ASHLAND -- The SOU women's basketball team is no stranger to success. After winning their 11th straight game Sunday, the 10th-ranked Raiders are now 18-1 this season, the third straight year they've won 18 of their first 19 games. 

Defense set the tone early as the Raiders pressed the Eagles and turned them over consistently. The steady and aggressive attack helped the Raiders to a 30-0 advantage in fastbreak points. That would prove to be the difference as SOU won 96-67.

Remi Mejia, who scored 22 points on Saturday, shined again on Sunday, pouring in 19 points to go along with nine assists. 

Next up for the Raiders is Multnomah, who is 1-21 this season. Their only win came in their most recent game, a 79-78 win over Walla Walla. That will be the next step for SOU as the 10th-ranked team in the country tries to continue its climb in the Cascade Collegiate Conference standings.
