Loyola looks to extend win streak Friday at Rhode Island

Posted on 22 November 2012 by WNST Staff

Game Data

Loyola University Maryland men’s basketball returns to New England for the second time in a week, this time to the Ocean State for a Friday, November 23, date with the University of Rhode Island.

Tip-off is slated for 7 o’clock at the Ryan Center in Kingston, R.I. The game is a part of the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament, an event in which the Greyhounds won the Springfield Division last weekend at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.

 

Series History

Loyola and Rhode Island will be meeting for the third time in series history when they take the court on Friday night.

The Rams hold a 2-0 lead in the series with the last game coming on New Year’s Eve 1989, a 91-71 Rhode Island win in Kingston. The first meeting between the programs came on December 6, 1946 when Loyola’s Lefty Reitz-coached team fell 84-55 at Rhode Island. The team, however, would go on to a 20-12 record that season and win the Mason-Dixon Conference title.

 

Last Time Out

Loyola forced 10 Albany turnovers in the first half and pushed out to a 28-10 lead with just under 11 minutes to play in the stanza before fending off a Great Danes’ rally late to defeat the America East Conference foe, 67-64. The Greyhounds earned the Springfield Division Championship, and brought home the championship trophy named for the late college basketball icon Dave Gavitt, with the win.

Albany’s Jacob Iati tied the game with a 30-foot 3-pointer, leaving 3.1 seconds on the clock for the Greyhounds to call a timeout and set the final play. Dylon Cormier scored with 1.5 ticks left and converted a free throw after he was fouled, and the Great Danes turned the ball over on their inbound play, securing the win.

Erik Etherly, who was named the Springfield Bracket Most Valuable Player, led all players with 23 points, and Cormier, who joined Etherly on the All-Tournament Team, added 16. Winbush tallied 12 points, a game-best five assists and matched Etherly for team-high honors with seven rebounds.

 

Winning Combo

After Albany tied the game with 3.1 ticks on the clock, Loyola Head Coach Jimmy Patsos set up an inbound play in a timeout. Graduate student Anthony Winbush threw a baseball pass 80 feet to Dylon Cormier  who was inside the opposite foul line. Cormier caught the pass, laid it in with his right hand and was fouled in the process by Albany’s D.J. Evans with 1.5 seconds left.

Cormier made the free throw to provide the final margin, and Albany’s inbound pass went off the hands of Evans and out-of-bounds to secure the win.

Cormier finished 5-of-9 from the field and 5-of-7 from the foul line for 13 points to go with three assists and two steals.

Winbush’s assist was his game-high fifth of the contest.

 

Steady Performance

Erik Etherly turned in another 20-point game, his second of the season, on Sunday in the title game against Albany, scoring 23 points on 7-of-12 from the floor and 9-of-12 at the line. He also tied Anthony Winbush for team-high honors with seven rebounds.

Etherly had his second 20-plus point game of the week and the young season after recording 22 in Loyola’s Wednesday-night win over UMBC on November 14.

He has now scored 20 or more six times during his tenure at Loyola – hitting or eclipsing the plateau four times last year – and the Greyhounds are 6-0 in those games.

In Loyola’s three wins last week, including a Saturday victory over Norfolk State in which he scored 12 and had nine rebounds, Etherly averaged 19.0 points and 8.0 rebounds. He made 22-of-28 (.786) free throws, as well, during the stretch.

 

Cormier Continues Efficiency

Dylon Cormier made the most of his shots during the first game of the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament. He converted on 7-of-11 shots, while making 5-of-7 at the free-throw line to score a game-high 19 points.

The junior guard followed that with a 5-of-9 shooting performance against Albany to score 16. In the two games at Mohegan Sun Arena, Cormier shot 60-percent from the field, raising his season average to 50.8-percent (32-of-63).

Steady improvement in shooting percentage has been Cormier’s trait since coming to Loyola. He shot 37.9-percent to average 8.1 points as a freshman in 2010-2011 and improved to 46.1-percent and 13.4 points per game last year. This season, his 50.8-percent mark has translated to an 18.4 points average.

 

Slowing Scorers

Albany guards Mike Black and Jacob Iati entered last Saturday’s game averaging a combined 34.75 points per game, but Loyola held the duo to just 18, including three on Iati’s desperate heave to tie the game with 3.1 seconds left.

