Reiff, Kostakis Dominant in Convincing Win Over Colby

January 29, 2005

AMHERST, MA - First-year phenom Stefanie Reiff (Hinsdale, LI) tallied 21 points, seven rebounds and seven assists, while classmate Matia Kostakis (Andover, MA) added 12 points, 14 rebounds, three blocks and a trio of steals to lead the Amherst women’s basketball team to a 70-60 win over visiting NESCAC foe Colby College on Saturday afternoon. The Jeffs improved to 12-6 overall and 3-2 in conference play, while Colby dropped to 5-13 and 1-4.

Amherst led the entire way after jumping out to a 10-0 lead on buckets by sophomore Jenny Muller (Andover, MA), junior Katie Latham (Wakefield, MA) and Reiff. Colby managed to trim the deficit to two points on several occasions in the second half, thanks in part to a 20-for-23 showing from the free throw line and 16 Amherst turnovers. The Jeffs iced the game from the line down the stretch, nailing eight of 11 free-throw attempts over the final 1:08.

Muller and Latham joined Reiff and Kostakis in double figures with 11 and 10 points, respectively. Colby first-year Regina Wohl (Westbrook, ME) led all scorers with 22 points, while senior Wendy Bonner (Lexington, MA) added 16 and rookie Katie McCabe (Watertown, CT) chipped in with 11.

Amherst returns to action Tuesday at 6 p.m. against visiting NESCAC and Little Three rival Wesleyan.
