Half-time Update; Stags Lead 24-20

Fairfield has allowed Loyola to climb back into this game and the Stags head into the half with just a four point lead. The Stags led by as much as 13, 24-11, with 6:50 left in the half, but a nine point run by the Greyhounds to end the half brought Loyola back into the game.

The Stags are led by Michael Van Schaick, who has 9 points and Greg Nero who has 7 points.

Loyola is led by Gerald Brown who has 10 points to lead all scorers. Only three Greyhounds have scored in the game, as Marquis Sullivan has 7 points and Omari Isreael has 3.

The Greyhounds shooting has improved slightly, but is still a very low 27.3 percent. Fairfield has dropped its percentage throughout the game and it now sits at 34.6%. The Stags are also just 3-for-8 from beyond the three point arc, with Van Schaick scoring two of the three and O'Sullivan adding the third.

Fairfield has fewer turnovers and more rebounds than Loyola. The Stags are outrebounding the Greyhounds 16-15. Fairfield has 6 turnovers (5 coming in the final 7:43) while Loyola has 11 turnovers. The Stags have turned those turnovers into 11 points.

More to come in the second half.
