For the Loyola Greyhounds, Cormier, one of the key players to Patsos’ Scheme, would not be considered a threat if it wasn’t for the great asset that he has in his teammate Jamaal Barney. In his senior year, Guard Jamal Barney has become the LeBron James of the Loyola Greyhounds and takes command. Elected Captain for the team, the squad looks to him to play well and to carry the team with his partner in crime Dylon Cormier. In his two seasons with the Greyhounds, Barney has led the team in scoring with 18.1 and 12.6 points per game respectively. This year, MAAC Coaches chose Barney for the All-MAAC Second Team. This year, against Drexel and UMBC, Barney showed great maturation in his game. He learned to play it slow – but not too slow. He has become more patient and he has learned not to force his shots; rather, he creates open shots and open lanes. Read the rest of this entry »
