Standing at 8-1 on the season, Saint Joseph's opened Big 5 play with a 2-0 mark after topping Temple and Villanova. Last Wednesday versus the Owls, the Hawks used a 12-2 run early in the second half to break a 36-36 tie with Temple and pull away for a 73-53 victory. In an equally tight game at Villanova on Saturday, Saint Joseph's took a one-point lead with less than two minutes to go and got a key basket from Cloud and two strong defensive stops to earn a 63-60 win.

Averaging 17.5 points, 10.5 assists and 6.5 rebounds per game las t week, Cloud set new career-highs for points and matched her single-game mark for assists. At Temple on Wednesday, Cloud helped SJU win its first game at Temple since the 2002-03 season as she tallied a career-best 21 points and matched her career-high with 13 assists to go with six rebounds.
