COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUP

Roundup: UMass opens strong in women’s basketball

Saturday’s season opener for the UMass women’s basketball team was extra special for Jasmine Watson. The senior cocaptain delivered 21 points to drive the Minutewomen to an 83-53 rout of Kent State at the Mullins Center, and in the process became the 18th player in program history to reach 1,000 points.

Watson filled the stat sheet with 8 rebounds, 4 steals, 4 blocks, and 3 assists. She finished 8 of 11 from the field. Eleven players scored for the Minutewomen, with Emily Mital providing 16 points, Kiara Bomben 13, and Rashida Timbilla 11 to go with a team-high 10 rebounds.
