Senior Profile: Maggie Russell, Tufts’ ultimate women’s basketball force

When most people think of Tufts women’s basketball in the past few years, the first name that typically comes to their mind is Maggie Russell. As a dominant 6-foot-1 forward, Russell played an important role in the Jumbos’ success throughout her career. She didn’t just play an important role on the court though; she was also impactful off the court as a role model for the younger players.


A day in the life of Ozzie Fleischer on game day

As starting shortstop for the last three years, senior Ozzie Fleischer has consistently been both a dynamic and an impactful player on the Jumbos baseball squad. Fleischer hails from Texas and attended Fort Worth Country Day High School. At Tufts, he is majoring in political science and will be attending the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy next year. Baseball fans might get the chance to see him on the field as shortstop for another season thanks to his extra year of eligibility due to COVID-19.

Men’s basketball splits doubleheader weekend at home

Tufts men’s basketball looked to conclude their regular season on a high note in games against Wesleyan Cardinals and Trinity Bantams over the weekend.

The Cardinals sat at 12–10 for the season going into Friday, while the Jumbos had the record of 17–5.


Tufts men’s basketball takes a hard-fought win against Williams College

With a win at home against Bates College the weekend prior, the Tufts men’s basketball team was ready to take on Williams College and Middlebury College over the weekend. Both games had important implications for the NESCAC, especially for the Jumbos as their conference record sat at 1–3. In the last seven years, no team has won the NESCAC with a conference record worse than 7–3, making losing more than three games extremely detrimental to championship hopes.

Tufts men’s basketball falls to Amherst, Hamilton in NESCAC play

The Tufts men’s basketball team was in a winning mood after its win at home against Clark University, knowing its next six games were away. The first three against UMass Dartmouth, University of Saint Joseph and No. 5-ranked Keene State were all wins. The squad then headed to the Kingsmen Classic just after Christmas to Thousand Oaks, Calif., where they were scheduled to take on California Lutheran University and UT Dallas. Tufts took its first loss of the season, losing to Cal Lutheran 70–66, before bouncing back to beat UT Dallas 84–72.


Tufts football falls to Middlebury in tight game for season finale

In what was predicted to be a potentially league champion-deciding matchup, both the Middlebury Panthers and the Tufts Jumbos were ready to rock and roll on Saturday. Middlebury started with the ball, and senior wide receiver Carter Stockwell got the Panthers moving with a 16-yard rush up the middle. The Panthers charged downfield, but a throw from senior quarterback Cole Kennon was picked off in the endzone by the Jumbos’ senior defensive back Drew Guida.
