The Baker men’s basketball team will close out the action on Saturday afternoon when they also host Evangel for a 4 p.m., tipoff.

The Wildcats (9-14, 5-8 HAAC) are coming off a tough overtime defeat on Thursday evening at Central Methodist University, 85-80.

Jaris Wommack led all Baker scorers with 20 points while shooting 8-for-17 from the floor. Andre Stozier added 17 points and pulled down eight rebounds, while Jack Shotell and Austin Bond each chipped in with 13 and 10 points respectively.

“Down four with a minute to play in regulation, we did a good job of battling back and taking the lead against Central Methodist,” said head coach Brett Ballard. “Give CMU credit for making a tough shot with under three seconds remaining to send the game to overtime.”

Evangel (15-7, 10-2 HAAC) enters play as one of the hottest teams in the league after knocking off HAAC leader No. 10 Lindenwood University on Thursday evening, 76-74 in overtime.

“We will have to bounce back from a disappointing loss and regroup quickly,” Ballard added. “We will need to play a very complete game to beat a very good team.”
