The St. Ambrose University women's basketball season is only a week old and has a signature win.

The NAIA's 10th-ranked Queen Bees knocked off No.2 Morningside 75-72 in overtime Saturday at Lee Lohman Arena.

The Bees' Annie Smith scored a career high 27 points on 8-of-13 shooting from the field and 11-of-14 from the free-throw line to go with 12 rebounds.

Former Alleman star Michelle Charvat had a double-double of 13 points and 15 boards, and Jane Schiffler tallied 15 points leading the team with three 3s.

SAU was trailing 66-64 with 2:09 left in the regulation, when Smith took control against the perennial powerhouse Mustangs. The former Davenport Assumption prep, tied the game with a jumper in the paint, and swatted Morningside's leading scorer, Chelsie Trask (21 points), with 10 seconds remaining to force overtime.

Trailing 69-67 with 2:26 remaining, Schiffler buried a key 3-pointer, and Smith scored the Queen Bees' next five points to help St. Ambrose close out the Mustangs.

After trailing 42-30 at halftime, the Bees defense was stellar in the second half, forcing the Mustangs to shoot a woeful 6-for-33, while St. Amrbose started the second half on a 16-3 run.

- Buresh off to hot collegiate start: Former Annawan prep Kelly Buresh made her Quincy University (1-0) debut in the Lady Hawks 91-68 win against Missouri Western (0-1). In just 15 minutes of floor time, Buresh scored 15 points and added four rebounds in a reserve role.
