All things don’t always go as planned.

The Southwestern College men’s basketball team fell to the Tabor Bluejays Saturday evening 81-62 inside Stewart Fieldhouse.

Throughout the first half, the two teams battled, later heading into halftime tied up at 28-28. For the second half, it was expected for a tight finish, but that didn’t necessarily happen.

The Builders couldn’t capitalize on shots as they ended 20 percent behind the arc on 4-20 attempts, and just 37 percent from the field.

For the Bluejays, they shot 45 percent behind the arc, and 44 percent from the field. Five players ended in double figures with Nashom Carter, junior guard, having a team-high of 17.

Zhadidi Robinson, sophomore guard, leads all scorers with 22. Only one other Builder touched double figures, Troy Baker, senior forward, who had 13.

This loss drops the Builders to 10-7 in the KCAC and lifts the Bluejays to 8-8. The two teams will meet again soon as the Builders travel up to Hillsboro Feb. 15.

Next, the Builders will face McPherson Feb. 8 inside Stewart Fieldhouse at 7 p.m. The Bulldogs sit at 13-7 in the KCAC.
