Latham Scores Career-High, But Fla. Gulf Coast Tops Men's Hoops
Dec. 1, 2012
FORT MYERS, Fla. - Jordan Latham scored a career-high 17 points to lead all scorers, but Loyola University Maryland had its six-game winning streak snapped on Saturday night as Florida Gulf Coast University beat the visiting Greyhounds, 65-50, at Alico Arena.
Latham made 7-of-10 shots form the field and raced past his previous high of nine in less than 10-minutes, 30-seconds of action, and he finished with 14 in the first half.
The rest of the team, however, made just 13-of-50 shots (26-percent), and Loyola committed 17 turnovers that led to 19 points for Florida Gulf Coast.
Loyola (7-2 overall) never led in the game, but after trailing by eight less than eight minutes in, the Greyhounds got within three, 21-18, on a Latham layup at 9:37.
The Eagles (5-3) stretched their advantage back to nine, 32-23, on an Eric McKnight dunk 2:22 before the break. It was an eight-point lead at halftime for Florida Gulf Coast, but Bernard Thompson scored 38 seconds in to push the lead to double digits.
Dylon Cormier scored on a layup for Loyola at 18:15, but that was the last time Loyola with trail by less than 10. The Eagles scored the next eight points and went up 44-28 on two Sherwood Brown free throws at 16:02.
Brown led Florida Gulf Coast with 14 points, while Thompson had 13, and Brett Comer scored 10.
Cormier scored 12 points and had nine rebounds, tying his career-high. Robert Olson added 10 for the Greyhounds.
Loyola opens Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action on Wednesday, December 5, when it hosts Niagara University at 7:30 p.m.