Black, who was averaging 18.25 points in four games was 3-of-8 from the field and scored seven points, while Iati went 3-of-7 after averaging 16.5 prior. They also committed eight turnovers in the game.

In the game following Albany’s contest against Loyola – Tuesday at South Carolina State – Black went off for 23 points, making 9-of-11 shots. As a team, the Great Danes set a NCAA Division I record in that game by making 15 3-pointers, although they hit just five versus Loyola.

 

Welcome Back, Winbush

Anthony Winbush made his season debut on Saturday against Norfolk State and played 25 minutes off the bench. The graduate student scored two points, had three steals, three rebounds and two assists.

Winbush made an even bigger impact against Albany, scoring 12 points, matching Erik Etherly for team-high honors with seven rebounds and dishing out a team-high five assists in 31 minutes of action.

 

Hubbard Honored

Redshirt freshman guard Tyler Hubbard was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week on Monday after averaging 10.3 points in three Loyola wins last week.

Hubbard scored a career-high 17 on Wednesday night against UMBC and followed with 11 versus Norfolk State. While he scored just three in the Albany game, he was involved in several key defensive possessions for the Greyhounds at the end of the game.

This season, Hubbard is fourth on the team with a 9.0 points per game average. He is shooting .500 from both 3-point range (12-of-24) and the field at large (15-of-30).

 

Defensive Stance

Loyola used a strong defensive presence in its win over Norfolk State. The Greyhounds forced 19 turnovers, 11 coming via Greyhounds’ steals, a season-high. Loyola also held Norfolk State to 35.8-percent from the field, 33.3-percent in the second half.

Anthony Winbush and Robert Olson each had three steals, and Dylon Cormier came up with a pair.

The Greyhounds also matched their season-high with eight blocked shots. Jordan Latham and Erik Etherly each swatted three, while Jarred Jones had the other two.

 

Guards Early, Posts Late

A pair of Loyola guards, Dylon Cormier and Tyler Hubbard, each scored first half against UMBC, and Robert Olson chipped in six, leading the Greyhounds to a 45-30 advantage at halftime over the Retrievers.

The Greyhounds then turned to the post in the second half where Erik Etherly scored 17 after the break en route to a team-high 22. He made 5-of-8 from the field, including stepping out for his first three of the season, and 6-of-6 from the free-throw line in the second half.

Jarred Jones added seven second-half points, knocking down both his shots form inside and going to the line for 3-of-4.

 

Freshmen Produce

A trio of Loyola freshmen combined for 34 points and 15 rebounds against UMBC, as Tyler Hubbard (a redshirt freshman) scored 17, while Jarred Jones and Franz Rassman had eight and nine.

The group also had five assists, six blocked shots and four steals in the win.

Combined the three played 70 minutes against the Retrievers.

 

Jones Making Early Impact

Freshman Jarred Jones has started the first five games of his collegiate career and made a difference on the court for the Greyhounds. A two-time All-Metro honoree by The Baltimore Sun at John Carroll High School, Jones scored nine points and had six rebounds on Sunday evening at Washington. He followed that with a box-score filling nine points, five rebounds, three blocks, three steals and two assists versus UMBC.

In his first game, he debuted with just one point, but he filled several box-score categories in his effort. Jones tallied three rebounds and two each of blocked shots, steals and assists.

 

Hubbard From Behind The Line

Tyler Hubbard knocked down all but one of his 3-point attempts against UMBC and has made 8-of-17 this season from long distance. He scored a career-best 17 points against the Retrievers and also had two assists and a steal.

His 12 3-pointers made lead the team, and he is fourth on the squad in scoring with a 9.0 points per game average.

In his collegiate debut against Binghamton, he made 4-of-9 shots, 3-of-7 from 3-point range, and finished the night with 11 points in his collegiate debut. In the process, he became the first player to reach double figures in his first collegiate game since Jawaan Wright came off the bench to score 10 on November 19, 2005, against Towson University.

 

Brooks’ Big Game

Julius Brooks provided 20 solid minutes in the post off the bench for the Greyhounds, recording eight points and a game-high seven rebounds versus Binghamton. Those numbers were not career-highs for the senior, but they were the best he’s put up in some time.

Brooks saw limited action in 29 games last season, averaging just 4.7 minutes per game, but matched his career-high with 28 minutes. His eight points were his most since scoring a career-best 10 on January 31, 2010, as a freshman, and his seven boards were his high since February 25, 2011, when he had eight. Both of those games came against Niagara University.

