Loyola's women's basketball team scored just seven first-half points on its way to one of the lowest point totals in the program's history and a 54-25 loss to Delaware yesterday at Reitz Arena.

The Greyhounds (3-4) made three field goals in the first half while shooting 13.6 percent.

Their seven first-half points tied the program's mark for first-half futility, and their 25 total points tied for the second fewest in Greyhounds history.

Lindsay Cobb's three-pointer with 16:11 left in the first half was Loyola's first score of the game and the Greyhounds' only points for the first 12:23.

Delaware (7-1) built a 19-point lead at the break and led by as many as 33 in the second.

Tiffany Young scored 12 points and Tyresa Smith added 10 for Delaware.

Katie Scherle had eight for Loyola.

Loyola scored seven first-half points against Maryland on March 1, 1974 and against Connecticut on Dec. 9, 1995.

The Greyhounds' lowest total output (22 points) came during the same game against the Huskies.
