Final Stats

WORCESTER, Mass. - Loyola University Maryland cut a one-time 14-point deficit to two multiple times in the second half, but the Greyhounds could not tie or take the lead, and College of the Holy Cross recorded a 60-51 Patrriot League win on Wednesday night at the Hart Center.

Holy Cross (12-9 overall, 6-3 Patriot League) took a 38-24 lead with 13:42 to play, and although the Greyhounds scored the next six points, the Crusaders got the lead back to 12 on two Dave Dudzinski free throws with 11:10 on the clock.

Loyola (9-11, 4-5) quickly got the margin to seven with a Jarred Jones basket and Tyler Hubbard 3-pointer, and later a traditional 3-point play by Dylon Cormier made it a 49-47 game with 4:05 remaining in regulation.

Cormier's free throw after making a layup capped a 23-11 run for the Greyhounds, but Holy Cross pushed the game back to a four-point margin, 51-47, over the next half-minute.

R.J. Williams made two at the line at 3:19, and Loyola was back within a pair, 51-49, with 3:19 left, but again the Greyhounds could not tie the game.

The teams traded 0-of-2 trips to the free-throw line on the next two possessions, but Anthony Thompson hit a driving layup on the Crusaders' following, and he was fouled. Thompson made the free throw, three of seven-consecutive Holy Cross points that put the game out of reach.

Among the culprits for the Greyhounds was poor second-half free-throw shooting. Loyola went 6-of-13 (46.2 percent) from the line after halftime and 10-of-19 in the game. Cormier led the Greyhounds with 15 points, but he made just 4-of-11 shots from the charity stripe.

 

 

Dudzinski led all players with a double-double, scoring 24 points and grabbing 12 rebounds.

Tyler Hubbard made his second-straight start and scored a season-high 13 points, hitting 4-of-6 from behind the 3-point arc. Nick Gorski added a career-high nine points, making all three of his field goals and both of his free throw attempts. He also had a team-high five rebounds.

Loyola, which wrapped up the first half of Patriot League play with the game at Holy Cross, returns to Reitz Arena on Saturday, February 1, for a 1 o'clock game against the U.S. Military Academy.
