Shelbi Petty

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – Baker freshman Shelbi Petty continued her dominant play on Saturday afternoon notching a career-high 25 points en route to a 66-60 victory over Missouri Valley College.

Petty, a freshman from DeSoto, Kan., has averaged 17.5 points over her last four games while notching back-to-back career-high performances after scoring 19 points against Avila University on Jan. 26.

After trailing by as many as 12 points with 14 minutes to play in regulation, Baker went on a 20-7 run over the next eight minutes to grab a 56-55 lead with five minutes to play in the game. Baker again went on its second largest run of the game from that point forward to outscore the Vikings 10-5.

Baker (5-17, 3-8 HAAC) finished the game just 23-for-64 (36 percent) from the field and 7-for-22 (32 percent) from beyond the arc.

Missouri Valley College (8-12, 4-6 HAAC) was led by Hannah Young who finished with 16 points in the contest. The Vikings committed  23 turnovers in a contest that saw Baker finish with 15 steals.
