DAYTON, Ohio - The Saint Joseph's women's basketball team had its four game win streak snapped by Dayton, 64-59, in overtime on Saturday afternoon at UD Arena.

In a tight game throughout, the Hawks battled back to force extra time as junior Chelsea Woods knocked down a free throw to tie the game at 50-50 with five seconds to play.

In the extra frame, the Hawks held a slim 57-55 lead with just under two minutes to play. From there though, Dayton (12-7, 6-1 A-10) would score the next eight points to open a 63-57 lead.

With the game knotted at 57, Dayton's Jenna Burdette knocked down her team's only three-pointer of the game to put the host Flyers ahead 60-57 with 1:14 to play.
