With four seconds left Andre Walker drove down the lane and put the game-winning layup in the hoop.

There was barely any time left on the clock when Andre Walker drove down the right side of the lane and laid the ball off the glass as the Loyola Greyhounds rallied from an 11-point deficit to beat the Lehigh Mountain Hawks, 51-50.

Walker led the Greyhounds with 18 points while Jarred Jones posted a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds.

Loyola made only one of their last 14 field goal attempts to end the first half as Lehigh went into the break with a 29-18 lead, but Loyola out-shot Lehigh 42.3% to 28% in the second half in their comeback.

A three by Nevell Provo five minutes into the second half cut Loyola’s deficit to three points. Tim Kempton, the son of long time professional basketball player Tim Kempton, hit a layup in the paint in response, but a layup by Walker, a three by Tyler Hubbard and a another layup by Chancellor Barnard gave the Greyhounds a 37-35 lead.

Kempton, who finished the game with 10 points and 13 rebounds, and Jesse Chuku, who finished with nine points and 11 rebounds, kept the Mountain Hawks in the game in the second half. Loyola went up by as many as five points in the second half after Bernard hit a pair of free throws. However, they were never able to break away and with less than a minute remaining Austin Price hit a layup to give the Mountain Hawks a one-point lead.

Then Walker drove the lane and got the game-winner and helped his team improve to 3-0 in Patriot League play.

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.
