BALTIMORE - Tyler Hubbard led four Loyola University Maryland players in double figures with 14 points, and the Greyhounds used a 18-2 second-half run to pull away for a 71-49 exhibition win over Bridgewater (Virginia) College on Thursday night in Reitz Arena.
Denzel Brito helped Loyola posted 18 assisted with just 11 turnovers, contributing seven helpers without a miscue.
The Eagles closed to within three, 40-37, on an Aaron Adams free throw with 13:05 left in regulation, but an Andre Walker layup was the first of seven-straight Loyola points that put the Greyhounds' advantage back into double figures, 47-37.
An Adams basket momentarily stopped the Loyola run, but the Greyhounds then scored 11 unanswered. Six of the points during the 11-0 stretch came on traditional 3-point plays by Gregory with layups and free throws after drawing fouls.
Gregory's second of that variety made it 58-39 Loyola with 6:37 left on the clock.
The Greyhounds open their regular season in eight days when they travel to Lubbock, Texas, for a Friday, Nov. 14, date with Texas Tech University. Loyola returns to Retiz Arena on Sunday, Nov. 16, for a 4 o'clock tip-off against Cornell University.
