| Walker Fuels Loyola (MD) Past Boston- Jan.17, 2017 (by Carl)|

Baltimore, MD - Loyola (MD) held off a late Boston University run with several important late game free throws, closing a 77-69 win. Boston opened conference play on a five game winning streak sitting atop the Patriot League standings. Loyola has been a little inconsistent to say the least, and started play at 2-3.
This game was different than many would have expected, even with Boston being on the road. Loyola got off to a great start and never looked back leading the entire game. The Greyhounds were led by sophomore 6-0 point guard Andre Walker (6'0''-PG)'s 35 points, on 9-of-12 from the three point line. Walker was scorching hot and at one point was 9-of-10 from three. Conference leading Boston battled throughout, but ultimately came up short in the end. Boston was led by senior 6-5 shooting guard Eric Fanning, who scored 27 points and chipped in 13 rebounds.
Fanning did his best to keep his team close throughout, but when a team finishes shooting 1-of-18 from three it was a miracle they only lost by eight. Fanning, a solidly built guard, bullied his way to the basket overpowering his defender. He has an array of isolation moves he uses to get into the lane, where he then uses his body and strength to get shots off at the rim. Fanning finished the game by going 13-of-15 from the free throw line. He has a knack for taking on contact and using his great body control to hang in the air and finish. He plays more like a point forward than just a guard. He sets the offense, as well as defends and rebounds at a high level. Fanning will be a candidate for Patriot League player of the year.
Other contributors for Boston were junior 6-8 forward Nick Havener who had 15 points and eight rebounds, and sophomore 6-1 point guard Kyle Foreman who finished with six points, four assists and three steals.
Walker bested his previous career high of 31, by dominating the game from deep. Walker was shooting from NBA range. He came off screens, shot pull-ups and even on the move. When Walker released from the catch and shoot, it was as good as automatic on the night. Walker scored in bunches and forced Boston to blitz him when he had the ball on the perimeter. This really opened the entire floor up for his teammates. The scoring guard proved that he will be a deadly force from downtown for the rest of the Patriot League to keep tabs on.
Senior 6-6 forward Jarred Jones did not have the best game shooting or on offense in general. He struggled with his decision making and had a hard time knocking down open mid range jumpers. Jones found other ways to contribute though. He made an impact on defense and used his vision to set up his teammates when he knew it wasn't his night to score. Jones may be Loyola's most important player on the team, so finding other ways to impact the game should provide dividends for the Greyhounds in the rest of conference play. Jones finished with 14 points, ten rebounds, eight assists, four steals and six turnovers.
The other main contributor for Loyola was junior 6-8 power forward Cam Gregory. The long and slender, but physical forward was a force in the paint for the Greyhounds. Gregory was active on the boards, as well as on defense. He recorded a steal that led to a monstrous open floor dunk over a defender in the first half, which invigorated the student section. Gregory finished with 15 points, twelve rebounds and three steals.
Boston will likely not shoot this poorly from three for the rest of the season during a game. They came into the game at 38%, so shooting 1-of-18 is an anomaly. Loyola will need to build on this win. They have a chance at being in the top half of this league and need to become more consistent.
Boston next faces Colgate at home on Wednesday while Loyola is at Bucknell, also on Wednesday.

| Rowsey Leads Marquette To Win Over DePaul- Jan.16, 2017 (by Carl)|
Milwaukee, WI - Before any of his Marquette teammates walked onto the Bradley Center court on Saturday afternoon, even before the bus bringing the game's opponent, the DePaul Blue Demons, arrived to the arena, Andrew Rowsey(5'10''-PG-94), was getting up shots by himself. Not only was Rowsey preparing himself for another Big East game, but he was also trying to drown out the memory of his performance in Marquette's previous game.

