Jeneh Perry scored a career-high 18 points and grabbed 17 rebounds as Loyola was able to pull away to beat Boston U to improve to 4-2 in Patriot League play.

Jeneh Perry scored a career-high 18 points and grabbed a game-high 17 points as the Loyola women’s basketball team beat the Boston University Terriers, 63-54 on Saturday afternoon. Fellow senior Colleen Marshall also scored a game-high 19 points for her fifth double-digit point performance in the last six games.

Early success from beyond the arc helped give the Greyhounds a decent lead that they were able to carry throughout the game. After the game was tied at three, Marshall hit a 3-pointer and then stole the ball and ran up the floor and finished the play with a layup. Steph Smith them hit two threes as the Greyhounds went ahead 16-9 with 2:25 remaining in the first quarter.

Boston U was able to tie the game just midway through the second quarter after Kara Sheftic hit a jumper to complete a mini 7-0 run, but Diana Logan got inside to re-give the Greyhounds and lead and Perry completed a successful and-one to give Loyola a two-possession lead. Another late steal by Marshall led to another fast break layup for the Greyhounds and Perry made two last free throws to put Loyola ahead by seven points at the break, 31-24.

Loyola continued to build on their lead in the second half. Marshall scored her team’s first seven points out of the break and responded to a three by Sarah Hope as the Greyhounds went ahead by 11 points.

The closest Boston U was able to get after that was six points following another three by Hope, but Loyola took a double-digit lead into the fourth quarter and led by at least seven points the rest of the game.

Loyola was out-shot 44.4% to 36.7% but forced 19 turnovers to make up for it on the way to their win.

It was a seconds-straight win for the Greyhounds and fourth in their last six games as they improved to 4-2 in Patriot League play. They will travel to Bucknell for the start of a three-game conference road trip over the next two weeks.

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.
