The Jumbos led the Anchorwomen, 28-14 at the break, and netted an additional 24 points during the final 20 minutes to seal the win.
Kate Barnosky finished with nine points, while Hayley Kanner and Ali Rocchi each added eight.
Tufts finished 6 of 9 from the stripe and forced RIC to turn the ball over 20 times, too.
