Retrievers beat Loyola for sixth-straight win

Jeneh Perry grabbed 18 rebounds and just narrowly missed a double-double with nine points, but not even her effort was enough to overcome a red-hot UMBC squad.

Jeneh Perry grabbed 18 rebounds and just narrowly missed a double-double with nine points, but not even her effort was enough to overcome a red-hot UMBC squad.

It’s been a really good roll for the UMBC women’s basketball team. the team is no undefeated in the month of December and rattled off their sixth-straight win as they beat cross-town rival Loyola, 52-46.

Once again for the Retrievers, the big difference was their ability to get to the line. UMBC only barely out-shot the Greyhounds 35.4% to 31.5% and were actually edged on the boards 37-34, but the Retrievers went 15-for-20 from the free throw line and Loyola went only 4-for-8.

Taylor McCarley led the Retrievers with 18 points while Pandora Wilson scored 13 with seven rebounds and Capree Garner scored 10 points and also had five rebounds, three assists, two locks and two assists.

UMBC was unable to truly breakaway from the Greyhounds at any points in the game but nailed 10 free throws in the final three minutes of the game to keep enough to a cushion to be able to withstand late three’s. Loyola only made five shots in the fourth quarter, their last four were 3-pointers and they kept them alive.

Steph Smith led the Greyhounds with four three’s in a 12-point effort while Jeneh Perry has a monstrous game on the boards, bringing down 18 rebounds to go with nine points.

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.
