Beaver women top Peacocks 79-65 for first NSIC win


The Bemidji State women's basketball team earned its first conference win of the season Saturday with a 79-65 win over Upper Iowa at the BSU Gymnasium.

"It is huge," said Beavers coach Mike Curfman. "I thought we played a much more complete game tonight. We get that monkey off of our back and hopefully we can build from this."

The Beavers (4-4 1-3 NSIC) capitalized on 13 first-half Peacock turnovers to gain a 38-30 lead.
