Women's Basketball Falls to Saint Peter's, 60-46
Jan. 23, 2004
JERSEY CITY, NJ - Despite holding Saint Peter's scoreless for nearly the first five minutes of the first half and the first seven of the second, Loyola fell to the Pea Hens 60-46 in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference battle for second place Friday night at the Yantelli Center. The Greyhounds fall to 8-8 overall with the loss and 4-3 in the conference while SPC improved to 10-6 and 5-2.
The Greyhounds opened Friday's contest with the first three baskets and playing tenacious defense to hold the Pea Hens scoreless until 14:53. The two teams exchanged baskets for the next five minutes before Saint Peter's Lindsay Gonzalez hit a three-pointer for a 13-10 Pea Hens lead. Saint Peter's built up as much as a 17 point lead in the next 10 minutes; holding a 33-18 advantage at the half way mark.
Loyola looked like a team on a mission in the second half. Jill Glessner scored five points in a 7-0 Greyhound run, cutting the SPC lead to nine. Kristen Hood hit two free-throws for the Pea Hens's first points in the second half at 13:06 but it wasn't until the 12 minute mark that Loyola's defense allowed a basket.
A great defensive play by Robbyn Poole with the pass to Katie Scherle cut Saint Peter's lead to just one for a 39-38 score at 8:43. The two squads exchanged baskets before Gonzalez hit her third three-pointer of the night at 1:26 to seal the victory.
Loyola was plagued by fouls (21) and poor free-throw shooting (7-for-14) late in the second half.
The Greyhounds were lead by Scherle with 11 points and game-high nine rebounds. She was followed by Glessner with nine points.
Gonzalez led the Pea Hens with 19 points, six rebounds, five assists and three steals. Elyse Siciliano came off the bench to score 11 points.
Loyola will travel to Fairfield University on Sunday, Jan. 25 for a 3:30 game. Sunday's game is a part of a double header with the men's team.
