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.

Shields scored 28 points and Cloud 17 for the Hawks.
