Game Statistics

Kim Moynihan scored 12 points with seven rebounds for Tufts

MEDFORD � Senior co-captain Khalilah Ummah (Litchfield, ME) and junior Katie Tausanovitch (Lyme, NH) both scored 13 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as the Tufts women's basketball team improved to 3-0 with a 73-62 victory over Western New England College on Tuesday night at Cousens Gym.

The Jumbos (3-0) weathered a poor shooting night to take the victory, hitting just 23 of 66 shots for 34.8 percent. Tufts out-rebounded the Golden Bears (2-1) 50-38 and out-scored their guests 25-11 at the free throw line. Junior Kim Moynihan (West Hartford, CT) added 12 points, seven rebounds, two assists and two steals to the Tufts effort. WNEC senior co-captain Jen Dabrowski (Plainville, CT) was the game-high scorer with 22 points and added eight rebounds and six assists.

The visitors had a 22-17 lead after a jumper by Kristi LaBare (Burke, NY) at 6:40 of the first half. However, a three-pointer by Stacy Filocco (Olney, MD) gave Tufts the lead for good at 23-22 with 3:17 remaining until halftime.

Trailing 31-27 at intermission, WNEC pulled within one by opening the second half with a three-pointer by Tiffany DeRosa (Hamden, CT). However, the Jumbos went on to score 14 of the next 16 points to take a 13-point, 45-32 lead at 13:23 of the second half. Moynihan scored five points and Tausanovitch had four during the stretch.

The Tufts lead would primarily be in double figures the rest of the way. A lay-up by Dabrowski at 3:47 brought the margin under 10 points at 60-51. Another Dabrowski jumper had WNEC within eight at 66-58 with 1:04 left in regulation. Jumbo freshman point guard Colleen Hart (Needham, MA), who had left the game early in the first half with an injury but returned to start the second half, made all of her free throws down the stretch to put away the win for the Jumbos. She finished the game 10 for 10 from the line.

Five Jumbos overall finished in double figures for points with Hart and Filocco both adding 10. Filocco had eight in five first-half minutes. Ummah, the reigning NESCAC Player of the Week, scored all of her 13 points in the second half.

WNEC, which shot 39 percent (23/59), also received 13 points, nine rebounds, two assists and two blocks from freshman guard Taryn Belowsky (New Haven, CT). DeRosa finished with 10 points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals.
