RICHMOND, Va. - Behind a game-high 21 points from junior Chelsea Woods, third seed Saint Joseph's topped sixth seed La Salle, 66-48, in the Quarterfinals of the 2017 Atlantic 10 Women's Basketball Championship on Friday evening at the Richmond Coliseum.

With the victory, the Hawks (17-13) advance to the Semifinals on Saturday where they will face seventh seed Duquesne at 1:30 p.m. The game will be nationally televised on the CBS Sports Network.

Down seven entering the third quarter, La Salle gained momentum from the start and quickly made it a 29-27 game.

The Hawks regrouped though and answered back with a 13-5 run to push their lead to 42-32 on a Woods layup at 1:32.

Ahead by 10 entering the fourth quarter, Saint Joseph's never allowed La Salle to get any closer as it picked up its third win over the Explorers this season.
