PUC halts Cougars women’s win streak
One week later, another string got snapped.
St. Xavier University’s men’s basketball team saw a 17-game unbeaten streak come to an end on Feb. 1, when Cardinal Stritch scored its second victory of the year over the Cougars. SXU’s women, however, cleared the Stritch hurdle that same day and brought with them into last week a lengthy win skein of their own.
Undefeated since the end of November, the female Cougars’ 16-game run of excellence might have been enough to psychologically overwhelm some foes. Purdue University Calumet players, however, were not fazed by NAIA Division II No. 6-ranked SXU.
