BALDWIN CITY, KS -- Central Methodist dropped a 65-55 decision Saturday to Baker in Collins Gymnasium in Heart of America Athletic Conference men's basketball play.

Both teams struggled to score in the first half. The Eagles (12-9, 5-4 HAAC), after scoring 48 points in the first half of Thursday's win against Culver-Stockton, manager just 17 through 20 minutes on Saturday. The Wildcats (11-8, 4-5 HAAC) were not much better, tallying just 24 points at the break.

Baker went on an 8-2 run to begin the second half with three-point buckets from Jordan Honore and Corey Anderson and a two-point basket from Ben Steinlage.

Central Methodist managed to cut the deficit to just four points, 32-28, with 11:45 to go with a basket from Derek Kitch. However, the Wildcats managed to string together another 8-0 run to seemingly put the game out of reach.

Eric Franklin did his best to keep the visitors in the contest, scoring 11 of his career-high 24 points in the final 55 seconds of the game, but the deficit never shrunk under nine points down the stretch as Baker was able to counter with made free throws.

Three Baker players scored in double figures, as Steinlage led the charge with 14, Honore scored 13 and Todd Eils added 10.

Franklin led all scorers with 24. Elliott Black added 19 points and six rebounds, doing much of his damage in the opening six minutes of the first half.

The Eagles also scored 18 points off 21 Baker turnovers.

Central Methodist returns to its home court for a matchup with No. 11 Evangel on Thursday, Jan. 24. Tip-off from Puckett Fieldhouse is set for 7:30 p.m. CT.
