Wawer finds passion, future in coaching

Entering college, most students hope to find their future calling in the classroom. John Wawer, however, found his on the hardwood. Wawer, a senior majoring in international relations, is currently in the middle of his second season as Director of Basketball Operations for the men’s basketball team. Wawer, however, did not expect to find himself in this […]


Jumbos stay above .500 after weekend split

Fans coming to the Cousens Gym Friday night hoping to see Linsanity 2.0 — courtesy of NBA point guard Jeremy Lin’s younger brother Joseph — were disappointed. Instead, they witnessed Tufts put together a solid team performance in its 70-63 win over Lin and his Hamilton Continentals. However, fans that stuck around for Saturday’s game […]


Following Sabety injury, Jumbos stay afloat in NESCAC

Before its two-game homestand this past weekend, in which it split games against Wesleyan and Conn. College, the men’s basketball team received news of the biggest loss — both literally and figuratively — of its season when 6′ 8″ sophomore center Hunter Sabety suffered an apparently serious knee injury. The timetable for Sabety’s return is […]


Men’s soccer takes home national title

When the field of 64 was set in early November, Tufts was little more than an afterthought for title contender, as the bracket was littered with past national champions, All-Americans and long-tenured coaches. The Jumbos had won fewer NCAA tournament games than some teams had won NCAA titles. They had a head coach who was […]


Tufts confident, prepared heading into Final Four

While there was a significant amount of optimism surrounding the men’s soccer team entering the 2014 season, few expected the Jumbos to keep their season going into December. While Tufts showed that it can compete with the best teams in the country, tying Amherst and taking the notoriously-difficult NESCAC regular-season title, it takes a different kind of […]


No. 11 Engineers outlast Jumbos in overtime battle

The men’s basketball team dropped to 2-3 last Tuesday, losing to Massachusetts Institute of Technology 71-64 in overtime before the Thanksgiving break. Although the loss may have left an empty feeling in the team’s stomach that not even turkey and stuffing could fill, there were many positives to take away from the Jumbos’ performance against […]


Jumbos advance to their first-ever Final Four

The men’s soccer team took its miracle run through the Div. III NCAA tournament to new heights this past weekend, defeating No. 10 Muhlenberg 2-0 in the Sweet 16 before pulling off one of the biggest upsets in the tournament this year by beating No. 1 Messiah in the Elite Eight by a score of 1-0 […]


Jumbos advance to Sweet 16

The men’s soccer team lives to see another weekend after winning its first and second round games in the NCAA Div. III tournament. On Saturday, Tufts took down Dickinson College by a score of 2-1. The team followed up that victory with a convincing 2-0 win over sectional host Wheaton College on Sunday, making it one […]


Tufts prepares for bounce-back season

Although the men’s basketball team is coming off a year in which it went only 4-6 and snuck into the NESCAC playoffs as the No. 7 seed, those numbers belie the promise that the 2014-2015 season holds. Last season, the expectations were set high for a Jumbos team that had finished 7-3 in the NESCAC […]


Camels upset Jumbos in first round of playoffs

As the rain came down, so too did the men’s soccer team’s chances at winning its first-ever NESCAC championship. Before Saturday, the Jumbos appeared to be primed for a title-run. Led by a dominant senior class, the Jumbos had not lost a game in the NESCAC. They were first in the NESCAC in goals scored and […]
