Amherst stifles Tufts to take championship game

The Amherst women's basketball team took down Tufts on Saturday, 52-29, to win the DIII women's college basketball title. Amherst's swarming defense gave the opposing lineup fits all night, including holding Tufts to just six points as a team in the first half. Tufts found a bit of its scoring streak in the second half though, but it was too little and too late to help topple Amherst. Undefeated Amherst is the new DIII women's basketball champions.
