The PCC men's basketball team dropped to 4-11 in the Jayhawk Conference following Wednesday night's home game against Barton County Community College. Pratt finished 0-2 against the Cougars following the 70-59 loss.
The Beavers started the game with a 5-4 lead, but it would be their only lead of the night. A four-point run put PCC within four to end the half. They would tie the game in the second half but never take the lead.
A 35-28 second half clinched the night for the Cougars.
The Beavers won the night on the glass, out rebounding Barton 35-33, but a 20-point difference in shooting percentage was a mountain they couldn't overcome.
Pratt will continue conference play against this Saturday, traveling to Seward County Community College.
