Sunday, Mar 4, 2012

PHILADELPHIA (AP)—Megan Van Tatenhove scored 27 points and Jessica Jenkins added 22 as No. 19 St. Bonaventure cruised past Saint Joseph’s 78-52 on Sunday in the Atlantic 10 Conference tournament’s semifinal round.

The Bonnies (29-2), the top seed in the tournament, advanced to the A-10 finals on Monday for the first time in program history. With the win, St. Bonaventure also extended its best-ever winning streak to 18 straight games.

This one was never really in doubt, as the Bonnies never trailed.

The Hawks stayed close early on, but Jenkins, who hit four 3-pointers in the game, knocked down a jumper and then a trey to turn a three-point Bonnies lead midway through the first half into 13-point halftime edge thanks to a 14-4 run.

The Bonnies then outscored the Hawks 45-32 in the second half to seal it.

Michelle Baker had 22 points to pace the fifth-seeded Hawks (21-10).
