St. Bonaventure University Athletic News

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – Riding a program-best 14-game winning streak, the 25-2 St. Bonaventure women's basketball team moved up to No. 19 in the Associated Press Poll released Monday afternoon.

The Bonnies, undefeated in Atlantic 10 Conference play at 12-0, are coming off a 66-48 win over Xavier on Saturday in front of a Homecoming Weekend crowd. The victory extended Bonaventure's regular-season A-10 winning streak to 16 straight, dating back to last season.

The only team in the nation with more wins than St. Bonaventure is No. 1 Baylor (27-0). No. 3 Notre Dame is also 25-2 on the year.

Bonaventure, which broke into the AP Top 25 three weeks ago at No. 25, was ranked No. 22 last week before cracking the top-20 for the first time in program history on Monday.

The ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll will be released Tuesday afternoon. The Bonnies were ranked No. 25 in that poll last week.

SBU returns to action in its regular-season home finale on Wednesday against Fordham. Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. from Bob Lanier Court.
