College Hoops Player of the Day for Wednesday, November 20, 2013
Developing a knack for the dramatic, senior guard Dylon Cormier and Maryland's Loyola Greyhounds improved to 4-0 on the season with their second overtime win, an 89-83 victory over UMBC (University of Maryland Baltimore City), Wednesday night in Baltimore.
Cormier matched his season-high with 34 points, a number he also reached ten days ago when the Greyhounds won at Cornell, 93-89, also in overtime.
In the win over UMBC, Cormier was 12-for-22 from the field, 9-for-13 from the foul line, had 10 boards, two assists and two steals in 44 minutes of floor time. He leads the Greyhounds in scoring, averaging 28.3 ppg, after averaging 13.4 as a sophomore and 16.4 last season.
The win was the third on the road for the Greyhounds and the start of a four-game road stretch. They won't be at home again until December 19th.
The Greyhounds run in the relative obscurity of the Patriot League. Their next game is November 26 at the University of Connecticut.
