Q&A with Loyola coach G.G. Smith
The Baltimore Sun
June 20, 2013
By Matt Bracken

The differences between G.G. Smith and Jimmy Patsos are too numerous to list. Those dissimilarities, Smith says, are what made their working relationship so strong. But now that Smith has taken over as Loyola’s men’s basketballcoach, and Patsos has settled in at Siena, some things will inevitably change this year at Reitz Arena.

Charley Toomey couldn't help but reminisce May 31 when he flicked on the television to watch the Charlotte Hounds play the New York Lizards in a Major League Lacrosse matchup. As Hounds attackman Eric Lusby tied a game high with three goals and rookie Mike Sawyer added two scores in Charlotte's 13-7 victory, the Loyola coach thought back to when the duo led the Greyhounds' run to the 2012 national championship.

Wizards pre-draft workouts: Santa Clara’s Kevin Foster, Loyola’s Erik Etherly get a look

Erik Etherly approached his first NBA workout with a similar mentality, hoping that his versatility would intrigue the team that he grew up watching. After starring at Annandale High, the 6-foot-7 swingman averaged 15.7 points and 6.5 rebounds last season at Loyola.

So when the former Loyola forward worked out in front of Randy Wittman and the Washington Wizards coaching staff Wednesday morning at the Verizon Center, he tried to make the most of it.

April 28, 2013
By Edward Lee

Mike Sawyer never went anywhere. The Loyola senior attackman may have blended into the background because of the development of junior attackman Justin Ward (team-leading 28 assists and 54 points) and the play of the team's defense, but aside from sitting out two games due to an undisclosed injury, he toiled away.

Loyola men's lacrosse team ends 13-game losing streak to Johns Hopkins

The Loyola men's lacrosse team made sure overtime was not even a possibility Saturday. No. 7 Loyola took a lead with 1:29 left in the first quarter and never relinquished it en route to an 8-4 win over No. 13 Johns Hopkins before an announced 7,905 at Homewood Field in Baltimore. It was in stark contrast to last year, when the Greyhounds opened with a nearly 19-minute scoreless stretch and surrendered five goals in a 10-9 overtime setback to the Blue Jays.

Moving around has always been a big part of new Loyola basketball coach G.G. Smith's life. As a child whose father, Tubby, was a rising star in the college basketball coaching ranks, Smith spent time growing up in college towns like Columbia, S.C., and Lexington, Ky., as well as cities like Tulsa, Okla., and Richmond, Va. As an adult, Smith often took jobs based on where his wife, Lorie, was completing her post-graduate work as she built her career as a physician.

An act of kindness from Loyola to Newtown lacrosse

April 13, 2013
By Peter Schmuck

In a community ravaged by indescribable tragedy, every individual act of kindness, every unexpected moment of joy takes on a special significance that only those who are living with it can truly understand. So, when Loyola freshman Jason Crane organized a group of 14 players from the Greyhounds' defending NCAA champion men's lacrosse team to put on a youth clinic in Newtown, Conn., just three weeks after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, it may have seemed like a small gesture that would soon be lost among the big headlines and and even bigger political repercussions generated by such a horrific incident. Try telling that to the 101 kids and parents from Newtown Youth Lacrosse who lined up alongside the Greyhounds for pregame introductions on Senior Day on Saturday at Loyola's Ridley Athletic Complex.

Loyola promotes Smith to head basketball coach

By David Ginsburg

G.G. Smith was promoted to head basketball coach at Loyola (Md.) University on Friday following a six-year run as an assistant under Jimmy Patsos, who left earlier this month to take the top job at Siena. Smith, 36, is the son of longtime college coach Tubby Smith. At his introductory news conference, Smith told the crowd that he had not yet shared the news with his father. Smith's wife, Lorie, then handed him a cellphone. Tubby Smith, who was watching the session on the internet, offered his congratulations from the other end of the line.

G.G. Smith Named Loyola Men's Basketball Coach

April 12, 2013
By Steve Jones

G.G. Smith has been an assistant basketball coach for his entire adult life. His status changed April 12, when the 13-year assistant was named the head men's basketball coach at Loyola University. Smith, an assistant at Loyola since the 2007-08 season, became the 20th head coach in Loyola history. He was chosen to succeed Jimmy Patsos, who left Loyola after nine seasons on April 3 to take the head-coaching position at Siena College. During Smith's six years on Patsos' staff, he played a key role in transforming the Greyhounds from an also-ran in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference to a 20-win program the past two seasons.

