WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. -- Junior guard Sharif Black led the Bemidji State men’s basketball team with 18 points Saturday, but the Beavers ultimately fell to Central Missouri 80-65.

The Beavers (0-2) gave up the first 11 points of the game, but Jai’Vionne Green finally put them on the board with a three-pointer four minutes into the game. Green would finish with 15 points.

A 12-2 run late in the half brought BSU within a point at 27-26, but the Mules (2-0) scored the next six points and went into the intermission with a 33-26 lead.

Bemidji State couldn’t respond in the second half, and Mules guard Spencer Reaves’ 12 second-half points was more than enough to secure the 80-65 win for Central Missouri.

Along with Black and Reaves, freshman Peyton Dibble also hit double-digits for points with 10.
