FAYETTE, Mo. – The Baker University women's basketball team fell on the road on Saturday afternoon, 75-63, at Central Methodist University to fall to 19-10 overall and 12-5 in the Heart of America Athletic Conference.

Despite the loss, Baker is still one game ahead of CMU for third-place in the HAAC. The Eagles improved to 22-6 and 11-6 in the HAAC with Saturday's victory.

Baker jumped out to a 4-0 lead with buckets from BriAnna Garza and Rashida Simpson, but the Eagles tied things up at 4-4.

The Wildcats then went on an 8-0 run and extended its lead to 12-4. The Eagles then picked up their game after that point and went on a 12-0 run to take a 16-12 lead.

Baker tried to cut into the lead for the remainder of the half but with baskets from Audrey Patton and Raylyn Nuss, the Eagles handled any pressure the Wildcats gave them and went into the half up 16 points, 40-24.

Baker hung tough and cut the lead to just five, 44-39, with a free throw by Rece Huddlin. Shea Shoemaker then nailed two free throws with 7:24 to go in the game to cut the lead to four, 50-46. But that is the closes the Wildcats would get and CMU took home the 12-point victory, 75-63.

Huddlin had a game-high 20 rebounds and grabbed 11 rebounds and Garza joined her in double figures with 12.

Four Eagles scored in double figures, as Taylor Cornelison had 14, Britney Joseph had 12, Nakia Robinson finished with 11 and Towanda Sutton scored 10.

The Wildcats will end the HAAC regular season this Monday, Feb. 25 at 5:30 p.m. on senior night as they host Benedictine College. The Wildcats will honor seniors Alisha Fanshier and Huddlin after the conclusion of their game.
