February 03, 1994|By Milton Kent | Milton Kent,Sun Staff Writer

The Loyola women's basketball team won its sixth straight game -- its ninth victory in the past 11 games -- beating Hofstra, 62-45, at Reitz Arena.

The six-game winning streak is the longest in 13 years and moved the Greyhounds (9-8) above the .500 level for the first time in 41 games, since the fifth game of the 1992-93 season.

Loyola's Patty Stoffey had a game-high 22 points, and moved past Kathy O'Halloran into second place on the all-time scoring list, with 1,434 points. Stoffey, who is third in the nation in scoring, is just 131 points behind Lorrie Schenning, the school's career-scoring leader.

The Greyhounds led 31-19 at halftime, but the Dutchwomen (10-8) cut the Loyola lead to seven at 33-26 early in the second half.

However, Greyhound forward Camille Joyner scored on a put-back and Lynn Albert sank a three-pointer to push the margin to 17, sealing the victory.
