BALDWIN CITY, Kan. - After dropping its first game of the season on Wednesday evening at Friends University, the Baker men will look to bounce back against local rival Ottawa University.

Baker (2-1) under new head coach Brett Ballard is still looking to find consistency on the offensive side of the ball. Two players currently average in double figure points, Austin Bond (12.3) and Jaris Wommack (11.7).

“I was disappointed with the effort on Wednesday,” said head coach Brett Ballard. “We need to learn from that loss and bounce back quickly this weekend. Our players and coaches understand just how important this rivalry game is to the University.”

Ottawa (0-2) enters play coming off back-to-back losses to Heart of America Athletic Conference (HAAC) foes William Jewell College and MidAmerica Nazarene University. The Braves leading scorer, Chase Dippel is currently averaging 10 points per game.

“Coach (Andy Carrier) does a great job with that program they’re a real solid team,” Ballard added. “I think with Sem Kenney still sitting out for us due to an ankle sprain we’ll need to see some other guys pick up the slack.”

Tipoff is set for 7 p.m., in the George F. Collins Center on Saturday night.
