Thanks to its 101-84 win on Thursday (Feb. 1) night at Wayne State, the top-ranked Ashland University women's basketball team not only clinched a spot in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Tournament with seven regular-season games to play, but the Eagles also sit alone atop the D-II basketball record book with their 58th consecutive victory.

The previous record was 57 straight wins, set by Winona State's Warriors from Jan. 13, 2006-March 22, 2007.

In winning the matchup of the top two teams in the GLIAC South Division, the Eagles improve to 21-0 overall and 13-0 in the conference. Ashland's magic number for clinching its third consecutive South title and seventh in the last eight seasons is down to four.
