Women's Basketball Drops Wednesday Night Contest To Lafayette
Feb. 12, 2014
BALTIMORE - Lafayette College never trailed in the second half, defeating Loyola University Maryland, 58-45, from Reitz Arena on Wednesday night.
Both teams shot just over 30-percent from the field, but the Leopards (13-11, 7-6 Patriot League) outrebounded Loyola (5-19, 2-11), 55-29, grabbing an impressive 19 offensive boards.
Both teams traded baskets in the first six minutes of action, as the score was tied, 7-7, going into the first media timeout. Lafayette quickly pulled ahead, hitting two three-point field goals in the next three minutes. The Leopards obtained their first double-digit lead, 17-7, and eventually led by as much as 13 with three and a half minutes remaining in the first half.
The Greyhounds, however, used a 9-0 run to cut the deficit to four, 26-22, sparked by a Brown jumper from behind the arc. Lafayette responded, connecting on five last-minute points to enter the locker room with a 31-22 advantage.
Senior Nicole Krusen capped off a 9-0 run 38-35, seven minutes into the second half, hitting her lone three-point field goal of the night. The offensive rally by the Greyhounds didn’t last long, as Lafayette scored its next four-unanswered points from the charity stripe.
The Greyhounds quickly found themselves in foul trouble early in the second half, sending the Leopards to the line nine times at the under eight media timeout. Lafayette went to the charity stripe a total of 22 times during the contest, 17 more than the Greyhounds.
Following the timeout, three of Loyola’s final four baskets were from the paint. Brown, Brittany Butler and Krusen hit layups in the final four minutes of action, contributing to six of the Greyhounds’ 26 paint points.
Loyola held a 26-14 advantage in the paint, while scoring 24 points off the Leopards 24 turnovers.
Emily Homan and Danielle Fiacco both contributed double-doubles for Lafayette, combining for 24 of the team’s 55 rebounds.
Loyola will be back in action on Saturday when it heads to Boston University for a 1 p.m. contest.
