BALTIMORE -- Dylon Cormier made 7 of 8 shots from the field and finished with a game-high 19 points and six assists to lead Loyola (Md.) past Marist 72-58 in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference matchup Thursday night.
Trailing 43-31 at halftime, Marist cut the lead to single digits, 52-43, on Anell Alexis' layup with 13:01 left to play, but that was the closest the Red Foxes would get. Loyola answered with a 15-8 run to extend its lead to 67-51 with 5:22 remaining.
The Greyhounds shot 60.4 percent (29 of 48) and led by as many as 17 points.
Alex and Adam Kemp scored 14 points apiece for Marist (4-14, 1-6), which has lost eight straight.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
