Jumbos take the NCAA Championship Game

Text by Alex Schroeder, Photos by Evan Sayles

The Jumbos came out in the first quarter of the NCAA Div. III National Championship and executed exactly as they needed to. They kept Thomas More’s three-time Div. III Player of the Year and NCAA Tournament MVP senior Sydney Moss from getting hot, they worked the ball inside and out, knocking down jump shots and layups alike, and by the end of the first 10 minutes, Tufts held a 17-11 lead. It was an ideal start, and three more quarters of that type of refined play could have seen the Jumbos hoisting the championship trophy in Indianapolis.

In the end, though, Thomas More went on one too many runs, and the Jumbos struggled with foul trouble as early as the second quarter. Unable to recapture their momentum from the opening 10 minutes, the Jumbos fell to the Saints, 63-51, giving Thomas More its second undefeated national championship season in a row. It’s just the second time in Div. III history that a team has had back-to-back undefeated national title seasons. They finish off the last two seasons with a 66-0 overall record.

The Daily goes to Anime Boston

Tufts Daily reporter Abigail Feldman and photographer Ray Bernoff attended Anime Boston this past weekend. We’ve documented the convention here:

Thirty-six Tufts Anime Brigade members and three alumni joined an estimated 25, 000 people who attended Anime Boston, an annual three-day convention celebrating Japanese animation and pop-culture. The event, which kicked off last Friday at the Hynes Convention Center, has become the fifth largest anime convention in North America since it began in 2003. Many attendees, such as those pictured here, engage in cosplay—the practice of dressing up like characters found in movies, TV series or comic books. In Addition to enjoying the art, merchandise and anime series on display at Anime Boston, several Brigade members —seniors Matthew Bogan and Lara Halamka, junior Dalia Berkowitz and alumnus David Heilbrun (LA ’15)—presented panels on various topics c anime shows and video games.
