Ice cold Greyhounds fall to Colgate, 72-45

Loyola’s women’s basketball team really struggled to shoot the ball on Saturday as they lost to Colgate, 72-45. The Greyhounds hit only 29.4-percent of their attempts and went just 2-for-14 from distance in the game while Colgate shot 46.2-percent in the game.

For Loyola, Bria Betz-White was the only player to hit her shots at a good rate. She led the team with 11 points and went 2-for-4 from 3-point ranges. Otherwise, it was missed attempts that led to a terrible 43-28 discrepancy on the boards.

The Greyhounds were trading shots for the first five minutes but just two points over the next six minutes put them down by 13 minutes early on.

Success getting to the rim allowed the Greyhounds to get back within five but a three by Missy Repoli helped give Colgate a 35-25 lead at the break.

Out of the break, Loyola missed three shots on an early possession and were clearly just not shooting well. Colleen Marshall was finally able to get a score but another long drought, nearly six minutes, allowed the Raiders to take 28-point lead with 11:41 remaining in the game and from there, they just cruised to the finish.

The closest Loyola got after that was 21 points.

Loyola drops to 5-14 on the season and 3-5 in the Patriot League. They still rank ahead of Colgate, though, which improved to just 2-6 in conference play.

Four Raiders reached double-digits on the boards. Josie Stockill dominated with 19 points and 15 rebounds.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
