DAYTON, Ohio -- Andrea Hoover scored 19 points and Samantha MacKay added 18 points and seven assists as No. 12 Dayton wrapped up its first Atlantic 10 Conference regular-season title by beating Saint Joseph's 73-66 Sunday.
The Flyers (26-1, 14-0) set a record for victories since moving to Division I in the 1985-86 season. Both teams advanced to Saturday's Atlantic 10 tournament quarterfinals, where Saint Joseph's (20-8, 11-3) will be the host and fourth seed.
A 16-4 run in the final 6 minutes of the first half gave Dayton a 37-25 halftime lead. Kelley Austria hit two 3-pointers during that run.
The Flyers led by as many as 18 points in the second half. Erin Shields and Natasha Cloud led a Saint Joseph's rally that cut it to four, but MacKay secured the win with four free throws in the final 17 seconds.
Shields scored 28 points and Cloud 17 for the Hawks.
Twenty years after winning gold in Atlanta, members of the 1996 U.S. Olympic team reunited and walked down memory lane while being honored by the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame.
At Saturday's Women's Basketball Hall of Fame induction, this year's class -- including Natalie Williams and Jackie Stiles -- spoke about the ties that bind everyone in the women's hoops world.
Disappointed by being left off the U.S. Olympic volleyball team? Just reach the Olympics in another sport. Natalie Williams, one of six Hall of Fame inductees, was that athletically gifted.
