PITTSBURG, Kan. – The Baker University men’s basketball team hit the road on Tuesday night for a tough test against NCAA Division II Pittsburg State University in an exhibition game in which the Wildcats fell to the Gorillas, 88-67. 

The game did not count against the Wildcats overall record, as they still stand at 3-1 on the year, but the contest was the season opener for Pitt State, as they open up 2012-13, 1-0.

Rico Pierrevilus scored 18 of his game-high 20 points in the first half while A.J. Adams and Kaleb Porter combined for 25 second-half points to lead Pitt State at John Lance Arena.

The Gorillas led by as many as 19 points at 56-37 with 11:59 to play in the game but the Wildcats used a 17-5 run over the next 4:36 to trim the margin to seven at 61-54 on Corey Anderson's three-point play.

Adams and Porter combined to score the game's next seven points and Marky Nolen completed a 9-0 Pitt State run to push the Gorillas back in front 70-54 with 5:24 remaining in the contest.

Anderson and E.J. Carter led Baker with 12 points apiece and Brandon Moore added 10 with two three-point makes.

Ben Steinlage led Baker with five assists and point guard Julian Mills had four. Baker struggled from the floor, shooting 22-of-60, but was stellar from the free-throw line, going 19-of-22.

Jordan Honore was perfect from the line shooting, 6-of-6, and Todd Eils knocked down four free-throws.
