Erica Hemmert led Tabors balanced scoring attack with 17 points while Shannon Kroeker, Angela Kroeker, and Jessica Vineyard all add 10 points.



Concordia falls to 13-3 for the season.



The Tabor men played inspired basketball in the first half and built a 30-17 advantage wity 3:48 to play in the half, but St. Gregorys’ outscored Tabor 22-4 over the next six minutes to grab the lead they’d hold until the final horn sounded with the Cavaliers on top 68-61.



In a game that resembled a wrestling match more than a basketball game at times, the Bluejays were bullied out of their offensive continuity and weren’t able to match the physical play allowed by the officials.



Tabor was led in scoring by Tyson Ratzlaff who had 22 points, but was the only Bluejay to score in double figures.



With the loss the Bluejays record drops to 4-10 for the season.



Tabor gets back into KCAC play this Thursday nite when they host the McPherson Bulldogs with the women’s games scheduled to begin at 6:00.
