Tabor takes pair from Kansas Wesleyan

The Tabor College women traveled to Salina Thursday night and came home with an easy 77-53 win over the shorthanded Coyotes.

Wesleyan entered the game with just eight players suited for action and it proved costly as the depth of 9th ranked Tabor wore the Coyotes down.

Tabor held the Coyotes without a field goal for the games first 11 minutes as the Bluejays built a 36-14 lead by halftime.

Tabor coach Rusty Allen substituted freely throughout the game as Tabor cruised home with the 24 point win.

Tabor was led by Erica Hemmert with 18 points and Stacie Herman who added 15.

The win was Tabor’s 16th straight and kept them atop the KCAC standings with a 14-1 conference record while improving their overall mark to 21-4.

Wesleyan falls to 2-13 and 4-21.

The Tabor men faced a Coyote team that was winless in 14 previous KCAC tries but came close on numerous occasions.

This game proved to be no different as the game was tied at 35-all at halftime.

Tabor managed to build a 61-51 lead with just over seven minutes to play but a 12-0 run by Wesleyan put the Coyotes on top 63-61 with just under four minutes remaining.

Tabor however, concluded the game on a 15-2 run to capture a hard fought 76-65 win.

The Bluejays were led in scoring by Anthony Monson with 17, Brad Gattis added 15 and Andy Brubacher had 13.

With their seventh straight win, Tabor improved to 17-8 overall and 11-4 in conference play.

Tabor’s win coupled with Bethel’s upset victory over Sterling College puts Tabor in a tie for first place with the Warriors with just three games remaining.

The Bluejays travel to Lindsborg Saturday night to battle the Swedes with the women’s game scheduled to tip of at 5:00 p.m.
