The Lady Knights keep making history. Gannon narrowly defeated Tusculum 70-66 Tuesday night in a back-and-forth game that kept Gannon fans on the edge of their seats. With the win, the women’s basketball team broke the NCAA Division II record for most overall wins in a season. The No. 1 Lady Knights also secured the NCAA Division II record for consecutive victories (37) in a single season.
