Coming off its most successful athletic year in school history, Loyola announced Wednesday that it will be leaving the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference after more than 20 years to join the Patriot League beginning in 2013-14. The decision to leave the MAAC had as much to do with academics as athletics, according to those involved in the process. “The Patriot League has been a very strong academic league, and at the same time it was very strong in athletics, so it was very appealing to us,” third-year athletic director Jim Paquette said.

Loyola Maryland's first-ever game in the Patriot League featured a smattering of fans inside, an abundance of snowflakes outside and an overwhelming showing of offensive futility. Still, despite putting themselves in a seemingly insurmountable hole against Navy, the host Greyhounds rallied behind standout guard Dylon Cormier (Cardinal Gibbons), who scored six of his game-high 20 points in overtime, as Loyola survived for a 63-57 win before an announced 536 at Reitz Arena. After failing to make a field goal at one point for a span of 18:34 - nearly an entire half's worth of play - Loyola rallied from a 13-point deficit with 5:16 left in regulation by shooting 12-for-22 from the field and forcing 16 turnovers in the second half.

Still, the 2-0 loss to the Black Knights (8-7-3 overall and 4-3-2 in the Patriot League) gnaws at the Midshipmen (15-4-0, 8-1-0) and coach Carin Gabarra. “We're happy to win and host, but at the same time, every game's a game, and that's a big game for us because it is Army-Navy,” she said Monday afternoon.
