The Hounds will take on their familiar crosstown rivals, just a couple of days after taking down Cornell in the Hounds’ home opener.
Can’t make it to Reitz Arena for the game but still want to see the game? Not a problem! This game will be the first of three this season to be televised on MASN, the home station of the Baltimore Orioles and the Washington Nationals.
Even if you don’t live in an area that receives MASN but still want to watch the game, you can. The game will be simulcast on SNY for the New York, New Jersey, Connecticut area, and will be broadcast on the Patriot League network.

New England has been surging after a rough start to the season, but until yesterday, they were still number two in the AFC to the Broncos, and just above the Colts for number three.
However, with the impressive display the Patriots put on against the Colts in their own house last night, and the Broncos upset loss with some injuries thrown in to the Rams, it’s hard to argue against the Patriots as the top team in the AFC.

Dan Duquette, who is the executive vice president of baseball operations for the Orioles, was given the award on Monday after his leadership in the front office helped the O’s to their best season in 17 years.
Duquette won the award back in 1992 as well, when he was the general manager for the Montreal Expos.
Big signings and roster manipulation carried out by Duquette were crucial to the O’s success this season. Not only did Duquette manage to sign big names like Nelson Cruz and Andrew Miller, he was also able to find players that were disregarded by other teams, players he knew had loads of potential.

Just two days after making the announcement that Austin Davis, the 2nd-year gunslinger from the University of Southern Mississippi, would continue to be the starter for the St. Louis Rams, Fisher changed his mind and made the decision to start veteran quarterback Shaun Hill instead.
Davis has been the starter for 8 of the 9 games for the Rams this season after Hill went down in the season opener. In those 8 starts, Davis has gone 3-5, throwing for 2,001 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions. Davis currently has a season passer rating of 85.1 and a QBR of 37.6.
The glaring issue for Davis is the fact that he has had many costly turnovers in his last couple of games. This past week against the division opponent Cardinals, Davis threw 2 interceptions and lost a fumble in the 4th quarter. But what 1st-year starter isn’t going to struggle against the Cardinals defense?

Loyola’s 2014 men’s soccer season ended with a heartbreaker. The Hounds lost 1-0 to Patriot League opponent Lafayette on a penalty kick in the 102nd minute.
The team finishes their 2014 campaign with an overall record of 5-8-4, and a conference record of 2-5-2.
The senior class for the Hounds fittingly finished by leaving it all out on the field. Joseph Cahalan almost put the Hounds up in regulation time, but his shot went off the crossbar, and Connor Thompson almost won it for the Hounds in the first OT period, rifling a shot towards the right side of the net, only to be barely denied by Lafayette goalkeeper Alexander Leavy.

The men’s basketball team kicked off the season with an exhibition game at home against Bridgewater College.
The team looked strong as the Hounds won 71-49, and did a good job of spreading around the scoring as four players found themselves in double-digits in the scoring column.
The real work starts next week as the Hounds kick off the regular season with a game on the road against Texas Tech.

Every so often we witness a story that gives us a reason to believe and a reason to stand up for our fellow humans, and can remind us why we love sports the way we do.
This story lives through 18-year-old Mount St. Joseph’s student, Lauren Hill. Lauren has a special dream, a dream to play college basketball. As she puts it, “I’ve just always wanted to step out onto a college court, looking down at my shoes stepping out on that wooden floor, and feeling the vibration of the crowd. It’s just what I’ve dreamed.”
That dream became impossibly difficult after Lauren was diagnosed with brain cancer. Her tumor is inoperable.

The Royals defended their home turf in game 6 to force a game 7 in the World Series, thanks to a 10-0 rout of the Giants.
Kansas City never game San Francisco a chance in game 6, as they put 7 runs on the board in the bottom of the 2nd inning, batting through the entire lineup.
Big World Series blowout wins aren’t new to the Royals. They won their only franchise championship in 1985 with an 11-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.
