Harvey's 34 points carry Greyhounds to win

November 17, 2008|By From Staff Reports

Brett Harvey poured in a career-high 34 points, the final two coming on a pair of free throws with four seconds left for a three-point lead, as Loyola beat Tennessee State, 73-70, yesterday at Reitz Arena.

Harvey scored 12 of Loyola's final 13 points to carry the Greyhounds (1-1) to the win. He tallied nine field goals - six from three-point range - and made 10 of his 12 free-throw attempts. The first of the 12 were three-pointers and the final six came at the charity stripe.

After sophomore guard made just one of his two free-throw attempts with 28 ticks left to give Loyola a 71-70 lead, Tennessee State's Parker Smith lost the ball on the baseline out of bounds with four seconds left. Loyola inbounded the ball to Harvey, who connected on both for the final margin. A shot by the Tigers' Emmanuel Gaiter from 25 feet clanged off the backboard and the front of the rim as time expired.

Loyola left immediately after the the game to depart for Boston, where it will meet Boston College tonight in the first round of the Dick's Sporting Goods NIT Season Tip-Off. The game will be live on ESPNU at 7 o'clock.
