BALDWIN CITY, KS -- No. 22 Central Methodist suffered an 82-79 upset loss Saturday afternoon to Baker in Collins Gymnasium in Heart of America Athletic Conference women's basketball action.

Central Methodist's Nakia Robinson opened the game scoring with a trey, giving the Eagles (17-3, 6-3 HAAC) an early lead. Baker's Alisha Fanshier tied the game at 7 three minutes later with the first of her two first-half buckets from beyond the arc. A closely fought battle ensued for the duration of the half which included four ties and two lead changes. The Wildcats (12-8, 5-3 HAAC) claimed their largest first-half advantage of five points, 20-15, midway through the period after two free throws by Rece Huddlin.

Central Methodist closed the deficit to two points, 28-26, down the stretch following a Robinson free throw. Jasmine Poteete stole the inbounds pass but was unable to convert a layup, and Baker claimed a two-point edge at halftime. Fanshier had 14 points in the first 20 minutes to lead all scorers.

Robinson opend the second half the same as the first, giving the Eagles a one-point upper hand following her third bucket from distance Saturday. As the back-and-forth affair continued in the second half, the Green and Black grabbed a 39-35 lead following Sammie Gathercole's second bucket from three. Gathercole buried her third trey to give the Eagles a 44-38 advantage with 11:08 to play.

The Wildcats retook a 48-46 lead three minutes later after a three by Shea Shoemaker. The Eagles' Britney Joseph tied the game at 59 with a five-foot turnaround jumper in the paint with 2:22 to play. After a missed jumper by Baker's BriAnna Garza on the next trip down the court, Poteete turned a fastbreak layup into a two-point Central Methodist lead with 1:50 on the clock.
The Wildcats again went scoreless on their next possession, this time coming off a Fanshier turnover when she lost control of the ball on the sideline.

After getting a stop on the defensive end, Huddlin was called for a traveling violation, and Central Methodist maintained its 61-59 advantage. However, the Eagles were called for a turnover, giving the Wildcats one final chance to tie the game. Joseph was called for an off-the ball foul, and Huddlin tied the game with two bonus free throws with 13.7 seconds remaining. Central Methodist's Raylyn Nuss tried a fade away three as time expired, but her shot hit off the back of the rim, and the game went into overtime with both teams knotted at 61.

Garza and the Eagles' Towanda Sutton traded buckets in the first minute of the extra session before Kyra Williams found Gathercole in transition for a trey to give Central Methodist a 66-65 lead. Williams then made a steal on the next trip down the court, leading to a fastbreak layup to increase the margin to three points with 1:49 on the clock.

Huddlin tied the game at 70 with a running layup with 14 seconds remaining. Sutton's game-winning eight-foot baseline jumper bounced off the side of the rim, and the contest went into a second overtime.

Central Methodist's Audrey Patton scored her first two points of the game on free throws to make the score 72-all with 2:10 to go. Garza nailed a 24-foot three on the next trip down the court to give the home team a three-point edge. Poteete countered with a jumper in the paint as the Eagles trailed 75-74 with 1:24 remaining in the second overtime.

Trailing 81-78 with 10 seconds on the clock, Gathercole's game-tying three-point attempt from the corner rimmed in and out, and Huddlin made one of two free throws to ice the game.

Fanshier finished with 18 points. Huddlin added 15 points and nine rebounds. Garza had 13 points. Rashida Simpson tallied a double-double with 12 points and 15 rebounds. Kyrstie Ehm scored 12 points.

Gathercole led Central Methodist with 16 points and was 5-of-10 from behind the arc. Sutton came up with 14. Robinson recorded 13. Robinson and Williams each had three steals.

Baker shot 46.6 percent (27-of-58) from the field, while Central Methodist was 45.6 percent (31-of-68) from the floor. The Eagles hit 50 percent (7-of-14) from three-point range after halftime, while the Wildcats were only 2-of-13.
