• Loyola completed its 45th season as a women's basketball program and its 35th year of competition as an NCAA Division I program. Prior to 1981, the Greyhounds competed in the Mid-Atlantic Region of the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW).
• The 2013-14 season was Loyola's inaugural year as a member of the Patriot League.
• Prior to joining the League, Loyola was a member of the Northeast Conference for nine seasons (1980-89), before joining the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference in 1989. The Greyhounds posted an overall record of 196-205 in MAAC games and won two MAAC Championships, in 1993 and 1994.

• For the first time since the 2010-11 season, Loyola played for a conference title after winning back-to-back Patriot League Championship games against Navy and Bucknell in the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds, respectively.
• The Greyhounds finished 16-16 on the year, after completing a tough non-conference schedule that included two NCAA Tournament teams, two Women's National Invitation Tournament participants and two programs that participated in the Women's Basketball Invitational.
• While Loyola won a school-record 11 Patriot League games, the Greyhounds also earned the No. 3 seed in the conference championships and tied the biggest turnaround from a previous season for any team in Patriot League women's basketball history.
• The Greyhounds swept five League foes and landed on SportsCenter Top 10 three times throughout the season, including Monday March 7, following their 44-42 win over sixth-seeded Navy in the quarterfinal round of the Patriot League Championships.
• Loyola went on to upset No. 2 Bucknell, the regular-season co-champion, in the semifinals. The 65-53 victory was the first win over the Bison since joining the Patriot League in 2013-14.
• Heading into the championship game, the Greyhounds put together six-straight victories for the first time since the 2011-12 season when Loyola won six-consecutive MAAC games through the months of January and February.
 Seniors Colleen Marshall and Jeneh Perry were named to All-Patriot League Teams at the close of the regular season. Marshall garnered spots on both the first team and All-Defensive Team, while Perry was voted to the League's third team.
• Marshall, a unanimous first-team selection, became Loyola's first-ever All-Patriot League First Team honoree and the first Greyhound to earn first-team honors since 2012. She was also the only League player to earn a spot on the first team and the defensive team after picking up All-Patriot League Second Team accolades last season.
• Perry, making her first-ever appearance on an all-League team, became Loyola's first forward to earn an all-conference honor since Lauren Troupe (2002-06) garnered All-MAAC First Team accolades in 2005-06.
• Marshall and sophomore Bri Betz-White were named to the all-tournament team for their play in getting Loyola to the championship game.
