BU Bounces Back with Win over CCCB

MOBERLY, Mo. – The Baker University women's basketball team bounced back after Friday's loss at William Jewell with an, 83-61, win at Central Christian of the Bible to improve to 9-4 overall.

Baker picked up its second win over CCCB this season, as they defeated the Saints, 92-39, back at home on Saturday, Nov. 24.

The Wildcats used a 42-26 halftime lead to push past the Saints early, but CCCB closed the gap a bit in the second and Baker only outscored its opponent, 41-35, in the second frame.

Alisha Fanshier scored a game high 22 points for the Wildcats and fellow teammate Kyrstie Ehm joined her in double-figures with 11.

Rece Huddlin and Jami Hodge both scored eight points apiece and Ericka Simpson, Macy Wallisch and Ciarra Washington all scored six.

Baker shot 50-percent from the floor on 28-of-56 and knocked in 10 three-point baskets, while giving up just one three-pointer to the Saints.

CCCB was nearly perfect at the line, shooting, 20-of-21, at a clip of 95.2-percent. Baker had 16 assists on its 28 field goals and four Wildcats led the way in assists with three apiece including Fanshier, Simpson, BriAnna Garza and Shea Shoemaker.

The Wildcats received 53 points from its bench, while CCCB managed just six from its reserves.

Baker will now take a break during the Holiday season and won't hit the hardwood again until Saturday, Dec. 29, as they take on McPherson College at 2 p.m. at the Collins Center.
