Junior forward James Ellisor made a three to tie the game at 19 with 11:07 left in the first half.

The Marauders outscored the Beavers (5-5 2-4 NSIC) 11-0 over the next seven minutes.

Bemidji State went jumped out to a 10-2 run to start the second half and cut the deficit to ten.

That is as close as the Beavers would get. The Marauders pulled away and never let the Beavers cut the lead to single digits.

Senior forward Pat Cassidy, junior forward James Ellisor, and junior guard Bryce Tesdahl each scored 11 points and grabbed four rebounds for the Beavers.

Sophomore forward Mason Walters added 10 points and four rebounds.
