The Morehead State women's basketball team made it two straight wins with a lopsided victory over Div. III Mount St. Jospeh (Ohio.) at Johnson Arena, 117-53. The 64-point victory is the largest in MSU history and the Eagles have now scored 100-plus points in three of five games.

The win moves the Eagles record to 3-2.

"We have great balance right now, there probably isn't too many teams in the country who have six players averaging double digit points per game," said Head Coach Greg Todd.
