BALTIMORE - Fresh off its first postseason victory in school Division I history, the Loyola University Maryland men's basketball team will host Kent State University on Sunday, March 24, in the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament Second Round in Reitz Arena.

Tickets for the game can be purchased online at LoyolaGreyhounds.com/Tickets or by calling 410-617-1420.

The Greyhounds (22-11 overall) defeated Boston Unviersity, 70-63, on Tuesday night in the first round after trailing by 15 points in the second half.

Kent State advanced to the second round with a 73-71 victory last night over Fairfield University. Randal Holt, who led the Golden Flashes with 18 points, scored on a driving layup with three seconds remaining to provide the winning margin.

The Golden Flashes finished third in the Mid-American Conference East Division during the regular season and with their win over the Stags, they enter the second round game with a 21-13 overall record.

Sunday will be the teams' third meeting in series history. Loyola and Kent State played a home-and-home series in 1997-1998 and 1998-1999 with the Golden Flashes winning both contests.
