The Xavier women's basketball team broke its eight game losing streak this weekend with a 58-50 victory over the St. Bonaventure Bonnies.
This win allows the Musketeers to keep a perfect 10-0 record at home when playing the Bonnies.
The Musketeers were led by senior forward Amber Gray with 18 points, who added an additional five boards and two assists for Xavier.
Gray currently leads the team in scoring, averaging 10.8 points per game. She is also averaging 5.9 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 26.5 minutes per game.
It was freshman guard Aliyah Zantt, however, who led the team in assists, dishing out a career-high of six dimes.
As a team, the Musketeers shot 56.3 percent from behind the arc, making nine three-pointers.
A third of these treys came from the frontcourt duo of Gray, who had a perfect night from the three, and freshman Briana Glover, who made one of her two attempts.
Currently, the Xavier women's team sits tied for second-to-last in the Atlantic 10, posting a 1-6 record in the conference and a 7-14 record overall.
The Musketeers will be making the trek up I-75 to take on the University of Dayton Flyers at 7 p.m. on Thursday. The Flyers are currently atop the A-10 standings and have suffered only one loss so far in the 2012-13 season. They are currently ranked No. 18 in the nation and are on a seven-game winning streak.
The Musketeers will hope to continue their recent success with a victory over rival Dayton.
