Recap: Loyola-Maryland vs. Albany

Uncasville, CT (Sports Network) - A three-point play by Dylon Cormier in the waning moments of regulation were just what Loyola-Maryland needed as the Greyhounds slipped by the Albany Great Danes, 67-64, in the Springfield Bracket Championship Game of the 2012 Hall of Fame Tip-Off Classic at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Cormier finished with 16 points for the Greyhounds (4-1), while Erik Etherly led all scorers with 23 points and also pulled down seven rebounds as the team won a third straight outing. Anthony Winbush contributed with 12 points, seven boards and five assists in a reserve role.

The Great Danes (3-2) were paced by Blake Metcalf who recorded team highs with 12 points and eight boards as they had a two-game win streak snapped. Jacob Iati and Peter Hooley responded with 11 points apiece and DJ Evans 10 off the bench.

Albany led by a basket within the first minute of the meeting, but with the Greyhounds shooting 57.7 percent from the field in the period it was Loyola which maintained a 41-31 advantage at the break.

In the second half the Greyhounds managed to hit on only seven total field goals and missed on all four chances behind the three-point line, but in the end Cormier stepped up to give the team the points they needed.

Albany shot only 13-of-21 at the free-throw line and turned the ball over 15 times on the day.
