Four Tufts basketball players earn all-conference honors

    The NESCAC awards for the men’s and women’s basketball seasons were released yesterday, honoring the performance of four Jumbos. Sophomore Colleen Hart, last year’s NESCAC Rookie of the Year, jumped from the All-Conference second team to the first team, while junior leading scorer Julia Baily, replacing last year’s NESCAC Player of the Year Khalilah Ummah (LA ’08), garnered second-team honors in her first year as a starter. Rounding it out for the women’s team, senior co-captain Kim Moynihan was selected as the Defensive Player of the Year, making her the second Jumbo given the award in as many years. On the men’s side, junior Jon Pierce made the second team for the second consecutive year after leading the conference in points and rebounds.
