CBALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The Baker University women's basketball team opened up the 2013-14 season with a perfect record of 3-0 after defeating McPherson, 64-55, on the road on Tuesday night.

The Wildcat defense held the Bulldogs to just 34.5-percent shooting from the field and an impressive 3-of-17 from three-point range for 17.6-percent.

Baker struggled itself from the field shooting 23-of-71 but outscored McPherson, 37-24, in the first half and held on for the win with a team high 10 points from Jami Hodge, she served as the only player for the Wildcats to score in double figures.

McPherson relied on two players, as Aubrey Barton and Bailey Brown were the only two Bulldogs to score in double figures. Barton had a game high 21 points and Brown had 15.

Sydney Buchel had another solid game for Baker, as the freshman had a team high nine rebounds and poured in nine points and defending HAAC Player of the Week BriAnna Garza had six assists along with four points, two steals and two blocks.

The Wildcats knocked down six three-point baskets and Avery Vogts led that charge, shooting 2-of-4.
