of her 20 shots from the field, and she also grabbed a game-high 12 rebounds. The Beavers’ enjoyed a 51-33 rebounding bulge.
