BALTIMORE, Md. - In the 2012-13 home opener, the Loyola University Maryland women's basketball team fell to the University of Maryland 88-45 in Reitz Arena. The Greyhounds fell to 0-2 for the season, as the Terrapins rose to 2-0 in non-conference play. Loyola was led by senior Katie Sheahin, who scored 19 points and made eight of her eight free throw attempts.
The number five ranked Maryland Terps were led by forward Tianna Hawkins, who scored 33 points, the most points scored by a player in one game since 2009, when Heather Stec of Siena scored 30 plus points against the Greyhounds.
Hawkins also finished with 13 rebounds, and tabbed her second consecutive double-double this season.
Despite Hawkins record, the Greyhounds came out strong posting the first points of the game, when Sheahin was fouled by Maryland's Laurin Mincy, sending the guard to the line for two. The momentum continued as junior Nicole Krusen, only a minute later, went from downtown to add three more to the board.
Sophomore Kara Marshall continued the Loyola lead, making her only three-point goal of the night, sending the Greyhound to their largest lead of the evening, 11-9.
"I thought we competed for about 22 minutes total," said head coach Joe Logan in a post-game press conference. "The first fifteen minutes were great, as we battled hard, but their "bigs" got away from us."
The Terrapin offense fired, as Maryland led by 16 entering the half.
The Greyhound defense came out strong in the second half, but could not hold off Hawkins and the Terps. Maryland out-shot Loyola 65-21, in the last twenty minutes. Despite Loyola's success from behind the arc in the first ten minutes, Maryland out-shot Loyola in three's during the second half of regulation.
Both teams went 78 percent from the free throw line, with Loyola making one hundred percent of the shots in the first half.
The Greyhounds travel across town to take on non-conference rival UMBC Saturday, Nov. 17, at 2 p.m.
