BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The Baker men’s basketball team continues to improve with each Heart of America Athletic Conference game it plays.

Central Methodist (6-5, 1-1 overall), the defending HAAC champion, is coming off a loss to Avila University last Saturday. Jake Clark leads the Eagles offensively with 14 points per game.
