BISMARCK, N.D. -- The Minot State women's basketball team got a 16-point performance from the bench, but fell 61-44 to the Mary Marauders on the road Tuesday in NSIC action   

Vilborg Jonsdottir led the Beavers (5-4 overall, 1-2 NSIC) with four points, five assists, and three steals. Kate Head tacked on 12 points and Natasha Elliott chipped in as well with eight points and six rebounds. 

Led by Jonsdottir's three offensive rebounds, Minot State did a great job crashing the offensive glass, pulling down 12 boards that resulted in four second-chance points. 

Minot State's defense held Mary to only 33.9 percent shooting from the field, including 22.2 percent from beyond the arc.
