The Musketeers pulled out a win against Rhode Island this

Saturday, snapping their 11-game losing streak and winning an Atlantic 10 matchup for the first time this season. Senior Tyeasha Moss led the team to victory with

her career high 27 points. "They were extremely focused

on coming here for one reason and that was getting a win,"

head coach Amy Waugh said, "I thought from start to finish they did a good job of playing hard. We had our stretches, our lapses, but at the same time, they stuck together and they stuck to the game plan and I'm very proud of

them for that."

The Musketeers are now 4-15 on the season and 1-5 in A-10 play. Junior Jessica Pachko scored 14 points and got four rebounds, sophomore Ashley Wanninger added nine points and three rebounds and redshirt freshman Lakeisha Crouch tied her careerhigh with seven points. After an impressive jump shot by Moss with 15:31 left to play,

Xavier was up by 13 points, which proved to be their largest lead of the game. The Rams tried to come back, bringing the score to 49-46 with 7:41 to play, but Xavier was able to pull away with two straight three pointers little more than three minutes left on the clock. During the first half, the Musketeers shot 50 percent from the floor and were 7-for-7 in free throws. Two Musketeers scored in the double digits in the first twenty minutes of play, Moss with 11 points and Pachko with 10. At halftime, Xavier led 34-23, holding its largest halftime lead of the season.

The Musketeers finished the game shooting 49 percent from the floor and just under 91 percent from the line.

The Rams were 46.8 percent and 84.6 percent respectively. Xavier also committed a season-low 10 turnovers and had 11 assists. Waugh said, "It's a great day and we're going to enjoy it tonight, but we've got to turn the page and we've got a lot to improve on before we play the next game."
