Game Statistics

Sophomore Kate Barnosky scored a career-high 18 points in the victory

MEDFORD -- The #16 Tufts University Jumbos, led by four three-pointers and 18 points from sophomore Kate Barnosky (Huntington Station, NY), took care of the #25 Colby College Mules 72-57 in NESCAC women's basketball action on Friday night at Cousens Gymnasium.

Tufts built a lead to as many as 12 points in the first half before the Mules began to find their shooting touch. The Jumbos took a five-point lead into halftime, 34-29, in spite of shooting just 33.3 percent (11/33) compared to 59.1 percent (13/22) for Colby.

Barnosky drilled two three-pointers in each half to pace the Jumbo offense, while junior Julianne Kowalski (Montville, NJ) kept Colby in it through the first half with 10 points on a perfect five for five shooting. Senior Julia Baily (Farmington, CT) poured in 12 second-half points for Tufts as they would run away from the Mules, going up by as many as 23. She would finish with a game-high 20 points on six of 12 shooting.

Tufts would finish at 41.4 percent (24/58) from the field and only turned the ball over eight times, while Colby struggled with the ball, committing 17 turnovers. Sophomore Tiffany Kornegay (Carver, MA) added 12 points and five rebounds for Tufts. For Colby, senior Alison Cappelloni (Sudbury, MA) finished with eight points,  including two three-point field goals, and six rebounds.

The Jumbos improve to 14-2 overall and 2-1 in the NESCAC and will face another Top 25 opponent on Saturday afternoon in #13 Bowdoin College. That game is set for a 2 pm tip at Cousens Gym. Colby, which drops to 12-2 and 1-1 in conference, plays at Bates College tomorrow afternoon at 2 pm.
