ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Amber Harris had 21 points and 10 rebounds and No. 6 Xavier shot a season-best 66 percent, handling Saint Louis 92-60 for its 12th straight victory on Wednesday night.  

Ta'Shia Phillips added 20 points and seven rebounds for the Musketeers (22-2, 10-0 Atlantic 10), who've beaten half of their opponents during the winning streak by 20 or more points.  

The four-time defending Atlantic 10 champions have won 26 consecutive regular-season conference games and easily topped their previous best shooting percentage of 55.7 percent in the opener against South Carolina. 

Jacy Bradley had 13 points and reserve Ashley Hanley matched her career best with four 3-pointers and 12 points for Saint Louis (7-19, 1-10), which has lost six in a row by an average margin of 26 points and 12 of 13 overall.
