23rd February 2017

The 2016-17 Bemidji State University women's basketball season came to an end Wednesday night as Wayne State College handed it an 85-61 loss to begin the 2017 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference/Sanford Health Tournament at Rice Auditorium in Wayne, Neb. BSU (7-20, 4-18 NSIC) was not able to find an answer to WSC’s (22-6, 16-6 NSIC) offensive attack in the post.

Junior center Sierra Senske led BSU with 14 points, including eight in the second half, while Tatum Sheley followed with 11 and Sidney Arrington recorded 10. Senske also led the Beavers with seven rebounds while senior guard Aimee Pelzer led with six assists.

Bemidji State finishes the season with a 7-20 overall record but improved its NSIC win total from the previous two seasons with four.


Entering Wednesday night’s Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference/Sanford Health Tournament First Round, the Bemidji State University men’s basketball team needed to play an error-free game while traveling to face Augustana University at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, S.D. BSU (10-18, 8-14 NSIC) was able to sink shots but gave away turnovers that allowed AU (22-7, 16-6 NSIC) to escape the opening round with a 75-64 win over the Beavers.

Senior Ben Best finished with a team-high 18 points followed by Sharif Black. Logan Bader was one point and one rebound shy of a double-double, while his nine rebounds led the team.

BSU finishes the season 10-18 overall and 8-14 in the NSIC.


The Golden Gophers aren’t a 100 percent lock to make the NCAA Tournament, but they’re close after winning at No. 24 Maryland, 89-75 Wednesday night.

Minnesota trailed 35-34 at the half before blowing the doors off the Terrapins down the stretch, outscoring them 55-40 in the second half.

The Gophers improved to 21-7 overall and 9-6 in the Big Ten. They could lose all three remaining Big Ten regular season games and still likely make the tournament.

Dupree McBrayer led the Gophers with 18 points off the bench. Nate Mason (17), Akeem Springs (16), Jordan Murphy (15) and Amir Coffey (13) joined McBrayer in double figures.
