Senior Maxie Rosenbloom recorded his second double-double in as many games with 13 points and a career-high 14 rebounds. Senior guard Jake Schalow contributed a season-high 18 points on 5-of-7 shooting from the field, a 2-for-4 performance from 3-point range and a perfect 6-for-6 at the free throw line. Junior Brock Lutes added 17 points, six rebounds, three assists and two steals.

The Beavers moved past the 100-point mark for the 60th time in program history. The last time BSU hit the century mark was last season at Finlandia University (Nov. 21, 2012) when it totaled a program-record 122 points.

The Saints knocked down a pair of three-pointers to help build in an early 10-6 lead in the opening minutes. The Beavers responded with a 16-0 run during 5:11 of play to open a 12-point lead at 22-10 with 12:56 left in the opening half.

Noreen scored 16 of his points in the first half and BSU held a commanding 49-27 lead at halftime.

The second half quickly proved to be all Bemidji State, as the Beavers opened the first five minutes of play with a 19-5 run to build a 68-33 lead. All five starters, Noreen, Rosenbloom, Schalow, Lutes and junior DJ Hervy scored during the run.

Bemidji State (3-0) will wrap-up its non-conference slate with a home contest against Michigan Tech at 8 p.m. Tuesday.
