Amherst (21-0) to host Tufts (22-0) in women’s basketball

Carla Berube ran her first practice session Nov. 1. Two weeks later, tapping off at the Skidmore Invitational, the Tufts women’s basketball squad shut down the hosts, 50-30.

Foes have failed to reach 40 points against Tufts eight other times since, the Jumbos’ in-your-face ball pressure serving as the foundation for a 22-0 start entering Saturday afternoon’s NESCAC showdown at fellow unbeaten Amherst (21-0).
