The Tabor College Lady Bluejays won yet another game this weekend and secured the number one spot in the KCAC. The team won their 16th game in a row on Saturday when they beat Kansas Wesleyan 77-66.
“If was a big win because it puts us at the top of the conference standings with two games remaining. Our players have worked hard to put ourselves in this position but there is more work to do in order to win a championship,” said Coach Shawn Reed.
While they started out slow ending the first quarter with only 13 points to KW’s 19 points, the Bluejays outscored the Coyotes for the rest of the game. Morgan Ediger led the team with 27 points and four rebounds. Taylor Deniston chipped in with 22 points and her own four rebounds.
“We played very well at Kansas Wesleyan. Offensively we were very efficient, and we had outstanding play from senior guards Morgan Ediger and Taylor Deniston. Defensively, the second and third quarters were very strong and we did a good job of limiting three point field goals and keeping them off the free-throw line,” said Reed. “I thought we did a good job of handling their press and they played a lot of zone and we did a good job of moving the ball and finding good shots. I thought our shot selection was pretty solid as well.”
