Baker women fall in opening round of HAAC Playoffs to Lindenwood 65-59

Brooke Sanders

ST. CHARLES, Mo. – The Wildcats played a near flawless first half, but Lindenwood came out hot after the break hitting 11-of-19 shots to go on an early 9-0 run that ultimately doomed Baker.

Brooke Sanders scored a career-high 17 points to go along with five assists and two blocks. Brittany Hines was the only other Wildcat to score in double figures with 10 points. Sanders finished the game 6-for-9 from the field and 4-for-7 from beyond the arc.

“We were right there the whole game, but we can’t have dry spells like we did,” said junior guard Brooke Sanders. “Basketball had been a big part of our lives forever, there will be a huge hole for all of us to fill in our lives.” Sanders will be moving on to the Baker School of Nursing in the fall of 2011.

Scoreless droughts have plagued the Wildcats all season and tonight wasn’t an exception. The Wildcats failed to score a field goal in the first seven minutes of the second half.

“If we could’ve played the first seven minutes like we did the final 10 minutes I think we would’ve had a different ballgame,” said head coach Susan Decker.

Baker (15-16 overall) shot 37 percent from the field in the contest and turned the ball over 15 times. Lindenwood (21-9 overall) will move on to face Avila University in the Heart of America Athletic Conference Semifinals on Friday afternoon.
