LOYOLA UNIVERSITY MARYLAND
• Loyola is in its 45th season as a women’s basketball program and its 35th year of competition as an NCAA Division I program. Prior to 1981, the Greyhounds competed in the Mid-Atlantic Region of the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW).
• The 2013-14 season was Loyola’s inaugural year as a member of the Patriot League.
Prior to joining the League, Loyola was a member of the Northeast Conference for nine seasons (1980-89), before joining the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference in 1989. The Greyhounds posted an overall record of 196-205 in MAAC games and won two MAAC Championships, in 1993 and 1994.

THINGS TO KNOW
• Loyola will host its first-ever Patriot League Championship matchup Monday night when Navy travels to Reitz Arena for the quarterfinal round at 7 p.m.
• Most recently, the Greyhounds defeated Holy Cross, 58-45, on Senior Night to earn the No. 3 seed in the 2015-16 Patriot League Championship.
• With a record of 11-7 throughout the Patriot League regular season, Loyola secured a bye for the first round of the 2015-16 Patriot League Championship. This will mark the first year since 2010-11 that the Greyhounds have secured a quarterfinal game, and the first time since 2010-11 that they have finished among the top-3 seeds. 
• Loyola is 7-6 as the No. 3 seed in conference championships, while going 12-6 all-time in the quarterfinal round.
• The Greyhounds closed out the regular season on a high note, stringing together four-straight regular-season victories for the first time since the 2011-12 season when Loyola won six-consecutive Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) matchups.
  Seniors Colleen Marshall and Jeneh Perry were named to All-Patriot League teams last week. Marshall garnered spots on both the first team and All-Defensive Team, while Perry was voted to the League’s third team.
• Marshall, a unanimous first-team selection, became Loyola’s first-ever All-Patriot League First Team honoree and the first Greyhound to earn first-team honors since 2012. She was the only League player to earn a spot on the first team and the defensive team after picking up All-Patriot League Second Team accolades last season.
• Perry, making her first-ever appearance on an all-League team, became Loyola’s first forward to earn an all-conference honor since Lauren Troupe (2002-06) garnered All-MAAC First Team accolades in 2005-06.

SERIES HISTORY VERSUS NAVY
• Loyola and Navy will meet for the 23rd time when the two teams take the court Monday.
• The Midshipmen lead the series, 16-6, including a 4-2 advantage in Patriot League play.
• For the past two seasons, Loyola and Navy have split the series, with the home team winning each respective game.
• In the inaugural season as Patriot League foes, Navy swept Loyola, winning in Alumni Hall, 67-44, and in Baltimore, Maryland, 74-50.

LAST TIME OUT
• Loyola used a strong second quarter to pull away from Holy Cross and hold on for the 58-45 win Wednesday evening on Senior Night in Reitz Arena.
• Seniors Jeneh Perry and Colleen Marshall led the Greyhounds with 14 points, while Perry grabbed a game-high 12 rebounds for her ninth double-double of the season. Sophomore Bri Betz-White added 10 points and six assists.
• With 7:25 to play in the second quarter, Holy Cross led by as many as eight points, 20-12, but Marshall sparked a 10-2 run that ended with a layup by Perry to knot the score at 22 with 2:30 to play in the frame.
• The two teams traded baskets over the next minute and a half to once again find themselves in a tied ballgame, 24-24, but Perry dodged the double team and gave Loyola the field goal it needed to control the lead for the remainder of the contest.
• Loyola shot 40-percent or better for the eighth time this season, outshooting Holy Cross 40.0 — 35.8 percent.
• For the fifth-straight game, Loyola’s defense took better care of the ball than its opponent. The Greyhounds forced the Crusaders to commit 20 turnovers, while holding a 10-6 advantage in steals.

LOYOLA IN THE PATRIOT LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP
• The Greyhounds are making their third appearance in the Patriot League Championship since joining the conference in 2013-14. They are also seeking their first win, after falling 58-46 last year to Lafayette in Easton, Pennsylvania and 40-35 at Boston University the previous season.
For the first time since joining the League, Loyola finished third and earned a bye for the first round.
• The winner of Monday’s Loyola-Navy matchup will go on to the semifinal round to face the winner of the Bucknell-American game on Friday.