At Washington, he scored five, had a pair of rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot against the Huskies.

He made his first start since February 2010, his freshman season, on Wednesday night against UMBC.

 

MAAC Preseason Poll & Player of the Year

The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference unveiled its preseason coaches’ poll and the league’s Preseason Player of the Year on Friday night in a live Preseason Awards Show on ESPN3. Loyola was named the team to beat in 2012-2013, and Erik Etherly was tabbed the Preseason Player of the Year by the coaches. (Complete poll and All-MAAC teams at left).

This is the first time Loyola has been selected No. 1 in the MAAC preseason poll in 24 years in the league, nor had a Greyhound player been named Preseason Player of the Year prior to Etherly.

Three Loyola players were named to the various Preseason All-MAAC teams as voted on by the coaches of the league.

Erik Etherly earned an All-MAAC First Team nod, while Dylon Cormier and Robert Olson were named to the Second Team.

 

Classy Senior

Senior guard Robert Olson was named one of 30 candidates for the prestigious Senior CLASS Award last week. An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School®, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.

Olson was the Greyhounds’ third-leading scorer last season with 11.1 points per game and enters this season Loyola ranked fourth at Loyola in 3-point percentage (138-of-336, .4107) sixth in career 3-pointers made (138) and eighth in 3-pointers attempted (336). Last season, Olson was one of four Loyola players to earn All-MAAC honors, picking up Third Team mention and later All-Tournament honors.

 

High Marks

The Loyola men’s basketball team scored the highest amongst squads in the State of Maryland in the most recent NCAA Graduation Success Rate report. The Greyhounds checked in with a 91-percent GSR, tops among the state’s nine Division I schools, for players who entered the school between 2002-2005.

 

Saint Peter’s Game At The Meadowlands

The Loyola-Saint Peter’s Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game slated for Saturday, December 8, has been moved from the Peacocks’ Jersey City campus to the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, N.J., at the Meadowlands complex.

The Greyhounds and Peacocks will tip-off at 12 noon prior to the second game of the doubleheader between Duke and Temple.

 

Second NCAA Trip

Last year, Loyola made its first trip to the NCAA Tournament in 18 seasons, a span of 17 years, 11 months and 23 days. In all, it was 6,569 days between NCAA Tournament Games for the Greyhounds.

Last year’s true freshmen – Tyler Hubbard and R.J. Williams – were less than one year old the last time Loyola played in an NCAA match.

 

MAAC Title

Loyola won its second MAAC Championship in 23 years in the conference on Monday, March 5, 2012, defeating Fairfield University, 48-44, in the lowest scoring championship game in league history.

The Greyhounds held Fairfield to just six second-half field goals and 28.8-percent shooting in the game.

Loyola, which finished second in the conference during the regular season and earned the No. 2 seed in the league tournament, defeated Niagara University and Siena College in the MAAC Quarterfinals and Semifinals, respectively.

 

Turnaround…Check

Loyola completed the turnaround from finishing the 2003-2004 season with the lowest RPI in NCAA Division I basketball. The Greyhounds finished that season with a 1-27 record the season before Jimmy Patsos took over as head coach.

Since then, Loyola has gone 122-123 and culminated the turnaround by winning a school Division I record 24 games  in 2011-2012.

Patsos is one of only three coaches at the Division I level in the last 20 years to take over a program that had won zero or one game the year prior to then win 100 games at the school. He joins Steve Cleveland (BYU) and Pat Douglass (UC-Irvine) as the others.

 

Patsos Named Coach & Man Of The Year

Jimmy Patsos became the first Loyola coach to earn The Rock/Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Coach of the Year honors by a vote of his peers in the league.

Patsos guided the Greyhounds to a school Division I high 24 wins and a program MAAC record 13 victories. He earned his 100th career coaching victory in November 2012 and led the Greyhounds to the No. 2 seed in the MAAC Championships.

Later in March, Patsos was named the Skip Prosser Man of the Year award for his work on and off the court, an honor presented by CollegeInsider.com.

 

2012 All-MAAC Honors

For the first time since the league expanded to three All-MAAC teams in 1998, four Greyhounds received all-league honors, topping all teams in the conference. Erik Etherly was named to the All-MAAC First Team, Dylon Cormier to the Second, and Justin Drummond and Robert Olson to the Third.

