Game Statistics

Katie Tausanovitch was the only Jumbo to score in double figures with 14 points

HARTFORD -- Senior center Katie Tausanovitch (Lyme, NH) scored 14 points, grabbed four rebounds and blocked three shots to lead the visiting Tufts University Jumbos to a 62-46 win over the Trinity College Bantams in a non-conference women's basketball game between two conference teams this evening at Oosting Gymnasium.

The Jumbos, ranked No. 16 in the nation, improve to 18-3. Tufts won at Trinity, 64-42, last Friday in a league game. Trinity falls to 15-6 with its fourth consecutive loss and its second home loss to Tufts in five days.

Trinity held a 6-2 lead in the first two minutes, before the Jumbos rattled off 16 unanswered points to go ahead, 18-6, with just under 12 minutes on the clock. Tufts cruised to a 34-17 lead at the break, as sophomore guard Lindsay Weiner (Rockville, MD) and first-year forward Rachel Figaro (Windham, NH) provided a spark with nine and eight points off the bench, respectively. The Jumbos, who held the Bantams to six field goals in 26 attempts in the first stanza (23.1 percent), maintained a double-digit advantage for the entire second half.

Junior forward Julia Baily (Farmington, CT) and Figaro grabbed seven boards apiece to pace Tufts on the glass, and junior guard Vanessa Miller (Cincinnati, OH) collected a game-high six assists and four rebounds.

Trinity junior forward Christine Card (Waterbury, CT) had a team-high 14 points and led all rebounders with nine, while freshman guard Michelle Royals (Torrington, CT) dished out a team-high four assists.

Tufts wraps up its regular-season home schedule and its conference slate on Saturday (Feb. 14) with a home NESCAC game against Bates at 3 pm. The Jumbos have already secured a home game for the first round of the conference tournament on February 21. Trinity has games at Middlebury and at Williams this weekend.
