Harvey Scores 23 In Exhibition Win Over Adelphi
Nov. 6, 2009
BALTIMORE - Senior guard Brett Harvey picked up where he finished last season, going 12-for-12 at the free throw line, scoring a game-high 23 points, and Loyola University Maryland defeated Adelphi University, 69-58, in exhibition men's basketball action Friday night in front of 923 fans at Reitz Arena.
Harvey led NCAA Division I in 2008-2009, making 91.0-percent of his free-throw attempts.
Against the Panthers, Harvey also went 5-of-9 from the field and had five rebounds and three steals.
Neither team opened with a strong shooting effort, but Loyola took an 18-16 lead with 7:49 to play in the first half on a Jawaan Wright layup.
After a Rob Johnson jumper for Adelphi 21 seconds later, the Greyhounds eight-straight points to take a double-digit lead, 29-19, on a pair of Olson free throws with 4:36 on the first-half clock.
The Panthers cut Loyola's 35-26 halftime advantage to five on a traditional 3-point play by David Akinyooye 1:50 into the second frame, but Walker made a basket in the paint and Harvey hit two free throws to push the Greyhounds back up by nine.
Brooks, a freshman forward, scored five points and had five rebounds.
Richard Byrd scored 18, and Akinyooye added 17, for Adelphi, but the Panthers shot just 32.7-percent from the field.
Loyola opens its regular season on Friday, November 13, when it hosts the University of Vermont at 7 p.m. in Reitz Arena.
