Baker held Graceland to just 16.1-percent shooting from the field in the first half and just 22-percent overall.

Offensively, the Wildcats knocked down seven three-point baskets and shot 45.3-percent from the field overall.

Ciarra Washington and Rashida Simpson each had 11 points to lead all scorers and no Yellowjackets scored in double figures.

Washington hit three, three-pointers and the Wildcats were 13-of-16 for a clip of 81.3-percent.

Despite turning over the ball 27 times, the Wildcats put up 75 points or more for the tenth time this season.

Baker did dominate the boards as well, outrebounding Graceland, 60-28, with Rece Huddlin grabbing 12 and Simpson bringing down eight.

The Wildcats will hit the road again next Thursday, Jan. 17 at 5:30 p.m. in Atchison, Kan., to take on Benedictine College.
