Three players scored in double figures to pace the Wildcats to victory

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – After a sluggish start to its conference season, the Baker women’s basketball team bounced back on Saturday afternoon to defeat Lindenwood University, 71-66 for its first Heart of America Athletic Conference (HAAC) victory.

Aubree Gustin, Emily Gibson and Brittany Hines all scored in double figures as the Wildcats closed the game out late. Gustin tallied 18 points on 3-for-4 shooting from beyond the arc, Gibson added 17 points while grabbing nine rebounds and Brittany Hines was steady again chipping in with 15 points.

Baker (5-5, 1-1 HAAC) outrebounded the Lions 38 to 29 and capitalized on the Lions mistakes scoring 19 points off turnovers.

Lindenwood (5-5, 1-1 HAAC) also had three players score in double digits, but Baker took back a 34-33 lead on a blocked shot by Emily Gibson that led to a fast break basket by Brittany Hines with 16:18 remaining in the second half and never looked back from that point forward.

The Wildcats return to action for a key conference showdown with No. 24 Evangel University at 5:30 p.m., in Springfield, Mo., on Monday evening.
