PERU, Neb. – The Baker University men's basketball team shot an efficient 51.2-percent from the field and 84.2-percent from the free-throw line, but dropped another close contest on the road, as they fell 68-67 on Thursday night to Peru State.

The loss was the fifth-straight for the Wildcats and fourth-straight by six points or less. The Wildcats are now 8-11 on the year and 2-6 in the HAAC, while Peru St. improved to 8-10 and 3-5 in the conference.

Four Bobcats scored in double figures but only a total of seven players scored a point for Peru St., while EJ Carter (14), Todd Johnston (13) and Eric Watson (10) scored in double figures for BU.

Carter was very efficient from the floor, shooting 4-of-5 and 6-of-8 from the free-throw line, while Todd Johnston connected on three, three-point field goals.

Baker had just three assists on the night, while Peru State only had five and Baker committed just 10 turnovers, while Peru State had 12.

The Wildcats will return home this Saturday, Jan. 25 to take on Missouri Valley at 4 p.m. inside the Collins Center.
