Etherly's 25 Spurs Men's Basketball To Win Over Siena
Feb. 8, 2013
BALTIMORE - Erik Etherly scored a season-high 25 points, and Robert Olson logged his first career double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds, as Loyola University Maryland pulled away in the second half for a 63-51 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference victory over visiting Siena College.
Etherly made 9-of-14 baskets, while Olson's 10 rebounds were a career-high in front of a sold-out Reitz Arena and national television audience on ESPNU.
Siena (6-18 overall, 4-9 MAAC) took their third lead of the game, 37-36, on a Rob Poole jumper at 11:14, but on the next Loyola possession, Ethelry slipped a pass to Julius Brooks on the right block, and Brooks spun on his defender, making a hook shot to put the Greyhounds (17-8, 9-4) up for good.
Brooks' basket spurred a 10-0 Loyola run that saw Olson hit a three and a free throw, and Etherly put in a fast-break dunk off an Olson assist after the forward made two free throws on the previous possession.
Etherly's dunk in transition with 9:34 on the clock gave the Greyhounds a 46-37 lead.
A Poole three from the left side pulled Siena within six with just over eight minutes left, but Loyola scored the next seven, and a Dylon Cormier twisting layup at 6:17 put the Greyhounds up by double figures for the rest of the game.
Cormier finished with 11 points, and he led all players with four steals.
The Greyhounds had a season-high of 12 steals, contributing to 19 Siena turnovers. Loyola scored 10 fast-break points, aided by the steals.
Loyola led by as many as nine in the first half, but Siena chipped away to get within a point before the Greyhounds went up three at halftime. The Saints had just three leads in the game, none by more than two points.
The Greyhounds continue MAAC action on Sunday afternoon with a 2 o'clock game at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
