Loyola still struggles to his three’s in loss to SBU

Andre Walker led the Greyhounds with 19 points but once again the team was stuck out on the perimeter and unable to make three's.

Andre Walker led the Greyhounds with 19 points but once again the team was stuck out on the perimeter and unable to make three’s.

Loyola’s inability to hit shots from beyond the arc is continually costing them in game. On Tuesday night the Greyhounds men’s basketball team went just 2-for-17 on their three-point attempts as the team lost to Stony Brook, 76-62.

Andre Walker led the team with 19 points and shot a fairly efficient 6-for-13, but Tyler Hubbard’s 15-point performance came off a less than thrilling 4-for-11 performance from the floor and Jarred Jones went just 4-for-15 in an eight-point effort.

Stony Brook on the other hand made 51.8-percent of their shots and went 8-for-21 from 3-point range. They also out-rebounded Loyola, 40-27.

Loyola missed their first three shots of the game and quickly found themselves in a 6-0 hole just two minutes into the game. After Jones finally got Loyola on the board, Bryan Sekunda nailed a three to put Loyola down by seven.

The Greyhounds were never able to make up that deficit and never even tied the game. Stony Brook had a response for every thing the Greyhounds came at them with.

Walker figured to get the greyhounds come momentum by stealing the ball from Rayshaun McGrew and after drawing a foul making both free throws, but Ahmed Walker hit a three to put the Seawolves up by eight points. After Franz Rassman, who finished the game with 12 points, got a jumper and a follow-up block, Carson Puriefoy worked into the paint and drew a foul to get the line right away.

A jumper by McGrew after a missed three by Hubbard gave Stony Brook a 10-point lead just seven minutes into the game. Loyola responded with a mini 5-0 run over the next three minutes to make it just a two possession game, but Stony Brook stole the ball twice as they rebuild their 10-point lead in just a few minutes.

Loyola’s inability to make shots consistently and Stony Brook’s ability to hit anything they threw up in the first half helped the Seawolves to as much as a 16-point lead in the first half and a 12-point lead at the break.

Loyola out-scored Stony Brook 14-8 over the first seven minutes of the second half to get the game to just a six-point differential, but Puriefoy hit two three’s over the next few minutes to halt any sort of momentum Loyola was building. Jameel Warney was able to get inside consistently as well and a layup with 6:36 left gave Stony Brook their 16-point lead back.

Like in the first half, Stony Brook had a response for everything Loyola was doing as held onto at least a 10-point lead the rest of the way.

Warney and Sekunda led Stony Brook with 18 points each. Sekunda made four of his 10 3-point attempts.

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.
