"I guess when you start off a game and get down by that much, it is hard to come back, and that happened both games this weekend," said Baldwin of the start. "I thought we fought back, but after being down by that much, it is hard to come back."

The Beavers (2-3, 0-2 NSIC) had eight turnovers in the first nine minutes, equivalent to their number of field goal attempts.

Bemidji State came out with more intensity in the second half as it tried to cut into the 35-point deficit. The Beavers shot 43 percent from the field and outscored the Golden Eagles 39-32 after halftime.

"It is a positive," said Baldwin of the second half. "We just need to start every game like that."

The Golden Eagles made 7 of 14 shots from beyond the 3-point arc, compared to the Beavers' two hits in 12 attempts.

Baldwin led the Beavers, with 12 points, seven rebounds and three assists. Freshman guard Melissa Borstner added 11 points and four rebounds. It was the fourth time this season Borstner scored in double figures.

Bemidji State will return to the floor on Tuesday at 7 p.m., when St. Scholastica comes to town for a nonconference game.
