Dylon Cormier Pours in 34 Points as the Loyola Greyhounds Improve to 4-0

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.

Loyola (MD) Takes Top Spot in MAAC as Eric Etherly and Dylon Cormier Score 22 Apiece

College Hoops Player of the Day for Friday, February 10, 2012

Winning their seventh game in a row, the Loyola (MD) Greyhounds grabbed sole possession of first place in the MAAC with a decisive, 87-81, win over Iona on Friday's limited slate of games.

The Greyhounds improved to 19-5 overall, but more importantly, 12-2 in the MAAC, taking the top spot away from the Gaels, who entered the game tied with Loyola at 11-2.

Taking an early lead on their home court, the Greyhounds raced to a 47-30 advantage at the break and held on, despite being outscored by 11 points in the second half.

6'7" junior forward Eric Etherly and Dylon Cormier each tallied 22 points to lead Loyala scorers. Etherly was 9-for-12 from the field and hauled down 10 boards for his eighth double-double of the season. Cormier, a 6'2" sophomore guard, was 8-for-16 from the field with two 3-pointers, adding five rebounds and three assists.

The Greyhounds avenged an earlier loss at Iona, but the regular season is far from secured. Loyola has four conference games remaining, three on the road, with their final game at 10-4 Manhattan, a team the Greyhounds beat by only a point, 61-60, on their home floor, January 5th.

NOTABLE: There's plenty of hoops action on tap for Saturday, with #5 North Carolina looking to rebound from their last-second loss to Duke on Wednesday when they tip at home against #19 Virginia at 1:00 pm ET. #2 Syracuse hosts UConn at the same hour. At 1:45, #4 Missouri hosts #6 Baylor in a Big 12 rematch, and, at 4:00, #13 San Deigo State visits #14 UNLV in a Mountain West showdown between the conference's two top teams.

At 6:00, #3 Ohio State hosts #11 Michigan State, and the evening is capped off with #1 Kentucky traveling to Vanderbilt at 9:00 pm. With a win, the Wildcats would improve to 25-1.
