Loyola's men's basketball team surrendered an early lead to Marist last night and lost for the 26th straight time, 64-48, extending the nation's longest Division I men's losing streak and inching closer to the all-time record for consecutive losses.

Grambling holds the men's Division I mark for consecutive losses with 33, from Dec. 6, 1999, to Dec. 16, 2000.

The Greyhounds built an early lead for the second straight game but faltered in the second half in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.

Loyola (0-13, 0-4 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) closed the first half on an 11-2 spurt and took a 10-point lead into halftime. But Marist (4-9, 2-2) quickly cut into that margin, going on a 10-1 run to cut the lead to one in the first few minutes of the second half.

The Red Foxes took the lead for good with 13:15 remaining. The Greyhounds went cold, shooting 20 percent in the second half and went 0-for-13 from three-point range.

Goucher 81, Apprentice 76: The Gophers improved to 7-5 behind 20 points from Isaac Brooks III. Brooks hit seven of 12 shots from the field, including five of eight from three-point range and the Gophers shot 60 percent in the second half to overcome a first-half deficit.
