Game Statistics

NEW LONDON, Conn. -- Junior Kim Moynihan (West Hartford, CT) poured in a team-high 15 points, leading Tufts University (17-1, 3-1 NESCAC) to a 59-44 NESCAC victory against Connecticut College (10-8, 0-4) in a women's basketball game at Luce Fieldhouse on Friday night. Moynihan was 5 for 8 from the field and 3 for 5 from long distance for the surging Jumbos, who have climbed to #15 in the national poll.

Sophomore forward Julia Baily (Farmington, CT) and first-year guard Colleen Hart (Needham, MA) chipped in with 13 points apiece for the visitors. Senior co-captain Khalilah Ummah (Litchfield, ME) pulled down a game-high 15 rebounds for Coach Carla Berube�s Jumbos.

Connecticut College senior Katy Serafin (Carmel, NY) pumped in a game-high 16 points to go along with seven rebounds for the Camels. First-year forward Cindy Roseen (Wolfeboro, NH) tallied 11 points and 13 boards en route to a double-double.

The Camels opened the game with a productive 16-4 run over the opening 9:37. Serafin had the hot-hand early, knocking down four field goals during the spurt for the hosts. But Tufts answered with a devastating 19-0 run, asserting their size advantage in the post. Hart drained a three-ball with 4:09 remaining and the Jumbos had built a 23-16 lead. The visitors carried a 30-21 advantage into the break.

Moynihan opened the second half with a triple and the Jumbos carried a double-digit for the balance of the evening, holding on for the 59-44 triumph. The visitors held a 46-34 advantage on the boards.

The Jumbos will be seeking their sixth consecutive victory when they visit Wesleyan for a 3:00 pm game in Middletown Saturday afternoon. The Camels will host the Bates College Bobcats for a 3:00 pm NESCAC tilt in New London.
