Feb 2, 2011 - 3:04 AM Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - Ta'Shia Phillips had 21 points and 10 rebounds as No. 7 Xavier took a 102-51 win over La Salle.

Katie Rutan had 15 points, Tyeasha Moss added 13 points and five assists while Shatyra Hawkes added 12 points and five helpers for the Musketeers (18-2, 7-0 Atlantic 10), who have won eight straight since dropping games at Duke and Stanford prior to the new year.

Xavier matched the 2000-01 squad for the best start in school history and also eclipsed the 100-point mark for the first time since December 9, 2001, a triple-overtime contest against Toledo.

Ashley Gale had 17 points and five assists while Ebonee Jones added 16 points and six boards for the Explorers (6-16, 2-5), who failed to build on their win over George Washington this past Saturday.

Xavier shot 60.5 percent from the field in the first half to build a 62-21 lead at the break and never looked back.
