Second-Half Rally Falls Short For Women's Basketball
Nov. 26, 2013
ITHACA, N.Y. - With only seven minutes remaining in the second half junior Kara Marshall tied the score, 39-39, but after 40 minutes of action the Loyola University Maryland women’s basketball team fell to Cornell University, 57-53, in Newman Arena Tuesday night.
Marshall led Loyola (1-5) with 12 points, while senior Nicole Krusen chipped in 11.
Marshall’s back-door glass points, with 7:21 remaining in regulation, knotted the score 39-39. Two minutes earlier, the junior guard pulled Loyola within two with a three-point field goal.
The Greyhounds connected on a season-high nine three pointers, as Marshall and Krusen accounted for three each.
Cornell (3-2) used an 8-0 run, with just under five minutes left to gain control of the lead for the remainder of the contest. Despite three sets of paint-points by junior Nai Brown and sophomore Tiffany Padgett, Cornell pulled out the four-point victory.
In the first half, Loyola led by as much as two points, coming off a Lisa Mirarchi three-point field goal three and a half minutes into the matchup, but Cornell countered with a 10-0 run. Krusen and senior Nneka Offodile halted the offensive drive, scoring five points combined, and pulling the Greyhounds within four with just under ten minutes remaining.
Loyola scored 12 of its first 15 points from three-point field goals.
The Greyhounds did not score again until 3:54 remaining in the half, when Marshall recorded her first three pointer of the contest. Cornell countered, taking its largest lead of the game, 38-15, from a Kerri Moran layup.
Cornell’s Allyson DiMagno led all players with 12 rebounds, while Offodile grabbed a team-high nine boards Tuesday evening.
Loyola steps off the court for the Thanksgiving holiday, before traveling to Saint Peter’s University on Sunday, Dec. 1. Tipoff is scheduled for 2 p.m.