Loyola led all teams in the MAAC with its four selections, just in front of Iona’s three.

The Greyhounds’ previous high was at the end of the 1997-1998 season when Mike Powell (1st), Jason Rowe (2nd) and Roderick Platt (3rd) earned All-MAAC honors.

Etherly led Loyola in scoring (13.7), rebounding (7.5) and blocked shots (50), while finishing second on the team with 63 assists. He shot .530 from the field, good for third in the conference

Cormier was second on the team in scoring, just back of Etherly, with a 13.4 points per game average while improving his field-goal percentage nearly 10 points from his freshman season to .461 as a sophomore.

Drummond has come off the bench in 29 of the Greyhounds’ 33 games last year and is fourth on the team with 11.1 points per game. The guard as also third in rebounding (3.9), and he has scored in double figures 17 times this year.

Olson was one of the top 3-point shooters in the conference last year. He shot .431 from behind the arc, third-best in the MAAC, and averaged 11.1 points per game. The guard entered the month of January averaging less than nine points per game, but from that point forward, he was the team’s second-leading scorer at nearly 13 a contest.

 

Century Mark

Head Coach Jimmy Patsos became the third coach in Loyola history to win 100 games when the Greyhounds defeated UMBC, 73-63, on the road last season. Patsos, who is now in his ninth season, took over a team that finished 1-27 during the 2002-2003 season. He won his 100th game in his 215th career game.

Last season, Patsos moved into third-place all time at Loyola in victories, trailing only Lefty Reitz (349 wins, 1937-44, 1945-61) and Nap Doherty (165, 1961-74).

Loyola All-Time Coaching Wins List
1. 349 Lefty Reitz 1937-1944, 1945-1961
2. 165 Nap Doherty 1961-1974
3. 126 Jimmy Patsos 2004-present
4. 85 Mark Amatucci 1982-1989
5. 72 Gary Dicovitsky 1976-1981

 

 

Baltimore Bred And More From Nearby

Since taking over as head coach in 2004, Jimmy Patsos has put an emphasis on recruiting locally, and it has never shown as much as on this year’s roster. Four players – junior guard Dylon Cormier (Cardinal Gibbons), junior forward Jordan Latham (City) and sophomore guard R.J. Williams and freshman forward Josh Forney (St. Frances) are products of schools within the city limits.

Six more players played in high school within 50 miles of Loyola, as the crow flies (thanks daftlogic.com): Jarred Jones, John Carroll, 20.5; Tyler Hubbard, Montrose Christian, 32.6 miles; Robert Olson, Georgetown Prep, 33.9; Anthony Winbush, T.C. Williams, 43.7; and Erik Etherly, Annandale, 47.9.

 

What’s Next

Loyola plays a pair of Baltimore-area teams in the five days following its contest at Rhode Island. The Greyhounds host Towson University at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, November 26, before traveling to Coppin State University for a 7:30 p.m. tip on Wednesday, November 28.

Towson S Dangerfield suspended for finale at UNH

Posted on 15 November 2012 by WNST Staff

JORDAN DANGERFIELD SUSPENDED BY CAA FOR REGULAR SEASON FINALE
Tiger Safety To Miss Tigers’ Game At New Hampshire

RICHMOND, Va. – Senior free safety Jordan Dangerfield (Royal Palm Beach H.S./Royal Palm Beach, Fla.) of the Towson University football team has been suspended for one game by the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) as a result of two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties in the Tigers’ 41-10 win over the University of Rhode Island last week.

A three-year starter at safety for the Tigers, Dangerfield will not play in Towson’s regular season finale at the University of New Hampshire on Saturday. The Tigers, now 6-4 overall and 5-2 in the CAA, can earn a share of the CAA championship with a win over UNH.

CAA Commissioner Tom Yeager and CAA Football Coordinator of Officials Jim Maconaghy reviewed the video of the two plays, along with the National Coordinator of Football Officials and his advisory panel. The NCAA panel concluded that  Dangerfield’s actions in the Rhode Island game warranted a one-game suspension and the CAA agreed.

Commissioner Yeager said, “Upon extensive video review of several plays by the conference office and the NCAA Football officiating panel, Towson senior defensive back Jordan Dangerfield has been suspended for one game by the CAA following unsportsmanlike play in the Tigers’ game against Rhode Island on Nov. 10. Dangerfield will not play in Towson’s upcoming contest at New Hampshire on Nov. 17.”

