Dec. 11, 2004

Box Score

Baltimore, Md. - Loyola's largest crowd of the season came out to see the state of Maryland's longest college basketball rivalry on Saturday afternoon at Reitz Arena. Mount St. Mary's used pin-point accuracy from three-point range to build a lead and held on to defeat the Greyhounds 69-55 in front of 2,474 fans.

Landy Thompson got Mount St. Mary's off to a quick start with 12 of the team's first 16 points as the Mountaineers opened up a 16-8 lead. Loyola rallied with the game's next eight points to tie the score at 16-16. The Mount, staying red-hot from three-point range, would answer with 13 of the next 16 points and went into the halftime lockeroom with a 38-26 lead on 7-of-10 shooting from beyond the arc.

Shane James cut the Loyola deficit to seven points with a pair of aggressive moves to start the second half. The Mountaineers pulled ahead again and maintained a comfortable lead until freshman Freddie Stanback nailed a three-pointer to cut the lead to 53-47 with six minutes remaining in regulation.

Senior Bernard Allen would make is a four-point game (53-49) with a pair of free throws at 5:33. Freshman Rashaud Nixon followed an Allen miss to make it 54-51, causing the Reitz Arena crowd to erupt.

The Mount had the final answer, however, and calmed the Loyola faithful with a 7-0 run. The Greyhounds see their one-game winning streak come to an end and fall to 1-6 overall while Mount St. Mary's improves to 3-3 on the year.

Sean Corrigan led Loyola with 11 points while Stanback finished with 10. Thompson led the Mount and all scorers with 24 points. The Mountaineers now lead the all-time series 93-66.

 

 

The Greyhounds return to action on December 21 at local rival UMBC.
