Women's Basketball Starts Practice Tonight

Oct. 3, 2010

The Loyola University Maryland women's basketball team got underway tonight at 8 o'clock with the first official practice.

"We feel really good," said Graduate Student Erica DiClemente. "We are all ready to compete and get prepared for a new season.

The Greyhounds will open their season Friday, November 12, on the road against West Virginia.

"It is going to be a big game," said DiClemente. "We think it will be a great start to our season, let us know exactly what we need to work on and give us high hopes."

Last year, Loyola ended the season, 14-16, after the Greyhounds lost, 70-56, to Fairfield in the quarterfinal round at the 2010 Citizens Bank Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championships at the Times Union Center, in Albany, N.Y.
