Game Statistics

Julia Baily led the Jumbos with 16 points and eight rebounds

HARTFORD -- Junior forward Julia Baily (Farmington, CT) scored a game-high 16 points and added a team-high eight rebounds to lead the visiting Tufts University Jumbos to a 64-42 win over the Trinity College Bantams in New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) women�s basketball action this evening at Oosting Gymnasium.

The Jumbos, ranked No. 15 in the nation, improve to 17-2 overall and 6-1 in the league with their fifth victory in a row. With the win, Tufts holds on to first place in the league. Trinity falls to 15-4 overall and 3-3 in the NESCAC with its second consecutive loss.

Tufts, which led the entire game, made its first four shots and raced out to a 9-2 lead. Baily scored the first three Tufts hoops and then sophomore guard Colleen Hart (Needham, MA) added a three-pointer. Trinity closed the gap to two points at 15-13 on a steal and lay-up by sophomore guard Kristen Fahey (Cumberland, RI) midway through the first half. The Jumbos outscored Trinity, 14-2, over the next 10 minutes to take a 29-15 lead into the break. Senior Katie Tausanovitch (Lyme, NH) contributed five points to that stretch. Tufts held the Bantams to six field goals in 25 attempts in the first half.

The Jumbos led by as many as 19 points in the second half, but Trinity pulled within 12 at 52-40 on a jumper by junior forward Christine Card (Waterbury, CT) at the 6:26 mark. Tufts again took control defensively to end the game, holding Trinity without a point over the final five minutes of the contest.

Hart totaled 14 points and five assists for the Jumbos, while senior center Tausanovitch added 12 points and seven boards. Tufts outrebounded Trinity, 52-34, and won despite missing nine out of 13 tries from the foul line.

Junior co-captain guard Claire Arnstein (Hicksville, NY) was the lone Bantam in double figures in scoring with 10 points and Card notched a game-high 10 boards and a pair of blocked shots.

The Jumbos travel to Amherst tomorrow to face the #9 Jeffs with first place on the line. Trinity welcomes Bates College for a 3:00 start also on Saturday.
