MEDFORD -- The #10 Tufts University Jumbos outlasted the Trinity College Bantams, 68-58, in a game that was nip-and-tuck throughout on Friday night in NESCAC women's basketball action at Cousens Gymnasium.

Neither team could establish momentum early in the second half as there were four ties in the half, and seven overall for the game. Tufts finally took the lead for good, 51-49, on a jumper by senior Julia Baily (Farmington, CT) with 12:03 remaining. Baily collected a double-double with 15 points and 13 rebounds for the contest.

Tufts build its lead to nine with 5:40 left and continued on for the victory being led by 21 points from Hart, who was four for six from three-point range. Kornegay finished with 14 while junior Vanessa Miller (Cincinnati, OH) cracked double-figures with 10 points.
