In a close game throughout the first three quarters of play, no worries for Baker and company.
The Warriors led the Jags 24-22 at the half, and took that two-point adavatage — 40-38 — into the fourth quarter.
And that is when senior guard Cole Dysinger took things over for Southwestern with the game on the line.,
The Warrior guard tallied 12 of his 24 points in the final stanza, helping keep the Warriors undefeated with a hard-fought, 59-53 win over the Jaguars.
Chase Eastham joined Dysinger in double figures with 12 points, helping Southwestern move to 3-0 on the young season.
