Fairfield too much for Greyhounds inside

Loyola was consistently met with big bodies when they went inside against Fairfield, which prevented them from getting in any sort of an offensive rhythm.

Loyola was consistently met with big bodies when they went inside against Fairfield, which prevented them from getting in any sort of an offensive rhythm.

It was their big problem last year and it has carried over to this year. The Loyola women’s basketball team is struggling to generate offense. Loyla shot just 25.4-percent in the 71-45 loss to Fairfield. Colleen Marshall just wouldn’t get the ball in the hoop regularly as she shot 4-for-17 in her nine-point effort. Diana Logan led the Greyhounds with 11 points in the game, scoring that in only 17 minutes of action.

Following an early layup by Marshall to give Loyola an early lead, the Stags scored 10-straight points and 16 of the game’s next 18 points as they took a commanding lea early in the second quarter of the game.

There just wasn’t much of an offensive rhythm in the first half and the Greyhounds trailed by 20 points at the break, 35-15.

Things were a little better in the second half.

With 4:14 remaining in the third quarter Jenej Perry stole the ball fro Kristin Schatzlein, the Greyhounds set up an offense, Marshall dish the ball to Logan and the senior guard nailed a 3-pointer, which sparked a 10-1 run. But the Stags responded with four-straight points to end the third quarter to regain their 19-point lead.

The Greyhounds just couldn’t get inside, scoring only 14 points in the paint and failing to register a single second-chance point. Loyola was out-rebounded 48-37 an were out-shot 43.4% to 25.4%. Fairfield got to the foul line 22 times and made 16 of their attempts while the Greyhounds went only 8-for-13 at the charity stripe.

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.