It had been a whirlwind day for G.G. Smith, the new men's basketball coach at Loyola, when a phone call interrupted his introductory news conference Friday afternoon. That morning, the Loyola assistant had a final interview with the school's search committee. Around lunchtime, he was summoned to the home of Loyola president, Rev. Brian F. Linnane, who informed Smith that the job was his. The 36-year-old then made emotional phone calls to his wife and mother. But during his news conference at Reitz Arena, he was still waiting for his father to return his call. A minute after he joked that his father, Tubby Smith, who coached Kentucky to a national championship in 1998, would probably be the last person to get in touch with him, G.G.'s wife, Lorie, rushed to the stage and handed him a cell phone. Tubby Smith was watching the news conference on his computer.

Jimmy Patsos got what he wanted after all. "Three games in March," he said Sunday after Loyola beat Manhattan, 63-61, at Reitz Arena. Three games to win the upcoming Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championships and get the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament for the second year in a row. All he wanted was a shot at it. He doesn't ask for the sky, the moon and the stars above. But now Loyola, the little Catholic school at the corner of Charles St. and Cold Spring Lane, gets a chance to win three games in March and go to the Big Dance. Again.

Loyola University Maryland head coach Charley Toomey thought assistant Dan Chemotti made perfect sense when he talked him into playing No. 3 Maryland in between games against Towson and UMBC. And then Chemotti, the Greyhounds former defensive coordinator, took the head coaching job at Richmond. "I must have been crazy at time," said Toomey, laughing one day after No. 1 Loyola (2-0) beat Towson, 14-9. "But Duke does it every year, and John Danowski does a great job of preparing his team."

Defending NCAA champion Loyola (Md.) will play host to Maryland in a rematch of last year's national title game, which will be televised nationally on NBC Sports Network.

The Greyhounds currently hold the top spot in the Inside Lacrosse media poll, while the Terrapins snuck into the No. 1 spot in the USILA coaches' poll on Monday.

When the Loyola men's lacrosse team beat Maryland, 9-3, in the May heat of Foxborough, Mass., it won the university's first Division I championship in any sport. With an undergraduate enrollment of fewer than 4,000, Loyola became the smallest university to win the title. It also became the first Division I lacrosse champion since the current playoff format began in 1971 to come from an athletic department that did not also have a football team.

Loyola's Charley Toomey: That Special Coach

The irony was not lost on Joe Boylan during that final Monday in May 2012. Twenty-two years ago to the day, he had been sitting in the stands at Rutgers University, watching an All-American goaltender from Loyola College in Maryland surrender 18 goals as Syracuse University routed the Greyhounds, 21-9, to claim the 1990 NCAA Division I men's lacrosse championship. But, despite the result, there was something about the feisty, determined netminder that resonated with Boylan. Something so unique, so fascinating, that 15 years later, Boylan, then the athletic director at Loyola, hired that former Greyhounds goalie to restore his alma mater to greatness.

To the victors go the spoils, but those accolades mean little to the Loyola men's lacrosse team. In the aftermath of the Greyhounds' 9-3 victory over Maryland in last May's NCAA tournament final, the program turned down a few rewards associated with bringing home the university's first Division I national championship. Coach Charley Toomey said the team declined an invitation in June to ring the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange. And when a few players traveled to Florida with duffel bags printed with "2012 National Champions" for an exhibition against Team USA earlier this month, they were admonished by teammates and coaches alike.

Loyola coach Charley Toomey had never seen his players give such rapt attention to a speaker. "The only problem was that we had to tone our guys down after he was done," Toomey recalled. "We didn't want them to run through a wall the Wednesday before the game."Toomey saw in Lewis a rare and genuine ability to connect, one that would work as well in sales as in sports. The Greyhounds went on to win the national title. But Toomey is now dealing with the same issue the Ravens will confront post-Lewis -- how to replace J.P. Dalton, the captain who kept everyone else on track last season. He said such leadership is a tangible asset.
