Loyola University Maryland 71, Rider University 65

BALTIMORE, MD-After 17 minutes the score was tied. Then the 'Hounds were unleashed.

Using a 9-1 run to end the first half and a 7-2 run to start the second half, the defending champion and preseason favorite Loyola Greyhounds gave Rider (6-9, 1-2 MAAC)  its fifth straight loss.

"Give credit to Loyola," said Rider head coach Kevin Baggett.  "They made some big shots at some costly times for us."

For the Broncs, junior Daniel Stewart (Philadelphia, PA/Neumann-Goretti) played just 22 minutes due to foul trouble and an eye injury but finished with 13 points and five rebounds.

"I was happy with how physical Danny was tonight," Baggett said. "He did everything I asked of him. He competed out there."

Loyola (10-5, 2-1 MAAC) led 59-45 before Rider went on an 8-0 run, five points by senior Jonathon Thompson (Orlando, Fla./Jones), to cut the lead to 59-53 with 3:34 remaining, but that was as close as the Broncs could get. Thompson finished with 11 points in 25 minutes of action off the bench.

Loyola made six of six foul shots in the final 42 seconds to hold off a late Rider run.

Holding a 43-41 lead, Loyola out-scored Rider 13-2 to take a 56-43 lead with 4:45 left to play.

Loyola junior guard Dylon Cormier scored eight points in the final 4:45 of the game and finished with 21 points.

Trailing 38-27, Rider went on a 14-5 run, nine points by junior Anthony Myles (Dover, DE/Poly-Tech), to cut the lead to 43-41 with 11:00 remaining.  Myles finished with 11 points and six rebounds.

"We're competing," Baggett said. "This team is close. I feel good about this group, they're not quitting, and they're staying together."

Rider led 24-22 before Loyola went on a 9-1 run to take a 31-25 lead at the half.

Loyola out-rebounded Rider 38-29.  "We didn't come up with the rebounds when we needed them," Baggett said.

The Broncs had won three of the last four games with Loyola before Friday.

It was the final MAAC game for Rider in Baltimore, with Loyola scheduled to join the Patriot League this summer.

Loyola is 5-2 at home this year in the Reitz Arena. Since joining the MAAC Rider is 6-10 at Loyola.

Rider last won at Loyola during the 2010-11 season.

Grad Student Erik Etherly, a 6-7 forward who is the MAAC Preseason Player of the Year, finished with a game-high 21 points and a game-high eight rebounds.

Rider junior Tommy Pereira (Nottingham, England/Canarias Basketball Academy) scored a career-high 11 points for the Broncs.  Freshman Zedric Sadler (Detroit, Mich/Cody) made his first collegiate start and finished with eight points, four rebounds and three assists.

After four straight away games the Broncs play at home for the first time since December 9, hosting Siena Sunday at 2pm. Rider defeated Siena in the first MAAC game of the season on December 7.

Siena (2-12, 0-3 MAAC) lost Friday night for the 10th straight game. "We're going to see two teams Sunday who are desperate for a win," Baggett said.  "It will be good to get back home."
