PERU, Neb. – The Baker University women's basketball team kept its winning streak alive on Thursday night by winning its sixth straight game in a 62-55 road win against Peru State.

The Wildcats haven't lost since a Jan. 17 loss at Benedictine, 61-59, and are now 17-8 overall and 10-3 in the HAAC. Baker is two games up on fourth-place Central Methodist.

Baker struggled from the floor on Thursday shooting just 33.3-percent from the field, but like it has during this stretch of victories, the Wildcats free throw shooting was stellar.

The 'Cats shot 18-of-21 from the charity stripe and in the final two minutes of the contest, Baker went 5-of-6 with Rece Huddlin going 4-of-4 and BriAnna Garza making 1-of-2.

Three Wildcats scored in double figures, as Huddlin and Alisha Fanshier each had a game high 15 and Garza added 11.

Fanshier hit a team high three three-point field goals and as a team Baker had six behind the arc.

Baker turned the ball over 21 times, but caused 19 Peru State turnovers and held the Bobcats to just 33-percent from the field. Peru State's Adaugo Osuala had a big game with her 11 steals and 14 points.

The Wildcats will next take on Culver-Stockton this Saturday, Feb. 9 at 2 p.m. at the Collins Center and will look to win its seventh straight.

STATS: Baker 62 – Peru State 55
