Baker is 6-0 on the season for the third time in four years and has won 23-straight games against a Heart of America Athletic Conference opponent.

Four of Baker’s six wins have come against ranked opponents, including a 31-27 win over number 23 William Penn, a 48-41 win at number nine Grand View, a 44-37 win at number 14 Benedictine and its 65-42 win over number 23 Peru State last Saturday.
