Xavier Wins Women's Basketball Shootout

CINCINNATI (AP) - Amber Harris had 20 points and 12 rebounds to lead No. 4 Xavier to a 69-61 win over rival Cincinnati on Sunday, extending the Musketeers' perfect start to a program-record eight games.

Tyeasha Moss scored 14 points and senior Megan Askew had a career-high 12, all in the first half, to go along with Harris' 44th career double-double. Ta'Shia Phillips also scored 12.

Xavier (8-0) also beat Cincinnati last season to set the previous program record for best start at 7-0. The Musketeers have won 23 consecutive regular-season games dating to a home loss last Dec. 30 to LSU.

Shareese Ulis scored 24 points, one short of matching her career high, to lead the Bearcats (5-2). Bjonee Reaves and Tiffany Turner each scored 10 for Cincinnati, losers of two straight.
