Loy­ola women win in front of empty stands

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - COLLEGE BASKETBALL -

The Loy­ola Mary­land women’s bas­ket­ball team won just its third game of the sea­son but the Grey­hounds didn’t have an au­di­ence on hand to wit­ness the fin­ish of the event.

Ju­nior Han­nah Niles led Loy­ola with a sea­son-high of 17 points in Loy­ola’s 70-51 win against Army West Point on Women In Sports Day at Reitz Arena on Satur­day.

The game fin­ished with­out any fans in at­ten­dance af­ter a fire-alarm sig­nal caused the evac­u­a­tion of the arena at half­time.

“There was a main­te­nance is­sue in the build­ing that Reitz Arena ad­joins,” Loy­ola ath­let­ics spokesman Ryan Ei­gen­brode said. “We could only have a re­duced ca­pac­ity in the arena, so the de­ci­sion was made to clear the stands af­ter a lengthy de­lay and con­tinue play­ing the game.”

Sopho­more De­laney Con­nolly grabbed a game-high nine re­bounds and was one of four Grey­hounds to have dou­ble fig­ures in scor­ing, with 11. Ju­nior Stephanie Karcz had 16 points and nine re­bounds, while fresh­man Taleah Dixon had 15 points. Madi­son Hovren led Army West Point with 17 points and seven re­bounds.

ST. FRAN­CIS (PA.) 83, MOUNT ST. MARY’S 72: Michaela Har­ri­son tied a Mount St. Mary’s sin­gle-game pro­gram record for most 3-point­ers with eight in the loss for the Mount (10-10, 4-5 NEC).

Har­ri­son went 8-of-16 from be­yond the arc for a team-high 24 points, while also adding six re­bounds and three as­sists. Her eight 3-point­ers tied Myr­iam Bac­couche and Do­minique Maz­zuchi for most in a game in pro­gram his­tory. Maz­zuchi was the last player to ac­com­plish the feat, as she drained eight against Quin­nip­iac in 2007.

Re­becca Lee chipped in with her third ca­reer dou­ble dou­ble with 16 points and 10 boards for the Mount, and Jatar­rikah Set­tle reg­is­tered eight points and six re­bounds.
