Pair Of Greyhound Greats Selected To MAAC 25th Anniversary Basketball Teams

Jan. 25, 2006

BALTIMORE, Md. - Former Loyola College basketball standouts Patty Stoffey and Mike Powell were selected as members of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference 25th Anniversary men's and women's basketball teams, it was announced recently by conference officials.

The MAAC recognized 25 athletes on each team, selecting 10 players for each of the league's first two decades and five players for the current decade.

Stoffey ended her Loyola career with 2,467 points, which are the most by any women's college basketball player ever in the state of Maryland. The first women's basketball player to have her jersey number retired at Evergreen, Stoffey led the Greyhounds to back-to-back conference titles and two appearances in the NCAA Tournament.

A three-time All-MAAC First Team selection, Stoffey was named as the conference's Player of the Year during her senior season.

The seventh-leading scorer in Loyola history, Powell played in 81 career games and scored 1,608 career points during his three-year career. He set the school's single-game record with seven three-point baskets against Penn State in 1997, a record that was broken by Andre Collins earlier this year.

A three-time All-MAAC pick, Powell holds the Loyola record for free throws made and attempted in a season. He made 207 of 255 shots from the foul line during the 1997-98 season.

Saint Peter's College led all schools with eight combined selections, including two-time national scoring champion Keydren Clark.
