Julia Baily (#32) joined teammate Colleen Hart as 1,000 points scorers for Tufts this season

MEDFORD -- Overshadowed by the Tufts University women's basketball team's season-ending loss at Kean University in the second round of the 2010 NCAA Tournament on March 6, senior forward Julia Baily (Farmington, CT) became the 10th Jumbo player to reach the 1,000 career points milestone during the game.

While producing her 13th double-double of the season with 17 points and 11 rebounds against Kean, Baily achieved 1,000 points on a three-point play with 8:16 remaining in the second half. She added two more points and finished her career at 1,002 points in 104 games for an average of 9.6 points per game.

Baily scored her 1,000 points essentially in three seasons. During her first year with the team in 2006-07, she played in 22 games and scored 34 points. She emerged as a key player off the bench as a sophomore in 2007-08, scoring 222 points for a 7.4 average. Last season, she developed into an All-Conference and All-Region performer who led Tufts in scoring average at 12.9 points per game with a total of 322 points. She improved again this year, finishing her senior season with 424 points for a 15.7 average.

A All-Region third team selection and All-New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) second team pick last year, Baily was named to the All-NESCAC first team this season. All-Region honors for 2010 have not yet been announced. She reached 1,000 points without a three-pointer in her career. Her array of post moves, along with a reliable jumper, was complemented by her ability to get to the line and make free throws. She finished her career 234 for 299 in free throws, an excellent .783 percentage.

Baily is the second Tufts player to accomplish 1,000 career points this season. Junior guard Colleen Hart (Needham, MA) reached a grand on January 30 at Connecticut College.

Under Coach Carla Berube, Baily played for three Tufts teams that won games in the NCAA Tournament. The Jumbos accumulated an 87-23 record for a .791 winning percentage during Baily's four years with the team.
