CINCINNATI (Ticker) -- Taru Tuukkanen scored 23 points and Nicole Levandusky added 20 as 15th-ranked Xavier maintained sole possession of first place in the Atlantic 10 Conference with an 84-62 victory over Dayton.

Xavier (23-2, 13-1 Atlantic 10) moved one game ahead of George Washington and posted its 13th consecutive victory.

The trio of Tuukkanen, Levandusky and Jennifer Phillips was too much for Dayton to handle as they combined to outscore the Flyers' starting frontcourt, 62-15. The three players were a combined 25-of-41 from the field, with Phillips adding 19 points and seven rebounds.

Overall, Xavier shot 55 percent (34-of-62) while holding Dayton (13-12, 7-7) to 35 percent (26-of-74). Guard Reeta Piipari added 13 points and 11 rebounds for the Lady Musketeers.

Cyndi Stull scored 20 points off the bench and Chrissy Donovan added 10 for Dayton, which had a two-game winning streak snapped.

The Flyers stayed close early, closing to 34-33 on Stull's layup with 2:54 left in the first half but Xavier closed the period with six straight points. The Lady Musketeers broke it open early in the second half, building a 61-40 cushion on Levandusky's layup with 13:39 to play.
