PITTSBURGH, Penn. - Despite a back-and-forth first half, the Loyola University Maryland women’s basketball team fell to the University of Pittsburgh, 57-47, in Petersen Events Center.

The guard scored all five of the Greyhounds points, starting with a three pointer from the left side, with 1:10 left in regulation

On the next play, Loyola would force a turnover, sending the ball back to the Greyhound offense. Krusen attempted a repeat performance from behind the arc, but could not find the net. Freshman Tiffany Padgett would grab the rebound, but was not able to connect for the point. 

With less than a minute left to play, Pitt’s Loliya Briggs received a technical foul, sending Krusen to the charity stripe. The Rockville, Md. native went 2-2 from the line, ending the game 57-47, in favor of the Panthers.
