ASG: What’s The Point of All The Points?

Monday, February 16th, 2015 by Justin Thomas

Sports Talk In last night’s 2015 NBA All-Star Game from Madison Square Garden, the Western Conference All-Stars defeated the Eastern Conference All-Stars in a respectably low-scoring 163-158 contest. This was the highest scoring ASG in NBA history.

Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook received the ASG MVP award for his 41-point effort for the West, just one point shy of tying the all-time ASG record set by Wilt Chamberlin of 42 points.

This game featured everything from 3-pointers to dunks to more dunks to a rare appearance on the court from Carmelo Anthony (a tease for Knicks fans everywhere). The game has absolutely no meaning and purpose other than good fun through an offensive showcase. Nobody really cares to see any sort of defense or meaning in a game, right? (more…)

Sports Saturdays: Love the Hounds this Valentine’s Day

Saturday, February 14th, 2015 by Justin Thomas

10773694 10767986WHAT: Loyola Men’s Lax vs. Penn State; Loyola Women’s Basketball vs. Boston University

WHEN: Saturday, February 14th, 12:00pm; 2:00pm

WHERE: Ridley Athletic Complex; Reitz Arena

This Valentine’s Day, spend some time with your one true love…the Loyola Greyhounds!

The Hounds will be on display first at noon, when the men’s lacrosse team will take on 17th ranked Penn State, then at 2pm when the women’s basketball team will play against Boston University.

Loyola men’s lacrosse opened their season last week with a tough 13-12 loss at home against no. 9 Virginia. They now have the chance to right the ship against Penn State in the two teams’ 52nd overall meeting. Sending a little love the Hounds’ way for the game surely can’t hurt.

The women’s basketball team was right in the middle of the pack in the Patriot League before going on the four-game losing streak they’re on now. However, the Hounds round out their season with five more conference games, three of which are at home. Almost all of their remaining games are against teams that reside in the the lower half of the Patriot League standings. Be sweet and spread hearts all around for the Hounds at 2pm.

Show your love for the green and grey this Valentine’s Day, and be the Hounds’ valentine!
