Baltimore, Md. - The men's basketball team found out its next destination of games in the 2008 NIT Season Tip-Off Wednesday afternoon. The Greyhounds will face James Madison on Monday and then Stephen Curry and host Davidson on Tuesday.
Loyola is coming off one of the toughest stretches that any team in the country will face this regular season after playing four games in five days against two defending conference champions who have been picked to repeat in their respective leagues(Mount St. Mary's [NEC], Cornell [Ivy]), a team that lost in their conference title game (Tennessee State [OVC]) and at a team from the Atlantic Coast Conference (Boston College).
The Greyhounds and Dukes will play the first game of a doubleheader Monday beginning at 5:45 with Davidson hosting Florida Atlantic at 8. Matchups for Tuesday's twinbill are James Madison and Owls at 5:45 pm in the first game and Loyola against the Wildcats in the nightcap.
