Baker downs Jay in tourney opener

Published: Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at 10:06 PM.

The Royals tried to fight back in the third quarter as sloppy play by the Gators allowed Jay to keep at least a glimmer of hope as it cut the Baker lead to 41-28 at the end of third quarter.

Whatever hope the Royals might have had faded quickly at the hands of Sarah Hudson who nine of her 17 points in the first three minutes and 10 seconds of the fourth quarter.

A Hudson 3-pointer with 4:50 left in the game put Baker up 54-30 and was the last the score of the game for the Gators as Wagner emptied the bench with about four minutes left in the game.

With the Baker backups on the floor the Royals scored the last 14 points of the game but it wasn't enough as they ended their season with a 5-18 record.

"It's always nice when you get an opportunity to play everyone, particularly some of the younger ones," Wagner said. "I'm senior laden any way so when I get the opportunity to play some of the younger ones and give them significant minutes it's always good."

Anderson led the Gators with 18 points. Hudson added 17 and Chestnut's 11 points gave Baker three players in double figures.

Hillary Hendricks scored 16 points to lead the Royals in scoring.
