Katie Hersey had 23 points including 13-13 from the foul line to lead the Lord Jeffs to a 74-59 win over Babson. This the fourth consecutive win by the Jeffs as they head into this weekend's matchup with archrival Williams with a 6-3 record.
Turnovers and fouls were the story early in a low scoring first half as Babson led 10-8 ten minutes into the game. But baskets on the opening four possessions of the second half stepped up the tempo of play. Behind a tenacious zone defense, the Jeffs went on an 8-0 run to lead by as much as 24 points.
Beth Giovannini led Babson with 17 points and six rebounds. The Beavers fall to 7-3.
