Head coach Rick Weaver will travel to Morningside College this upcoming weekend as he will be inducted into the Mustangs athletic Hall of Fame. Weaver, a 1972 graduate, was a three-year starter for Morningside's men's basketball team.

View more information here.
A handful of returnees will combine with a bevy of newcomers as the Baker Wildcats prepare for the 2009-2010 season. Leading the veterans will be 6’0 point guard BROCK ENTNER (pictured) and 6’4 swingman MALCOLM GREER (pictured). Entner earned honorable mention all-league honors last season while Greer was a third team all-conference selection. 6’0 JOE WACHTER, 6’0 CONNOR BECHARD and 6’3 DREW BERG saw limited action last year and will be competing for playing time as well.
Several new players will be playing major roles for the ‘Cats. 6’5 RYAN DOUVIER (Hutchinson CC) and 6’7 JACK SHORTELL (KCKCC) are expected to be key inside players. 6’4 AUSTIN BOND (Hutchison CC), 6’1 JARIS WOMMACK (John Wood CC) and 6’0 RYCKEY HARPER (Southwestern-Iowa), will join incoming freshman 5’10 SAM KENNEY and 6’2 COREY ANDERSON on the perimeter.
“We should be a bit deeper at most positions than we were last season, especially on the perimeter. With so many new players, there will be a period of adjustment, but I think this group will be a fun team to watch.”
