Game 2 of the brand new season was a little more challenging for the Pioneers as they held a 25-20 advantage at the half and sealed the win down the stretch with transition buckets and converted free throws.

With 1:50 remaining in the contest, Bismarck State cut the lead to six on a three point basket by Emily Kautzman. Petra Lumpert (Jesenice, Slovenia) answered the bell with a field goal and free throw. Tini followed that up with two free throws with 13 ticks remaining on the clock.

Once again, Tini & Blaquiere recorded double-doubles for the second consecutive night. Tini scored 12 points and pulled down 10 rebounds, while Blaquiere had 11 points and 10 boards.

Malmquist chipped in 9 points and grabbed a game high 14 rebounds in the victory. Freshman Shelby Weeks (Culbertson, MT) added 8 points and 7 rebounds, while Lumpert counted for 13 points.
