At 12:40, Sutherland hit her second jumper of the night, sparking the momentum for the Greyhounds. Loyola capitalized on a 9-0 run with seven minutes left in the first half.
Nicole Krusen recorded her elevnth three-pointer of the season, as Sheahin grabbed a board with 5:24 left in the half and sent the Greyhound ball to Sutherland. The senior forward connected with Krusen from the left wing, elevating Loyola's lead 16-6.
Moments later, Sutherland would record the team's fourth fast break, posting two more points for the Greyhounds.
