Two league victories this past week evened the Tabor College women’s basketball team’s record at 5-5 in the KCAC and 7-12 overall.
The Lady ’Jays earned a 68-50 home victory Saturday against McPherson College, two days after defeating Bethany College at home, 52-45.
Kirsten Watson led three Lady Bluejays against McPherson in double figures with a game-high 20 points, while Stephanie Silvas and Gina Hullet each added 11.
Sarah Wyckoff just missed a double-double with eight points and 10 rebounds.
After taking a 27-21 lead at the half, Tabor poured it on even more in the second 20 minutes, out-scoring McPherson, 41-29.
Combined with the Bethany victory, the Lady ’Jays moved into sixth place in the KCAC at 5-5.
Three players also were in double figures Thursday in the seven-point victory against Bethany.
This time it was Hullet leading the way with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Watson had 12 points and three rebounds, and Brittany Roth had 11 and four.
It was a team effort as seven of the eight Lady ’Jays who played scored. Amanda Payne, the only player not to put the ball in the basket, still had two rebounds, two assists, and a steal in just 15 minutes of action.
Tabor trails KCAC front-runner Sterling by four league games, but is only one game out of third place behind Friends, Southwestern, and Ottawa who are all 6-4.
Tabor will play Thursday when it travels to 11-8 Southwestern.
