The Maryville University women’s basketball team has marked their place in NCAA Division III women’s basketball history with their 73rd consecutive regular season conference victory, breaking the former record of 72 games held by Emmanuel College (Mass.) since the 2006 season. The Saints defeated Fontbonne University 86-65 on the road to improve to 18-3 overall and 13-0 in the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SLIAC).
The Saints will look to continue their streak next Wednesday, February 20, when they host another rival in Webster University, at Moloney Arena. Tip-off is scheduled for 6:00 pm. Maryville will return to action first on Saturday, February 16, when they host Lincoln Christian College in a 3:00 pm non-conference game.
