BAKER — Ask Baker girls basketball coach Brian Wagner and he’ll be the first to tell you there’s no such thing as an ugly win.

“A win is a win,” he said. “I had a buddy tell me, ‘Winning is the best deodorant,’ and it certainly is. It (a win) leaves you smelling good the rest of the week.”

Baker’s 55-42 win over Central on Monday might not have been a thing of beauty, but Wagner wasn’t about to complain.

“We had some bright spots,” he said. “We had a very good third quarter.

Central has a tendency to be physical and we have a tendency to be aggressive as well. I think it (the uneven pace of the game) had to do with the fact that we missed some easy shots and threw the ball away.”

Even with a slow start shooting the Gators (14-6) jumped to a 9-0 lead in the first five minutes of play.

Cassidy Anderson, who led all scorers with 20 points, scored the game’s first basket with 7:13 left in the first quarter. A Sarah Hudson 3-pointer with six minutes left in the period made it 5-0 and a Kathryn Quigg free throw made it 6-0.
