A 17-0 run to start the game sent the Ashland University women's basketball team to their 21st win of the season against no losses, as the #1 ranked AU Eagles slayed the Dragons of Tiffin University 87-47, for their 46th consecutive regular season win.   The Eagles shot 53% from the field connecting on ten of 22 three pointers.  AU's Taylor Woods showed the way with 22 points hitting six three balls.  Four other Ashland players hit double figures with Alyssa Miller getting 13, Diava Gerbec 12, Lindsay Tenyak 11 and Ashley Dorner 10. 

Tiffin was led by Macy Byrd with 14.  Three Dragon players had six Jessica Harris, Melissa Gilliland and Mary Kate Campbell.  The loss drops Tiffin to 9-9 overall and 6-8 in GLIAC play.  Ashland University improves to 21-0 in all games and 14-0 in conference play.  The win by the Eagles was their 34th straight at home and 35th straight in the GLIAC.  The AU ladies will not be back on the floor again until Saturday, February 2, when they host Lake Erie College at Kates Gymnasium.

Of note Ashland's Daiva Gerbec's 12 points put the senior right at 1,000 points in her career.  She joins Eagle teammate Kari Daugherty who reached the milestone earlier this season.
