Baker vs MNU

OLATHE, Kan. – After winning three-straight games, the Baker women’s basketball team fell to rival MidAmerica Nazarene, 79-56 on Thursday evening.

Alisha Fanshier was the only Wildcat to score in double figures with 11 points on a 4-for-16 shooting performance from the floor. Freshman Avery Voghts added nine points and Shelbi Petty chipped in with seven in a game that saw the Wildcats get outscored 40-23 via the bench.

Baker (4-13, 2-4 HAAC) held a 25-16 lead with six minutes to play in the first half, but from that point forward the Wildcats were outscored 20-2 heading into the break.

First place MidAmerica Nazarene (12-5, 5-1 HAAC) finished the contest 34-for-66 (51 percent) from the floor and 7-for-13 (54 percent) from beyond the arc. The Pioneers also outrebounded Baker 43-31. Daria Sprew led the Pioneers with a game-high 16 points.

“We outplayed ourselves in that final six minutes of the first half,” said head coach Ben Lister. “Defensively we’ve got to get better. We’re 2-4 in the HAAC, but if we can regroup Saturday and grab a road victory at Graceland, it would put us right back in the thick of things.”
