Lady Muskies Win Opener in Thrilling Fashion

The 2017-18 Women's Basketball season got off to a fantastic start for the Lady Musketeers with a thrilling overtime victory over opponent New Hampshire. Down by 3, Xavier Forward Anniina Aijanen hit a game-tying 3 point shot with .4 seconds left to put the game into overtime. The momentum carried over into the OT period with the Lady Muskies completing the comeback win by a score of 71-66. Xavier had two players score double digits, Senior Forward Anniina Aijanen with 12, and Senior Guard Jada Byrd with 13. Solid defense and team play down the stretch brought the Lady Musketeers their first win of the season, and what a win it was.

This season-opening win extends the Lady Musketeers undefeated home opener record while playing at Cintas to 18-0.

Next up for the Lady Musketeers is a home match against Mt. St Mary's on Tuesday, November 14. Tip-off is set for 7:00 pm.
