11/03/2013 – The women's basketball team defeated Huntington University to notch their second consecutive win to start the season. The 64-48 setback was the opening game for the host Foresters.
The Saints continued to impress through the early portion of their schedule as Aquinas' defense keyed the road win. Coach Nash's crew limited Huntington to 34% shooting and created 17 turnovers. On the flip side the Saints converted 47% of their attempts and out rebounded the Foresters 40-32.

The Saints also used an eleven point performance from Danielle Lollo and a 14 rebound effort from Allsion Heberlein to secure the victory.