“It is unfortunate for our team that we will have to play such an important and historic game without our All-American safety Jordan Dangerfield,” said Towson Coach Rob Ambrose. “With that being said, I have great confidence that our team will rise to the challenge once again as they have continued to support each other through adversity all season long.”

A pre-season All-American selection, Dangerfield has made 69 tackles this season, second on the team. He is ranked 16th in the CAA in tackles and has broken up six passes, a mark that leads the team. A two-year co-captain, Dangerfield has made 258 tackles in his career, 11th on Towson’s all-time list.

The Tigers, who have won three games in a row, will face New Hampshire at Cowell Stadium on Saturday at 12 noon. The game will be broadcast back to the Baltimore area on Comcast Sports.

Towson RB Booker receives national honor

Posted on 12 November 2012 by WNST Staff

DOMINIQUE BOOKER HONORED AS CFPA RUNNING BACK OF WEEK

Senior Back Ran For Career High 181 Yards on Seven Carries In Win Over Rhode Island

TOWSON, Md.– Senior running back Dominique Booker (Hermitage H.S./Richmond, Va.) of Towson University has been named as the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) FCS National Running Back of the Week award winner, it has been announced by CFPA officials.

In the final regular season home game of his college career, Booker ran for a career high 181 yards on just seven carries as the Tigers won their third game in a row, a 41-10 Colonial Athletic Association victory over Rhode Island on Saturday afternoon.

Booker, who had rushed for only 193 yards all season entering Saturday’s game, averaged 25.9 yards per carry on his way to the best game of his career.

In the first quarter, he ran for 24 yards on the Tigers’ first play. That enabled him to become the 22nd player in school history with 1,000 rushing yards in his career.

In the second quarter, he ran for 22 yards to the Rams’ three-yard line, helping Towson take a 13-7 lead on a three-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Grant Enders (Old Mill H.S./Millersville, Md.) to wide receiverGerrard Sheppard (McDonogh H.S./Baltimore, Md.).

Later in the second quarter, he had a 33-yard run to the URI 19-yard line, setting up another Towson touchdown.

On the opening play of the third quarter, he ran for 83 yards around the left end and scored to give the Tigers a 27-10 lead with 14:39 left in the period. It was the second-longest rushing play in school history, topped only Jason Corle’s 84-yard touchdown run against Wagner in 1996.

With 1,175 yards on 229 carries, Booker is now the 17th-leading rusher in school history.

Ranked 19th in NCAA FCS this week, the Tigers put their three-game winning streak on the line on Saturday, Nov. 17 when they visit the University of New Hampshire on Saturday afternoon at 12 noon. UNH leads the Colonial Athletic Association with an 8-2 overall record and a 6-1 CAA mark. Towson has a 6-4 overall record and is tied for third in the CAA with a 5-2 record.

Towson looks to keep playoff hopes alive Saturday against Rhode Island

Posted on 09 November 2012 by WNST Staff

TOWSON, Md. - The Tigers will be seeking their third consecutive victory when they host Rhode Island at Unitas Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Tigers are facing the Rams for the 13th time in a series that is even at six wins each. Towson has won four of the last five meetings, including a 28-17 win at Meade Stadium last year. That victory enabled the Tigers to clinch their first Colonial Athletic Association championship.
Towson enters this week’s game tied for fourth place in the CAA with Richmond (6-3, 4-2) and Villanova (6-3, 4-2). The Tigers and the Spiders do not play this season and Towson beat Villanova.
Next week’s opponent, New Hampshire (8-2, 6-1) leads the CAA, one-half game ahead of James Madison (7-2, 5-1) and Old Dominion (8-1, 5-1). ODU is not eligible for the CAA championship because of its plans to move to NCAA FBS status.
The Tigers, who are the defending CAA champions, have won 11 of their last 14 CAA games. Towson was 7-1 in 2011 and has a 4-2 record this year. From 2007 to 2010, the Tigers were 3-29 in CAA games.
Towson is also seeking its second straight appearance in the NCAA FCS playoffs. Last year, the Tigers earned the CAA’s automatic bid as conference champion. Towson earned a first-round bye and dropped a 40-38 heartbreaker to Lehigh in the second round of the playoffs before a sellout crowd at Unitas Stadium.
