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.
