Women's Basketball | Tufts wins easily at Trinity - again

    The women's basketball team secured its 18th victory of the season last night with a 62-46 victory over the Trinity Bantams. The Jumbos moved to 18-3 overall but stayed at 6-2 in the NESCAC with the win, as the game did not count for the conference standings. The game was the second between the two teams within the last five days, as the Jumbos defeated the Bantams by a similar score Friday night, winning 64-42.     The Jumbos were led in scoring by senior Katie Tausanovitch with 14 points. Tausanovitch went 5-for-11 from the floor and was 4-for-4 from the charity stripe. She also grabbed four rebounds, three blocks and a steal.     As a whole, the Jumbos weren't spectacular offensively but certainly showed their defensive prowess. The Jumbos' 62 points were their fourth-fewest total this season, but their 46 points allowed to the Bantams were also their fifth-fewest on the year.     The Jumbos' field goal percentage was a solid 42.3 percent, as they went 22-for-52 from the floor and 3-for-10 from beyond the arc. On the other side, Trinity only went 14-for-53 from the floor for a dismal 26.4 percent and 2-for-12 from the three-point line. Each team had seven steals, and the Jumbos out-blocked Trinity eight to one. The biggest disparity in the statistics was points off the bench: the Jumbos scored 32 bench points to Trinity's 11. The only category in which Trinity bested Tufts was rebounds, by a count of 39 to 34.
