Next Stop for Women’s Basketball Is NCAA Tourney

The Tufts University women’s basketball team won its second straight NESCAC title on March 1, pulling away from Bowdoin College in the second half to earn a 68–52 victory at Cousens Gym.

Four Jumbos scored in double digits, led by junior Emma Roberson, with 16 points. Sophomore Michela North finished with 14 points, eight rebounds and four blocks. Top-seeded Tufts (26–1) earns the conference’s automatic berth into the NCAA tournament and will very likely host first- and second-round action at Cousens this weekend, March 6–7.
