Final Stats

BALTIMORE - A balanced scoring effort led the Loyola University Maryland women's basketball team to their third-consecutive home victory against the Siena College Saints, 53-37, Saturday afternoon in Reitz Arena.

Loyola (9-12,4-6 MAAC) was led by Katie Sheahin with 12 points, while Alyssa Sutherland, Tiffany Padgett, and Nicole Krusen added nine points each.

The Greyhounds held the top Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference shooter, Lily Grenci to only two field goals and one shot from three-point range. The Saints' captain scored eight of her 13 points from the charity stripe.


 

 

In the first 20 minutes, Loyola gained control of the lead on four separate occasions, helped by three Nicole Krusen shots from downtown. The Greyhounds took the largest lead of the half, after a Tiffany Padgett layup, 28-21, with 1:17 left.

The green and grey entered the locker room with a two-point advantage, and came out strong after the half, holding Siena (8-13, 4-6) scoreless in the first five minutes.

The Saints did not score a field goal until the 12-minute mark, but the Greyhounds countered with a Padgett three-pointer from the baseline, giving Loyola an eight-point lead. Siena made three-field goals in the second half, while the remaining points accumulated from shots at the charity stripe.

Loyola took the first double-digit lead of the contest, 45-35, after a Nneka Offodile layup. A pair of Siena free throws cut the lead to eight, but a Sutherland rebound and Sheahin three-point field goal gave the Greyhounds the final push to the end.

Sutherland led the rebounding effort recording ten boards, while Sheahin led from the line, connecting on all six of her free throw attempts.

Loyola's defense tabbed four blocks and ten steals, to the Saints two and seven.

After a two-week home stretch, the Greyhounds travel to Niagara University for a 11 a.m. matchup Thursday, February 7.
