Patsos Records 100th Win in 73-63 Triumph At UMBC
Nov. 17, 2011
CATONSVILLE, Md. - Loyola University Maryland Head Coach Jimmy Patsos won his 100th career game on Thursday night as the Greyhounds defeated cross-town rival UMBC, 73-63, at the Retrievers Activity Center Arena.
Patsos, who took over a team that was 1-27 in 2002-2003, is in his eighth year at the helm of the Greyhounds' program.
Erik Etherly scored a career-high 27 points and led all players with 10 rebounds for the Greyhounds (2-1 overall).
"I could not have gotten to 100 wins without the players," Patsos said. "This program has grown with the caliber of players that we have."
UMBC (0-3) took a three-point lead, 18-15, on a Brian Neller 3-pointer with 12-minutes, 58-seconds to play in the first half.
Shane Walker, however, scored the next four points of the game for Loyola, and after Chandler Thomas gave the Retrievers a one-point advantage at 10:41, a thunderous Etherly dunk from the left side put Loyola in front for good.
Justin Drummond posted smaller UMBC players up late in the first half, scoring the frame's final four points to give the Greyhounds a 35-27 lead going into the locker room.
UMBC cut the Loyola cushion to four when Adam Satchell and Nate Basalyga scored on the first two possessions out of halftime.
Dylon Cormier made two free throws for the Greyhounds on the possession after Basalyga's bucket, sparking a 10-0 Loyola run that culminated with two Etherly free throws at 16:39, pushing the Greyhounds out to a 46-31 advantage.
After he blocked a shot and picked up one of his 10 rebounds, Etherly converted a lay-up in transition with 11:08 to go in regulation, making it 51-34 Loyola.
The Retrievers would slowly chip away at the Greyhounds' lead, making it a 10-point game with 4:38 on a traditional 3-point play by Will Wise.
Neller made a three two possessions later, one of his seven in the game as he matched Etherly's 27 points, with 2:44 on the clock, pulling the Retrievers within seven, 61-54.
Cormier made four free throws in a row for the Greyhounds to push the advantage back to 11.
Neller made 1-of-2 for UMBC on the Retrievers' next trip down the court, but Anthony Winbush converted on a pair from the charity stripe for Loyola with 41 ticks on the clock.
Cormier finished with 20 points, making 15-of-17 free throws. His 15 free throws made are tied for sixth-most in school single-game history.
Shane Walker added 12 for the Greyhounds, and Drummond had nine. Cormier and Winbush each had three steals for the Greyhounds
Etherly's 27 points eclipsed the 19 he scored last February 25 at Niagara.
The Greyhounds continue their road swing on Sunday when they travel to Durham, N.H., to take on the University of New Hampshire at 1 o'clock.
