BALTIMORE - The Loyola University Maryland men's basketball team added St. Bonaventure to its 2011-2012 schedule on Thursday, scheduling a game for Sunday, December 18, on the Bonnies' home court in Southwestern New York.
Loyola will meet the Bonnies for the eighth time in series history. It will be the first meeting between the programs since January 27, 1975.
Earlier this week, St. Bonaventure was picked to finish fourth in the Atlantic 10. Andrew Nicholson was named to the Preseason All-Atlantic 10 First Team after earning First Team honors in 2010-2011 when he averaged 20.8 points per game to help St. Bonaventure finish 16-15.
The game gives the Greyhounds 30, including the November 4 exhibition contest at home against Indiana University of Pennsylvania, during the season.
Following the exhibition game, Loyola will open the regular season on Friday, November 11, at Wake Forest. The 7 o'clock game will be broadcast on ESPN3.
