Thursday's entry is the third installment of a week-long series taking a look at each of the seven Division I programs in this state according to their order of finish from last season. Check back on Friday for a preview of Mount St. Mary's, and The Sun's lacrosse preview is slated to be published on Friday, Feb. 17. This is Loyola's turn. Overview: Under coach Charley Toomey, the Greyhounds have never finished with a sub-.500 record by finishing 8-5 in 2011. But the team fell to Fairfield in the semifinals of the Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament and has now gone two years since winning the league in 2009.

Friday's entry is the last of a series taking a look at each of the seven Division I programs in this state according to their order of finish from last season. The Sun's lacrosse preview is slated to be published on Friday, Feb. 7. This is Loyola's turn.

The Loyola Greyhounds did so many things right Saturday against Notre Dame in the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic. They took away easy scoring opportunities from the Fighting Irish, they forced them to shoot with a weak hand more often than not, they counterpunched when Notre Dame had all the momentum, and they frustrated and hounded midfielder Zach Brenneman, one of the best players in the country. But superior talent has a habit of wiping away both the sins and the sloppy play of the victor, and that's exactly what happened at M&T Bank Stadium.

To hear Jarred Jones tell it, the 6-foot-7 sophomore swingman agreed to play for the Loyola men's basketball team because he was drawn to Jimmy Patsos' coaching style, not repelled by it. “I've been used to coaches all my life like Patsos that yelled at you,” said Jones, a Havre de Grace native and John Carroll graduate. “I was kind of used to that, which is probably why I picked him to come here and be my coach.” Patsos' tenure with the Greyhounds ended in April when he decided to become the head coach at Siena.

Hassan Fofana looks back on his experiment at the University of Maryland with no regrets and imagines life beyond cozy Loyola College with a smile as he charts the possibilities. One day, Fofana wants to make his parents proud by earning a degree in international business and starting his own company. He might take over his father's clothing business back home in the West African nation of Togo. Then there is the professional basketball career he could find overseas after he helps Loyola become a power in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.

Go ahead, tell me who's had a better year around here than the Loyola Greyhounds. Adam Jones with the hot start and the new $85.5 million contract? Ray Rice, who gets to prop up his feet and miss team workouts and wait for the Ravens to make him a rich man, too? I'll Have Another with a Kentucky Derby and Preakness win and a shot at the Triple Crown? Me, I'd argue for the 'Hounds, who hit a trifecta of their own and had the kind of year most small schools only dream about.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- No one remotely affiliated with the Loyola lacrosse team wanted to beat the Syracuse Orangemen more than did freshman Gewas Schindler.Schindler grew up in the shadow of the Carrier Dome, and he didn't disappoint his banner-waving friends and family in attendance yesterday for his homecoming. Schindler led Loyola with three goals and fellow Syracuse native Brian Duffy added a goal and two assists, but the Greyhounds still fell to Syracuse, 13-11."It was an extremely big game for me with my friends and family here," Schindler said.

The Loyola men's basketball team has played some great games as they've risen to the top of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference standings. Sunday's game at Reitz Arena will not be regarded as one of them. Down by just four at the half, the Greyhounds (19-6, 12-3) were out-rebounded, out-hustled and out-everything-elsed in a MAAC loss to Fairfield (15-10, 10-4) 68-51. Erik Etherly and Robert Olson lead the Greyhounds with 17 points apiece. Rakim Sanders led a very balanced Fairfield team with 13 points.

The confidence dwindles as the losses pile up for Loyola.The Greyhounds, who haven't been favored to win in two months, returned to Reitz Arena for their only home date in a five-game, 18-day span last night, but they needed more than friendly rims to stay with Siena. The Saints scored 12 straight points before and after halftime, and were never threatened in the second half of their 71-57 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference victory.It was the fifth straight loss for Loyola (2-17, 1-9), which needs a couple of upsets to avoid the worst record at Evergreen in 56 years.

Midfielder Cameron Flint sprinted 40 yards down the field off a faceoff and scored on a low shot 16 seconds into overtime as No. 1 Denver defeated No. 8 Loyola, 13-12, before an announced 2,478 Saturday at Ridley Field. The goal spoiled a furious comeback by Loyola (9-3, 5-1 ECAC) which trailed 8-3 at the half and had tied the game on a goal from senior midfielder Sean O'Sullivan from 15 yards out with 2:39 left in regulation. After Flint connected in the sudden-death OT, he was swarmed by teammates near the back of the goal as the Pioneers (10-2, 5-0)

In most big-time Division I college sports, a relatively small school like Loyola University Maryland doesn't have a chance. It has fewer than 4,000 undergraduate students, and the Jesuit school puts an emphasis on academic excellence, not training future pro athletes. No major television contracts, no rich alumni out offering no-show jobs to recruits - it's not even the best-known school in the U.S. with "Loyola University" in its name. But what Loyola University Maryland does have is a lot of really good and well-coached lacrosse player who this past weekend brought home from Foxborough, Mass., something the school has never seen before - a men's lacrosse national title.

Saturday's NCAA tournament quarterfinal game against Denver in Annapolis should be a momentous occasion for the Loyola program. It will also be an unfamiliar setting. The last time the Greyhounds had advanced to the quarterfinal round was 2001. That year, they edged Georgetown, 11-9, in the first round before losing to eventual national champion Princeton, 8-7, in the next round. This season's Loyola squad is 15-1 and the top seed in the tournament, but relatively inexperienced in the postseason.

Despite facing a short week and having to travel Tuesday to Denver for Wednesday night's start of the Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament, top-seeded Loyola is eager to put the memory of its first loss of the season behind it. Junior long-stick midfielder Scott Ratliff, the league's Defensive Player of the Year, acknowledged Monday that Saturday's 10-9 overtime loss to No. 8 Johns Hopkins is still a little raw. “I think it's...

The Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team wasn't ready to cede its foothold in Baltimore just yet. Despite losing three of their last four games, the No. 13 Blue Jays maintained their lofty local status as they knocked off top-ranked Loyola, 10-9, in overtime Saturday at Ridley Athletic Complex. Sophomore midfielder Rob Guida's one-timer off a pass from junior attackman Zach Palmer with 2.3 seconds left in the extra session helped Johns Hopkins improve to 10-3 and tag the Greyhounds with their first loss in 13 games this season.
