The Beavers fall to 4-12 (1-7 NSIC) with the loss and the Wildcats improved to 11-5 (4-3 NSIC).
"For the most part we played them pretty hard," said BSU head coach Wayne Chadwick. "(Wayne State) is number ten in the country and is not number ten by accident. The next step in the development of this team has to be a sense of urgency and an understanding moment to score points when we need to."
