As the holiday season is less than a week away, Tabor College women’s basketball coach Sean Winter may be using the break to find some answers as to how to get his young team back on track.
Tabor’s play has struggled as of late, and the team dropped its third consecutive game Saturday in Wichita, 58-52, to the Friends Lady Falcons.
The Bluejays are a game up on winless Bethany and McPherson at 1-3 in league play and 2-9 overall with the Lady Swedes two games ahead of Tabor on the year.
While 36 percent shooting isn’t often good enough to win many games, it was for the Falcons as Tabor was simply cold anywhere on the floor — shooting just 11 percent from downtown and 31 percent overall.
The frigid shooting played the Bluejays out of the game by halftime with Friends holding them to a modest 16 points.
Tabor didn’t help itself much at the free-throw line either, shooting 19-for-29.
Kirsten Watson and Jordan Crosson combined for 28 points with 14 apiece.
Crosson’s nine rebounds helped Tabor edge Friends in that department, 44-37.
The Bluejays wrap up December at 6 p.m. Saturday, playing host to the Hastings College Lady Broncos.
