Sports Saturdays: Dude, Where’s My Racecar?

Saturday, February 28th, 2015 by Justin Thomas

Sports Saturday NASCAR just turned into an Ashton Kutcher comedy down in Morrow, Georgia as Team Xtreme Racing driver Travis Kvapil is left saying, “Dude, where’s my car?”

Kvapil’s No. 44 car was in a trailer in a hotel parking lot in Morrow, Georgia in preparation for this weekend’s race at Atlanta Motor Speedway. At 5:34am, the trailer, with the car and spare parts inside, was stolen.

Team Xtreme now finds themselves without a car for the race this weekend, and had to withdraw from the race Friday morning.

Kvapil reported the theft through Twitter while keeping a good sense of humor about him.

“Wow. Anyone near Atlanta find my stolen Cup car let me know! Unreal,” Kvapil first tweeted at 9:13am. (more…)

Greyhounds Defeat Hopkins in Thrilling OT Game

Thursday, February 26th, 2015 by Justin Thomas

Sports Talk The 14th-ranked Loyola women’s lacrosse team battled against rival 18th-ranked Johns Hopkins at Ridley Athletic Complex on Wednesday night and emerged with a 12-10 overtime victory.

Seniors Hannah Schmitt and Annie Thomas headlined the Hounds’ success for the game. Schmitt led the Hounds with seven points on four goals and three assists. Kara Burke and Sydney Thomas, both seniors, added two goals and an assist a piece.

Annie Thomas, however, put herself in the record books thanks to an early assist to Burke, her 100th career assist. Thomas became the first Greyhound and just the 50th player in NCAA history to record 100 goals and 100 assists in a career. (more…)

Bringing Football Back To LA?

Monday, February 23rd, 2015 by Justin Thomas

Sports Talk After an announcement on Thursday from the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders, we learned that there are three NFL teams considering the move to Hollywood from their current cities.

These three teams are the St. Louis Rams (which we already knew about), the Oakland Raiders (which we assumed), and the San Diego Chargers.

The Rams began pursuing a plan to possibly move to LA a little over a month back, but the Raiders and Chargers just sprung this on the NFL world.

Chargers fans and the people of the great city of San Diego are shocked and slightly betrayed by this news, especially since San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer created a task force with the sole purpose of finding ways to keep the Chargers in San Diego. (more…)

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!

Loyola Routs Lafayette in Patriot League Matchup

Thursday, February 12th, 2015 by Justin Thomas

10771740In a dominating effort on both sides of the court, Loyola cruised to a 62-43 win over Patriot League opponent Lafayette on Wednesday night at Reitz Arena.

Tyler Hubbard and Franz Rassman led the scoring for the Hounds, but the real story was the suffocating team defense from the Hounds.

The Greyhounds started the second half strong, going on a 14-0 early in the half, extending their lead to 28. At one point in the game, the Hounds led the Leopards by 30 points. (more…)

How The West Was Won…Possibly

Monday, February 9th, 2015 by Justin Thomas

Sports Talk The NBA has been buzzing after Commissioner Adam Silver’s comments regarding the possibility of an adjusted playoff system. It’s looking like adjustment might be necessary seeing as some great Western Conference teams and players may miss the playoffs.

In the Western Conference, there are five teams that are separated by less than eight games, and two of those teams will not get to make the playoffs even though they are all above a .500 record. Whereas in the Eastern Conference, the seven and eight-seed teams are both at least seven games below the .500 mark.

Currently, New Orleans and MVP candidate Anthony Davis, and Oklahoma City sit on the outside looking in. That could very easily change with the Clippers losing Blake Griffin for an indefinite amount of time due to elbow surgery to treat a staph infection. (more…)

CFB Playoff Report: Year One

Monday, December 8th, 2014 by Justin Thomas

Sports Talk We are officially one year in to the new college football playoff system with its new committee, and one thing is very clear…clarity is much needed!

Going into the final week of the college football regular season, the rankings had 10-1 TCU at number 3, 12-0 Florida State at number 4, 11-1 Ohio State at number 5, and 10-1 Baylor at number 6.

All 5 teams won their last game of the season, however the kicker in this whole situation is that TCU and Baylor’s final games didn’t include a conference championship game due to the fact that it doesn’t exist in the BIG 12.

The final rankings completely shafted the BIG 12 Conference, as TCU and Baylor were bumped back to the 6 and 5 spot respectively, leaving them on the outside looking in to number 3 Florida State and number 4 Ohio State. (more…)
