WBB Finishes Regular Season With Win Over Saint Peter's
March 3, 2013
JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Katie Sheahin and Nicole Krusen extended a four-point first half lead, to lead the Greyhounds to a strong second half, as Loyola University Maryland won its first road conference game against the Saint Peter's Peacocks, 57-45, in the final regular-season conference matchup of the season.
Sheahin and Krusen combined for the first nine points of the second half, giving Loyola a 13-point lead that the Greyhounds would not relinquish during the final 20 minutes.
Sheahin ended her regular-season career with a game-high 23 points. The senior guard recorded her thirteenth 20-plus point game against the Peacocks. Sheahin tied her career-best shooting nine shots from the floor, while tying a season-best three baskets from behind the arc. Krusen added eight points for the Greyhounds, going 2-2 from the free throw line.
Loyola (12-17, 7-11 MAAC) held the Peacocks to only six points in the first nine minutes of second half action. Saint Peter's Jesika Holmes scored four of the six points, and recorded a team-high 18 points Sunday evening. Teammate Aziza May added 10 points for the Peacocks.
The Greyhounds led by as much as 16 points after an Alyssa Sutherland layup, 51-35, with just under five minutes remaining in the second half. Saint Peter's cut the defecit to 11, but a five-point play by Sheahin gave Loyola another 16-point lead.
The Peacocks (2-27, 2-16) led by as much as six points in the first ten minutes of action, but a Sheahin jumper gave Loyola its first lead of the contest. A Holmes layup, turned the ball game back to Saint Peter's, but Tiffany Padgett countered with her own layup to regain the Greyhound lead. The Peacocks knotted the score, 23-23, but Loyola took control of the lead for the remainder of the contest with a Sutherland layup just minutes before halftime.
The Greyhounds shot 44 percent from the field, while holding the Peacocks to only 16 percent of their shots from three-point range.
Padgett led the bench with six points, while sophomore Steph Smith led the bench in rebounds, grabbing eight boards.
Nneka Offodile led the team in blocks, recording two stops for the green and grey.
The Greyhounds locked in an eighth-place seed for the 2013 MAAC Tournament. Loyola will take on the Manhattan College Jaspers, Thursday, March 7 at 2 p.m. in the MassMutual Center.
