BASKETBALL: After injury-plagued 2011, Bemidji State women are healthy, deep and ready to compete

BEMIDJI – Inconsistency and injuries plagued the Bemidji State women’s basketball team last season.

After forward Jessie Althoff and guard Erica Trabing went down with early-season injuries, the Beavers had trouble finding depth on the roster and struggled in a 9-18 season.

It’s one of the reasons NSIC coaches pegged BSU to finish 13th in the preseason poll; the Beavers were also picked to finished seventh out of eight teams in the NSIC Northern Division.
