NEW LONDON, N.H. -- Junior point guard Colleen Hart (Needham, MA) scored 20 points with seven rebounds and five assists as the Tufts University women's basketball team won its fifth straight game after a season-opening loss, 74-48 at Colby-Sawyer College on Saturday afternoon.

The Jumbos (5-1) went 10 for 22 from three-point land, led by Hart's five trifectas in nine attempts. Sophomore Tiffany Kornegay (Carver, MA) added 18 points to the Tufts attack. The Chargers suffered their third straight loss, falling to 2-4 on the season.

The game was close for the first 13 minutes before Tufts pulled away and never looked back. Ahead 19-9, the Jumbos finished the half on a 21-7 run including 11 points from Hart in that stretch. She scored 17 of her 20 points in the first 20 minutes as the Jumbos took a 40-16 advantage to the locker room.

The second half was played relatively evenly as the Jumbos outscored Colby-Sawyer 34-32. Tufts attempted only four treys, but Kornegay took over the offense pouring in 14 of her 18 points in the half.
