Fans rejoice! Greyhounds regular season basketball is officially back for another season! The Greyhounds have their first home game of the season this coming Saturday against a very familiar opponent, Fairfield.
This season marks Loyola’s first season as a part of the Patriot League, but it wouldn’t be a season of Loyola basketball without playing a familiar MAAC rival.
The Hounds hope to have a great start coming home for their first game at Reitz Arena of the 2013-2014 season. The Hounds start their conference schedule in January, but have four home games before the conference schedule starts.
C’mon out and support the Hounds for their regular season home opener against Fairfield! For ticket information go check out the Hounds’ website here.

With the Fall sports season coming to an end, the Loyola men’s soccer team will be ending their season in the next week.
The Hounds will be ending their 2013 season at home against conference rival Lafayette, with a chance to end the season on a high at Ridley Athletic Complex in front of the home Loyola fans. Even though their conference schedule didn’t turn out exactly as planned this year, ending the season with a win at home sure would feel good.
Come on out and support the Hounds in their last home game of the season at Ridley Athletic Complex next Saturday! For ticket information please visit the team website.

It’s that time of year again. NBA basketball is finally back in season starting tonight with a matchup between the two-time defending champion Miami Heat and the finally health-restored Chicago Bulls.
The question on everyone’s mind heading into this season is, “can anyone stop the Miami Heat from winning a third straight NBA title?” There are a couple of different teams that might threaten the Heat’s chances at a third straight title.
The first two threats to the Heat can be seen in the Western Conference. First is the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers have been getting better every year and pressing for the title in the Western Conference. With the addition of a couple of solid 3-point shooters and Doc Rivers as head coach, the Clippers should be a team to look out for.
The next team of course is the team that fell just short in the NBA championship against the Heat this past year, the San Antonio Spurs. While it is true that the Spurs are aging, it doesn’t seem to be slowing down Tony Parker or Manu Ginobli. Besides, as long as Gregg Popovich is the head coach, you can never fully count out the Spurs.
Moving over to the Eastern Conference, it would be pretty easy to say that the Chicago Bulls pose a decent threat to the Heat. With a healthy Derrick Rose for the first time in almost two years, the Bulls should be able to close games out better than they did last year and find themselves pushing up at the top of the Eastern Conference.
The other big threat to the Heat in the East would have to be the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers are a young, close knit team that now has a solid amount of playoff experience after pushing the Miami Heat to a 7-game series in the Eastern Conference finals. With that young experience, the Pacers should be a big threat for years to come.
No matter who decides to emerge in the NBA this year, we can be sure we will see some great basketball this year.

The wait is finally over! Greyhounds basketball is officially back here at Loyola. This year Halloween is bringing more to Loyola’s campus than costumes and candy.

The Hounds are hoping for a great start to their first season in the Patriot League. Their conference schedule starts in January, but they will face some familiar foes in the first half of the season, including Fairfield and UMBC.
The women’s basketball team starts their season on November 10th in College Park against the Maryland Terrapins. Come on down to Reitz Arena this Thursday and help the Hounds start the new season in style! For ticket information go to the Greyhounds website.

The Loyola Women’s Volleyball Team will be hosting a weekend of conference volleyball to kick off the month of November. The Hounds kicked off a long month of conference games in the Patriot League with a very respectable 1-2 record, slowly working their way back into contention.
The last month of the season presents a lot of opportunities for home match-ups at Reitz Arena. The Hounds currently find themselves in the middle of the pack in the Patriot League, with a chance for a couple of statement matches at home.
First, on Friday November 1st, they will play host to the Lafayette Leopards, who currently occupy the basement of the Patriot League for women’s volleyball. The Hounds then have an opportunity to make a big statement in a home match against the American Eagles, who are at the top of the conference with an almost flawless record on the season.
Start off your November right by coming out and supporting the Hounds at Reitz Arena!

I know it sounds like a joke, but this is more than serious. The recent partial government shutdown due to a budget impasse in Congress has now officially infected the world of sports.
The shutdown has caused the sports programs at the service academies (Army, Navy, Air Force) to be temporarily suspended. As a result of the temporary program suspension, the three teams are in jeopardy of having to skip their games for this upcoming weekend, leaving two games at risk of being abandoned.
The first game at risk of falling victim to the shutdown is Army vs. Boston College. Boston College has been in contact with Army athletics in an attempt to find some sort of means of making the game happen, but so far to no avail.
The second game at risk of being cancelled has a little bit more riding on it. This Saturday, Navy and Air Force were set to play their annual rivalry game that has been a tradition between the two academies since 1972, with the rivalry itself dating back to 1960. The game is one in a series of games between the academies that determines the Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy, which is an annual trophy given to the service academy with the best record against one another.
I know that you could very easily say, “So what? It’s just a trophy.” This is true, but the revenue those games pull in is very real. The Navy vs. Air Force game for Saturday has already sold out, presenting a couple of major problems!
It’s still not a definite yet that these games will be cancelled, but let’s just say that the chances of those games actually happening are looking like a resounding slim-to-none right now.
