Bemidji jumped to a 55-32 lead in the opening half and never looked back although outscoring the Pirates only 37-36 down the stretch.

Coach Rick Kehoe used the game to experiment with a number of lineups to discover the best use of his personnel.

He needed no time to rediscover Kayla Hirt who opened the new year as she closed the old one on a high note.

The 6-3 pivot hit 36 points, mostly on 10-15 foot jumpers. Kelsey Heisler and Erika Weimann each added 11 and freshman Jess Yost eight as nine players scored.

Terra Bjerk hit 16, Lauren Graham 12 and Corey Schmitz 10 for the losers.

Bemidji travels to Thief River Falls tomorrow and plays Burnsville Saturday night at the Hopkins cage classic.

The B and C Teams suffered a different fate.

The B Team lost 55-38 playing even in the second half after falling behind 33-16 at the break.

Kellie Morehouse led the visitors with 14.

The freshmen lost 42-37 in a tight contest. Jessa Lusby hit 13 for Bemidji.
