Game Statistics

Kate Barnosky chipped in eight points and six rebounds to the Tufts win
 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- The Tufts University women's basketball team took a 20-point lead at halftime and cruised to a 70-53 victory over Concordia University Wisconsin on Wednesday afternoon at the Land of Magic Classic hosted by Embry-Riddle University.

Coach Carla Berube's Jumbos will return home from Florida with two convincing wins, a 10-game winning streak, and a 10-1 record overall. The Jumbos are two victories shy of matching the 2007-08 squad's school-record 12-game winning streak. Concordia fell to 5-6 overall.

Tufts, which had an 83-69 win over Allegheny on Tuesday, was led again by junior Colleen Hart (Needham, MA) with 21 points. Senior Julia Baily (Farmington, CT) added 17 points, nine rebounds, and four blocks. Sophomore Tiffany Kornegay (Carver, MA) finished with 15 points and a game-high 10 rebounds.

Meghan Matthies was the lone Concordia player to score in double figures with 11 points. Pearl Wallace recorded eight points and seven rebounds for the Falcons. Tiffany Hendrickson also scored eight points for Concordia, which was held to a 32.3 shooting percentage (20/62) by the Jumbos.

The Jumbos never trailed in the game, but it was close in the early-going. A jumper by Hendrickson had the Falcons within 13-10 at the 15-minute mark of the first half. Tufts scored the next seven points, capped by a three-pointer Kate Barnosky (Huntington Station, NY) that put them up 22-10 with 12:47 until intermission. Concordia got within eight at 22-14 on a lay-up by Ashleigh Galligan, but Tufts scored the next eight points and led by double-figures the rest of the way.

Hart's jumper with three seconds remaining until halftime gave Tufts their biggest lead of the first 20 at 42-22. She had 14 points at the break, and Baily had 10 as the Jumbos shot 52.9 percent (18/34).

The Tufts advantage reached 24 points in the second half, when Kornegay's lay-up at 15:34 made the score 51-27. Tufts was up by 22 (66-44) with 3:28 remaining in the second half, but the Falcons finished the game with a 9-4 run to make the final margin 17 points.
