Jordan Honore

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The Baker University men’s basketball team is off to its best start in five years after defeating Friends University 76-65 Tuesday evening.

Baker (3-0) never trailed in the contest as junior Jordan Honore led the way offensively with 23 points and five assists, while shooting 9-for-17 from the field.

Jack Shortell recorded a double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds and Corey Anderson added 10 points. The Wildcats finished the contest 30-for-62 (48 percent) from the field and 5-for-16 (31 percent) from beyond the arc.

Friends University (1-3) was led by Reggie Britton, as he netted 23 points while shooting 9-for-17 from the field.

“Overall we played a good game tonight,” said head coach Brett Ballard. “Being plus-20 in the rebounding margin was good for us, but I wish we would’ve been able to put the game away.”

Baker returns to action on their home floor Nov. 11 against the University of St. Mary at 7 p.m.
