Last Time Out For St. Bonaventure:
• The St. Bonaventure women's basketball team (14-12, 4-9 A-10) erased a 20-point deficit to stun the Saint Louis Billikens (13-13, 6-7 A-10) on Wednesday night, by a score of 57-55.
• Wednesday's victory is the largest comeback by the Bonnies since last season when they rallied back from 22 points to shock Duquesne.
• The Bonnies were paced by junior forward Katie Healy as the Lancaster, N.Y. native recorded her fourth double-double of the season with 20 points and 15 rebounds. Healy went 8-14 from the field and 4-8 from the line. Also contributing for the Brown and White was Nyla Rueter and Hannah Little.

• Coming off the bench was Matea Britvar, who went 1-2 from the field, but she contributed in a way that doesn't appear on the stat sheet, which was her effort on defense. Britvar appeared for 10 minutes in the second half and helped the Bonnies shut down the Billikens' offense.
