Sheahin, who graduated from Loyola in May 2013 with a degree in business, led the Greyhounds to their first post-season victory in program history during the 2011 Women’s National Invitation Tournament.  Her three-point basket with just over three seconds left in regulation lifted the Greyhounds over Old Dominion, 67-65.

A two-time Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference defensive player of the year and three-time All-MAAC performer, Sheahin finished her career third on Loyola’s all-time points’ list with 1,513, and first in steals with 347. Sheahin shattered the steals record by more than 90 thefts before hanging up her green and grey uniform.

Giro Live, which is located in the city of Osnaburck, Germany, finished the 2012-13 season with a 16-13-1 record and made it to the semifinals of the league playoff.
