At the end of No. 1 seed Loyola's convincing 17-5 win in Saturday's NCAA tournament first-round contest at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore, Canisius won 14 faceoffs to the Greyhounds' 12. Through the first two quarters, however, it wasn't that close. Over that span, the Golden Griffins won 7-of-9 draws. After three quarters, Canisius was still humming at 10-of-15. It was a somewhat stunning outcome as the Golden Griffins had entered the contest winning just 48.5 percent (150-of-309)

Maryland has dominated its in-state rival, winning 19 of 20 contests since 1940. The Terps and Loyola last met on May 23, 1998 when Maryland, a No. 5 seed at the time, upset the No. 1 seed Greyhounds, 19-8, in an NCAA tournament semifinal. The Terps (12-5) are seeking their third national championship, but their first since 1975. They've lost in six consecutive finals appearances, including last year when they dropped a 9-7 decision to Virginia. Loyola, top-seeded again, is looking for the program's first NCAA crown and is making its second finals appearance after losing to Syracuse, 21-9, in 1990.

This year, however, for Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference champion Canisius, earning a spot meant finding a spark at just the right time. The Golden Griffins (6-7, 5-3 MAAC), who are set to play No. 1 seed Loyola on Saturday, suffered a discouraging four-game losing streak during the middle of the season, capped by a 14-2 loss to conference power Siena. The team was racked by injuries, especially at defense and the faceoff position, forcing coach Randy Mearns to experiment with his roster.
