BAILY EARNS JUMBOS' SECOND STRAIGHT NESCAC PLAYER OF THE WEEK
-- Tufts University senior forward Julia Baily (Farmington,
CT/Miss Porter's) has been a model of productive consistency
early in the 2009-10 season for the Jumbos. In four games so far,
she's double-doubled in each of them including a pair of 20-point,
15-rebound contests last week that earned her New England Small
College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) honors.
Coach Carla Berube's team has now won the first two NESCAC Player of
the Week awards. Junior point guard Colleen Hart (Needham,
MA/Needham) was recognized last week. Both Baily and Hart earned
the accolade for the first time in their careers. The two conference
POTW's matches the total that the team earned in the previous two
Baily scored 20 points with 15 rebounds when Tufts knocked off
previously undefeated Endicott on Tuesday, 75-64. She had seven
offensive rebounds in the game and scored on nine of 17 field goal
attempts. Against Brandeis, she went 20 and 15 again as the Jumbos
knocked off the #9 team in the D3Hoops.com poll. She had 12 points
and eight rebounds in the second half as Tufts ended the Judges'
15-game regular-season winning streak against non-conference teams.
For the week, Baily averaged 34.5 minutes per game.
Through November 29, Baily leads the NESCAC in rebounding with 12.5
per game and is third in scoring with 20.3 points per game. She's
topped 20 points and 10 rebounds in all four games. She was an
All-Conference Second Team selection last season when she led Tufts
with 12.9 points per game and 8.1 rebounds per game.
The Jumbos are 3-1 overall heading into their first home game of the
season against Salem State on Tuesday night.
