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!

What: Cupid’s Undie Run
Where: Lucky’s Tavern
When: Saturday, February 14th// 2:00 pm
No naked mile has ever felt as good as Cupid’s Undie Run! Why? Because when you run this mile you’re helping raise money for the Children’s Tumor Foundation! Last year, the foundation raised $2.8 million dollars, all thanks to those ambitious runners who participated. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Who would want to run around in their underwear in the middle of February? Sure, the cold weather is unbearable, and maybe you’re not feeling so hot about your bod because you’ve been able to hide the winter pounds under baggy sweaters and winter coats, but once you and the hundreds of other bare-bodied runners cross the finish line, the only thing you’ll be thinking about is the good deed you’ve done, and the super fun pre-game and after party! This is your chance to spread the love with a good workout, great company, and incredible cause! Plus, you can flaunt your craziest Valentine’s Day get-up (or lack thereof)! Register for this crazy love-run here!
