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.
And now for the game…
“I think my team battled, you know, we didn’t give up, made it a game in the fourth quarter by making plays and just playing tough basketball the way we have all season.” -Coach Carla Berube
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.
“This was the fifth year we attended as a club, and the convention always exceeds our expectations,” Bogan and Halamka, Brigade treasurer and president, respectively, said. “We love the opportunity to meet and spend time with anime fans we wouldn’t have encountered otherwise.”
Tufts teams impressed their fans this winter season, many qualifying for championship titles. Congratulations to all the teams for doing so well and we are excited to see track and field’s ongoing performance as they move outdoors for their spring season. Look out for a special basketball story after the women’s team competes in the finals on Monday.
“It was awesome…I’ve never seen that many people in our gym. Being able to feed of that energy, we thrive on that.” – Junior tri-captain Tom Palleschi
This week Evan Sayles continued to produce interesting and candid sports shots showing the intensity of the competition between athletes.
We photographed new science initiatives, like the upcoming Science, Technology and Society program, and the experiments at the Human-Computer Interaction lab.
We had some beautiful days this week, and were able to capture great outside moments.
And check out our coverage of comedian Natasha Leggero performing on campus: http://picturetufts.tuftsdaily.com/2016/03/17/natasha-leggero-performs/
Stay tuned for our coverage of spring break 🙂
This Wednesday night, the Tufts Entertainment Board brought comedian Natasha Leggero to Cohen Auditorium for a stand-up comedy performance. The new all female comedy group Tufts Funny Ladies opened the show with stand-up, skits and a musical number, debuting what they have been working on for weeks. Leggero headlined the event with an hour of standup and a “matchmaking” portion. This last part of the show included audience participation, in which she attempted to schedule a date for an audience member by bringing him and four women to the stage to determine which of the four woman he should date.
Here are our photos from the event by photographer Henry Hintermeister:
