Defense Carries Men's Basketball To Win At Manhattan
Jan. 25, 2013
RIVERDALE, N.Y. - Loyola University Maryland blocked seven shots, had six steals and held host Manhattan College to just 14 made field goals, as the Greyhounds defeated the Jaspers, 51-41, in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action on Friday night in front of a national ESPNU television audience.
Erik Etherly led the Greyhounds with 12 points, tying for game-high honors, while Anthony Winbush scored nine and grabbed a team-best eight rebounds. Robert Olson and R.J. Williams each scored eight for Loyola (15-6 overall, 7-2 MAAC).
Manhattan (5-14, 3-6) took its only lead of the game 58 seconds into the second half when Emmy Andujar knocked down a 3-pointer after the Jaspers had three offensive rebounds on the possession.
Andujar, who had 12 points and a game-high 16 rebounds, gave the Jaspers a 26-25 lead with the basket at 19:02, but Robert Olson responded in kind with a three as the shot-clock slipped under five, and Loyola regained the lead 30 seconds later.
Olson's three sparked a 7-0 Loyola run with Winbush and Williams scoring on back-to-back possessions.
Manhattan got its deficit back to four on two occasions after Williams gave Loyola a 32-26 lead with 16:52 on the clock. Rhamel Brown scored with 13:43 remaining to make it 34-30 Loyola.
Brown's basket, however, was the last field goal for Manhattan for more than nine minutes. The Jaspers made three free throws during the stretch that saw Loyola grow its lead to 11, 44-33, when Julius Brooks had layups on consecutive possessions, both on offensive boards.
Shane Richards final broke the Manhattan field-goalless stretch with a three at 4:16.
Again, however, Olson responded with a three for Loyola and put Loyola back up 11.
The Jaspers made just 31.1-percent of their shots (14-of-45) and 8-of-19 free throws. In addition to Andujar's 12, Michael Alvarado, Donovan Kates and Brown each had seven.
Jordan Latham had three of Loyola's blocked shots, and Etherly swatted two. Olson finished with three steals, and Williams had two.
The Greyhounds continue MAAC action on Sunday, January 27, with a 12 noon game at home versus Iona College. The game is the first of a doubleheader with the Loyola women hosting the Gaels at 2:30 p.m.
