The Xavier women's basketball team ended a tough season

on a high note this weekend when they defeated the

University of Massachusetts 70-61 on Senior Night. The win on Sunday followed the Musketeers' loss to the University of Dayton, where Xavier fell to the Flyers at UD Arena 83-54. The women finished the regular season with

an 8-19 record and a 5-9 mark in Atlantic 10 play. Seniors Tyeasha Moss and Sabrina Johnson were honored following their final home game at Cintas Center on Sunday. Both seniors tallied 13 points while Johnson also pulled down nine rebounds. The Musketeers were the benefactors of an 18-point second half lead. Xavier was able to build the lead with solid bench play, where they outscored the Minutewomen 18-3 in bench points. The Musketeers came out hot, shooting 61 percent from the field in the first half on their way to a season-high 43 points in the first half.

UMass was able to cut the lead to four with five minutes remaining but Xavier was able to sink their final five free throws to ice any comeback. The Musketeers dominated on the boards, hauling in 42 rebounds to UMass' 26 boards. Junior forward Jessica Pachko almost recorded another

double-double by scoring eight points to go along with 10 rebounds. "Our post players did a very good job of attacking the glass tonight," head coach Amy Waugh said. "We came out ready to play tonight and did a really good job of being the aggressor," Waugh said. On Feb. 21, the Musketeers fell at the hands of rival Dayton. Xavier got behind early in the first half, effectively putting the game out of reach. The Flyers dominated the glass, out-rebounding Xavier 47-35. The Musketeers struggled to create offense, resulting in 22 turnovers for the game. Moss played well in her final career road game, scoring 11 points in addition to eight rebounds

and five assists. Xavier is the ninth seed in the A-10 Tournament and faces off against LaSalle University on Friday at 11:30 a.m.
