Loyola (MD) body blows lead to 91-62 win over Delaware
DOVER, Del. (AP) — Chuck Champion scored 15 points, James Fives scored 14 and Andrew Kostecka had 13 and Loyola (Md.) beat Delaware State 91-62 on Tuesday night.
The Greyhounds (1-2) took advantage of their size on the inside for a 51-38 rebounding advantage while outscoring Delaware State 36-14 in the paint.
Loyola held a slight 35-29 lead at the half, in large part due to its ineffective shooting from outside. The Greyhounds were 4 of 17 from 3-point range while taking 15 shots within the 3-point arc. In the second half they pounded the interior and turned the game one-sided.
Kostecka’s layup with 11:49 left made it 51-41 with 11:49 left. A little more than three minutes later he made a pair of free throws and the lead was 61-42. Loyola made 6 of 9 from 3-point range in the second half.
Saleik Edwards led the Hornets (0-3) with 16 points and Fahim Jenneto scored 11.
