Krusen's Record-Breaking Performance Not Enough For WBB At Bucknell
Feb. 19, 2014
LEWISBURG, Pa. - With two first-half three-point field goals, senior Nicole Krusen became the all-time leader in three’s made in Loyola University Maryland history. Despite the valiant effort, Krusen and the Greyhounds fell to Bucknell University on Wednesday night, 70-49, from the Sojka Pavilion.
Krusen passed Meredith Tolley (’07-’11) on the program list, making 151 three pointers thus far during her career. The senior guard also holds the school record for the most three’s in a single contest, hitting seven against the Manhattan College Jaspers on February 15, 2013.
For the second time this season, freshman Lauren Daugherty led the Greyhounds in points, scoring 11 and grabbing a team-best six rebounds. Junior Nai Brown recorded her 21st 10-plus point game, recording 10 points and two assists.
Bucknell (14-11, 9-6) led for all but 20 seconds following tipoff, after senior Nneka Offodile scored the first basket of the game.
The Greyhounds pulled within 11 on three separate occasions in the second half, but it was not enough to hold off the Bison, who shot 49-percent from the field.
With 11:53 remaining in the second half, sophomore Tiffany Padgett found Lisa Mirarchi open on the right wing. The freshman point guard took advantage of the opportunity and made a basket from behind the arc to pull the Greyhounds within 11, 43-32. A minute and a half later, Perry’s and-one opportunity provided Loyola a chance to pull within 11 once more. Thirty seconds later, Perry’s second trip to the line in under a minute gave the Greyhounds’ their third and final 11-point deficit, 48-37.
The Greyhounds got into foul trouble early in the second half and the Bison capitalized, scoring 11 of their final 22 points from the charity stripe.
Bucknell held a 36-28 advantage in rebounds, while the Greyhounds topped the Bison in blocks, 5-2. Offodile recorded a game-high 4 stops under the basket, and moved closer to passing Jina Mosley (’95-’99) for fifth place in career blocks at Loyola.
The Greyhounds return to action on Sunday, Feb. 23, to host Colgate for a 1 p.m. tipoff. Come before the game to participate in Loyola’s annual Women In Sports Day. Events are scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.
