Balanced scoring leads Baker past Central MethodistJoe Wachter

FAYETTE, Mo. – Five players scored in double figures and the Wildcats shot a lights out 62 percent from the field on Saturday to defeat Central Methodist University, 89-78 for their second consecutive victory.

Jack Shortell finished with a game-high 19 points while shooting 9-for-11 from the floor. Jordan Honore added 17 points going a perfect 6-for-6 from the floor. Ben Steinlage, Corey Anderson, and Joe Wachter each added 15, 14, and 11 points respectively.

“Coach Sherman and I joked about not shooting the ball well at the beginning of the game,” said head coach Brett Ballard. “Sure enough, once you start talking about it, we made some shots. I thought our guys shot it with confidence and we’ve been getting some good looks in conference and just not knocking them down. I don’t think it’s anything different. We made some, they made a lot early and we were able to sustain their run and then kind of held them off there late.”

Central Methodist will be a good test for us on the road.”
