Recap: Loyola-Chicago vs. MD-Eastern Shore

Tampa, FL (Sports Network) - Ben Averkamp posted a game-high 27 points and pulled down eight rebounds as he led the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers to a 62-46 win over the Fighting Hawks of MD-Eastern Shore as part of the South Florida Invitational at the USF Sun Dome.

Averkamp converted 11-of-17 shots from the floor for the Ramblers (3-2) as he became the 19th player in program history to score 1,000 points and pull down 500 rebounds in his career.

The Hawks (0-6) were paced by Troy Snyder with 13 points and six rebounds, although he made just one of his six three-point tries. Ishaq Pitt tacked on 10 points off the bench.

Both teams had trouble finding the basket in the first half, but even with just 9-of-24 shooting from the floor, including 1-of-10 on the perimeter, the Ramblers only trailed by two points at the break, 21-19. Loyola's ability to keep the game close was even more impressive given that it didn't make a single trip to the free-throw line over the first 20 minutes of play.

In the second half the Ramblers turned it around with 55.6 percent accuracy from the field and 11-of-14 at the charity stripe to cruise to the 16-point win.

The Hawks finished the afternoon shooting only 37.2 percent from the floor and were beaten on the glass, 38-23.
