Men's Basketball to Visit American Monday

Nov. 19, 2006

Baltimore, Md. - Loyola travels south on I-95 for a local matchup against the American Eagles from the Patriot League. The Greyhounds, who played their first three games over a span of five days, will see game action for the first time in six days. After tonight, Loyola will be off for nine days and then finally play its home opener when it hosts Delaware in a game regionally telecast on MASN. The Greyhounds won their second straight in their last time out with a hard-fought 69-56 win at Maryland-Baltimore County. This will be Loyola's second straight road game with the first two games being contested on a neutral court. American won its first two games, but dropped a 61-50 game at Richmond on Friday to drop the Eagles' record to 2-1 on the season, the same as Loyola's.

The matchup will be the 83rd in this long-running series, with each team having won 41 times. Loyola snapped a three-game losing streak to the Eagles with a 68-60 victory at Reitz Arena last season.

Game time is 7:30 p.m. and all the action can be heard on with Rich Gainer and Mark Cittarella.