Milwaukee, WI - Before any of his Marquette teammates walked onto the Bradley Center court on Saturday afternoon, even before the bus bringing the game's opponent, the DePaul Blue Demons, arrived to the arena, Andrew Rowsey (5'10''-PG-94), was getting up shots by himself.
Not only was Rowsey preparing himself for another Big East game, but he was also trying to drown out the memory of his performance in Marquette's previous game. As Marquette worked overtime to defeat Seton Hall earlier in the week, Rowsey spent all but three of those 45 available minutes of playing time anchored to the bench. In those three minutes, Rowsey drew the anger of Marquette Coach Steve Wojciechowski by first allowing a basket at the rim after selling out to the player he was guarding and losing vision of the ball and then putting too much air under a pass that was easily stolen.
Different game, different result.
Getting an early call from Wojciechowski after starting point guard Markus Howard picked his second foul halfway through the first half, Rowsey responded by spearheading a Marquette offensive outburst that turned a 22-22 tie into a 52-31 Marquette advantage at the half in a game the Golden Eagles would go on to win 83-58. 'The Seton Hall game took a lot out of us,' said Wojciechowski. 'I thought we were heavy-legged to start the game. It's amazing how your energy level goes up when you make shots.'
Rowsey, generously listed at 5-10, is a score-first guard with deep shooting range. After misfiring on a corner three-point shot shortly after entering the game, the redshirt junior went on a three-point shooting tear connecting from all areas behind the arc in knocking down five straight three-point shots. Rowsey shot all this triples off the catch. After making his first three three-pointers with little DePaul resistance, he drained a three-point shot at the right break after a quick stop in transition and finished off his first-half work connecting on a fallback three-pointer from the left corner.
Asked after the game if his limited playing time against Seton Hall fueled his performance against DePaul, Rowsey said, 'Yeah, you could say that. I know my role. I know that each night it could be anybody. Coach told me that wasn't going to be my night, but to keep my head up because any game could be mine. So that's what I did, just looked forward to the next one.'
This was not the first time Rowsey, who transferred to Marquette after two all-conference seasons at UNC Asheville, has showed off the combustible side of his offensive game this season. While scoring over 20 or more points in each game against opponents Pittsburgh, Western Carolina and St. Francis (PA), Rowsey combined to make 13-of-27 shots from behind the three-point stripe.
Rowsey said that when he gets it going from distance, 'the ball feels like a rock and the basket looks like an ocean. You definitely have to ride that wave, and it's a fun wave to ride.
'We talked with Andrew (after the Seton Hall game) and he responded,' said Wojciechowski. 'His threes were momentum plays. I'm proud of the way Andrew played.'
Marquette also received a big boost in its end-of-the half run from fellow rotational player and graduate transfer Katin Reinhardt. A 6-6 wing with stops at UNLV and Southern California on his resume, Reinhardt scored 11 first-half points knocking down 4-of-5 shots from the floor including all three of his shots from distance. Unlike earlier in the season, when Reinhardt appeared to be breaking off plays to take open and contested shots often early in the shot clock, the southern California native has settled into his role off the bench and actually plays with better rhythm and more patience than when he began the season in the Marquette starting line-up.
Joining Rowsey and Reinhardt in making a huge contribution off the Marquette bench was redshirt junior Duane Wilson. A starter for much of his first two seasons in a Marquette uniform, the 6-2 Wilson has transitioned nicely into a back-up role. A two-way player listed among the Big East steal leaders, Wilson impacted the game in a number of ways scoring nine points, making 2-of-3 long distance shots and handing out a team and game-high seven assists.
Entering the game as the Big East leader in three-point shots made (9.9 per game) and second in three-point field goal percentage (.409), the Golden Eagles got off to a cold shooting day misfiring on four of their first five three-point tries. But Marquette heated up in a hurry after that making 11 of their next 15 shots from distance in the first half and finishing the game converting 13-of-27 to increase its team percentage from behind the three-point arc.
Asked to explain his team's success from long distance, Wojciechowski cited his players' unselfishness and passing ability. 'I saw great ball movement and great ball movement led to some open shots,' said the Marquette coach. 'Guys were able to set their feet and shoot in-rhythm shots.' He went on to call his team's play in the last ten minutes of the first half 'some of the most unselfish basketball we've played all year.'
With the mostly strong play of Rowsey, Reinhardt and Wilson off the bench since the start of the Big East season, Wojciechowski said he feels confident in his team's scoring ability regardless of the particular player mix at the time. 'One of the things we talk about on a daily basis is on every possession we want the ball to find the best shot,' said Wojciechowski. 'I think our guys bought into that tonight and hopefully that will continue.'
Marquette takes its 12-5 overall record and 3-2 conference record to Indianapolis on Monday to take on the top-25 ranked Butler Bulldogs. DePaul also returns to action on Monday when it travels to New York to take on St. John's.

| Princeton Survives Quaker Comeback- Jan.8, 2017 (by Carl)|
Princeton, NJ - Heading into the second half, it looked like the Princeton Tigers would cruise to victory in their Ivy League opener against arch-rival Penn. It turned out tougher than that but Princeton was still able to hold on for a 61-52 victory.

Princeton, NJ - Heading into the second half, it looked like the Princeton Tigers would cruise to victory in their Ivy League opener against arch-rival Penn. It turned out tougher than that but Princeton was still able to hold on for a 61-52 victory.
The Tigers' leading scorer, Steven Cook, struggled with foul trouble and was held scoreless, yet Princeton led 34-17 at he half behind a combination of Penn's poor shooting and the outstanding play off the bench of Princeton's 6-4 junior guard, Amir Bell.
But with less than seven minutes to go, the score was tied at 44. What happened? Penn started to make shots. The architect of the comeback was 6-1 junior guard, Darnell Foreman. Foreman scored a game-high 17 points, many of which came in transition off a steal. 'That kid Foreman was just running right down our throats,' Princeton Head Coach Mitch Henderson said. 'He was really hard to guard.'
The Quakers, who went 0-for-7 behind the arc in the first half, hit 7-for-9 from distance in the second half. Fortunately for the Tiger faithful, after a much needed time-out with 6:49 to go, Princeton regained its composure and pulled away behind the stellar play of 6-1 sophomore guard, Devin Cannady (6'1''-G).
Despite going 0-for-6 from behind the arc, Cannady has great mechanics and is able to create his shot off the dribble. 'I thought the difference, in particular at the end of the clock, Cannady made a couple of really big plays,' Penn Head Coach Steve Donahue said. Princeton's most important player on the night was 6-5 sophomore guard/forward, Myles Stephens. The New Jersey native went just 2-for-8 from the field, but hit a huge three pointer down the stretch and pulled down a game high ten rebounds (four offensive).
Stephens' work defensively was a big reason Penn's star freshman, AJ Brodeur, had his worst game of the year. Last week's Ivy co-player and rookie of the week was doubled constantly and struggled at the foul line (4-of-10). Brodeur finished with a season-low six points but impressed all in attendance with his toughness and combination of quickness, strength, and jumping ability. The Quakers have something special in AJ Brodeur.
The loss drops Penn to 6-6 on the season ahead of January 13th's match-up at home with last year's league champions, Yale. Princeton extends their win streak against Penn to six games, improves to 8-6 on the season and faces Brown at home, also on the 13th.
