Final Stats

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – The College of William & Mary scored on a fast-break layup in the final seconds of regulation to steal a 72-71 season-opening victory from the Loyola University Maryland women’s basketball team Friday night at Kaplan Arena.

Newcomers Colleen Marshall and Bri Betz-White contributed 28 and 14 points, respectively, as Loyola (0-1) recorded 10 3-point field goals, which is tied for seventh most in the program’s single-game record books.

In a matchup that included 10 lead changes and four tied scores, the Greyhounds shot 41-percent from the floor (25-of-61).

William & Mary (1-0) led by as much as nine points with 7:45 to play, before senior captain Steph Smith knocked down a pair of charity stipe points, 62-55.

Smith’s free throw success sparked an offensive fire amongst the Greyhounds, as Marshall went on to score five points on a 3-point field goal and a set of free throws. William & Mary countered with a single charity-stripe point, but an offensive foul by the Tribe turned the ball over to Loyola.

The Greyhounds capitalized on the Tribe’s misfortune, as junior Diana Logan hit a shot from downtown to pull Loyola within five, 68-63, with just over five minutes remaining.

William & Mary attempted to duplicate on its end, but Marshall grabbed the board and returned the ball to Greyhound territory. Junior Jeneh Perry put in work under the basket for a layup, 68-65, forcing the Tribe into a timeout situation.

Coming back, Loyola scored eight unanswered points and took the lead on Logan’s second 3-point field goal of the game, 71-68.

The Greyhounds held a one-point advantage with one minute remaining, after a set of free throws by William & Mary’s Marlena Tremba, 71-70. The Tribe used a fast break layup with four seconds remaining to steal the season opener from Loyola.

Perry pulled down a game-high seven offensive rebounds, grabbing 13 total boards during the matchup.

The Greyhounds capitalized on the Tribe’s 27 turnovers, scoring 39 points off William & Mary’s misfortunes.

Loyola’s freshmen class of Betz-White, Karley Kolberg and Carly Monzo all saw playing time.

The Greyhounds return to action on Sunday to take on non-conference rival UMBC in Catonsville, Maryland. Tipoff is scheduled for 5 p.m.
