UNDATED (21 Alive) - With a 54-0 win over Concordia (MI) on Saturday, Saint Francis has moved back into the NAIA Coaches' Top 25 Top 10 at No. 8.

This is the 177th consecutive Top 25 selection for the Cougar program, which is its 16th season. USF was No. 10 last week.

This is the 150th time in 177 polls that USF has been in the top 10. Taylor, a double-overtime loser to Marian last week, is the ninth challenge for USF this Saturday in Upland.

Saint Francis senior Skylarr Shurn is Crossroads League women's basketball Player of the Week, the first for 2013-14.

This is the second time Shurn, a 5-foot-7 guard, has been named in two seasons with USF.

Shurn scored 20 of her 28 points against NAIA Division I No. 11-ranked Shawnee State in the second half to rally USF from a 45-35 halftime deficit to a 98-91 win in their season-opening game Friday night.

It was a career scoring best at USF for Shurn in the first game of the season.

Shurn averaged 23 points per game, 6.0 rebounds per game, 3.5 assists per game, and 2.0 steals per game on the week, while shooting .429 from the field and .882 from the free throw line.
