Loyola Maryland announced Thursday morning that it received a $3.2 million gift from an anonymous donor for the construction of a new tennis facility at Ridley Athletic Complex in honor of the university's longtime tennis coach. The center -- which will be named after Rick McClure, who has coached the men's and women's teams since 1979 and is a member of the school's Hall of Fame -- will feature eight lighted courts, a locker room, seating for fans, and a parking lot. The complex will give the institution the opportunity to play host to Patriot League championships and other tournaments.

Coaches love to play head games. When Loyola coach Charley Toomey was asked about his upcoming game with Johns Hopkins, minutes after his team had beaten Lehigh on Sunday, he mumbled something about having to watch game film. Now, that's funny. No. 1 Loyola and No. 6 Hopkins are within walking distance of each other, and they recruit the same players. Yet, Toomey said he has to look at film before he can go into detail about the Blue Jays. There is nothing these two coaches and programs don't know about each other.

Loyola Maryland announced Thursday that it will play at Maryland next season in a rematch of the 2012 national title game, giving the Greyhounds' schedule a needed boost in the absence of perennial rival Johns Hopkins. The Greyhounds and Terps will meet on Wednesday, April 8 at Byrd Stadium in College Park, with the game time to be announced later. "In a year that we are scrimmaging Johns Hopkins and not playing them during the regular season, it was important to us to add a strong RPI and strength-of-schedule nonconference game," Loyola coach Charley Toomey said via email.

The Loyola men's soccer team absorbed its first loss of the season Saturday night when UMBC secured a 3-1 victory at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore. It was a disappointing result, but it doesn't dilute the the Greyhounds's 5-1-1 start. "I think if you look to the start of our season, you've got to say that it's been a very good start," coach Mark Mettrick said Monday. "We're 5-1-1. We played some away games in very difficult places. So, I'm pleased with the start. "I think, overall, it's been a good beginning of the season for us. We realize now that it's all about the Patriot League and getting ready for our conference games.

Top-ranked Loyola expended a considerable amount of energy in Wednesday night's 14-9 victory over host Towson. But the Greyhounds insisted that they will have plenty of gas in the tank for Saturday's showdown with No. 3 Maryland at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore. “I don't think so,” senior attackman Mike Sawyer said when asked if there's any concern over not being able to match the Terps' emotions. “We've got two days, and I think we can regroup and work on the things we need to and come out with some energy.

Being in Baltimore apparently has its privileges for Loyola. Not only did the Greyhounds have to make just a 34-mile trip from their campus to Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis for Saturday's NCAA tournament quarterfinal against Denver, but they also got a visit from Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. In a video posted by the school, the 13-time Pro Bowler and two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year spoke to the players before Wednesday's practice and encouraged them to play with passion and cooperation.

Maryland and Loyola will meet next spring in a rematch of last season's NCAA Division I men's lacrosse championship game, according to Patrick Stevens of The Washington Times . Coach Charley Toomey of the Greyhounds, who beat the Terps, 9-3, in Foxborough, Mass., for the school's first-ever D-I national title in any sport, said he's "pretty sure it's a done deal" the teams will play Feb. 23 at Ridley Athletic Complex. According to the Times, the game is a byproduct of the Terps' department-wide ban on playing Georgetown in any sport after the schools failed to reach an agreement to revive their men's basketball series (those teams haven't met in the regular season since 1993)

Loyola's rise in the rankings this week is a positive sign for the Eastern College Athletic Conference, but the No. 8 Greyhounds aren't the only evidence of the league's competitiveness. No. 6 Denver went to the Final Four last spring and routed then-No. 6 Penn State, 14-6, on Saturday. No. 15 Fairfield joins Loyola as two of five remaining teams in Division I with undefeated records. Bellarmine knocked off then-No. 18 Dartmouth, 12-10, on March 6, Air Force edged Army, 9-8, in overtime, and even No. 19 Ohio State - which has dropped two straight - has a significant win against Denver.

Johns Hopkins and Loyola have put their annual men's lacrosse rivalry on hold for the 2015 season. Unable to find a Saturday date suitable for both sides, the Charles Street rivals agreed to take a break next season and resume their annual series in February 2016 at Ridley Athletic Complex. With the Blue Jays moving to the Big Ten for 2015 and the Greyhounds playing in the Patriot League this past spring, Loyola coach Charley Toomey said he and Johns Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala were intent on keeping the game on a Saturday rather than participating in a midweek contest during their conference schedules.

One minute and 46 seconds were left in the game when Albany delivered another magic moment. Attackman Miles Thompson threw a quick pass to younger brother Lyle, who hurled a pass across the crease to cousin Ty Thompson, who flicked in a goal. And then there was one final trick: Unseeded Albany made No. 3 seed Loyola Maryland disappear from the NCAA Division I lacrosse tournament. The Thompson trio accounted for 11 goals and seven assists, and getting 13 saves from goalie Blaze Riorden, the Great Danes upset Loyola, 13-6, in the first round of tournament play Saturday at Ridley Athletic Complex.

In a move that will surprise no one, Loyola Maryland defenseman Joe Fletcher has spent a considerable amount of time watching film of Albany attackman Lyle Thompson, and the Greyhounds senior knows that the tape doesn't lie. He also knows that the tape isn't entirely truthful. It can't capture the full scope of trying to shadow the Great Danes junior, who has already tied UMBC attackman Steve Marohl's single-season NCAA record of 114 points. “That's what makes him, him,” Fletcher said Wednesday afternoon.

Graham Savio picked a good time to record the best performance of his career, matching a personal best with 17 faceoff wins and setting a career high with 12 ground balls in top-ranked Loyola Maryland's 13-10 victory over No. 6 Johns Hopkins on Saturday. Charley Toomey couldn't say he saw that effort coming from Savio as the Greyhounds (15-1), the third seed in the NCAA tournament, prepare for a first-round meeting with Albany (11-5) on Saturday at 12 p.m. at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore.

Unlike a year ago, when the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team was left out of the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1971, nerves were not an issue when this year's 18-team field was unveiled Sunday night. “We had one year away from it, and obviously, it was a long year and a disappointing situation that we didn't get there last year,” Blue Jays coach Dave Pietramala said. “But as I said last year, there was a criteria put together, and we didn't meet that criteria, and we had every opportunity to do our job and earn our way into the tournament, and we didn't.

As Loyola prepares to move from the Eastern College Athletic Conference to the Patriot League for the 2014 season, the school is working behind the scenes to retain one rivalry from the ECAC. The Greyhounds are eager to keep Denver on their schedule, according to Loyola coach Charley Toomey. The school won't get a framework for its 2014 schedule for a few more weeks, but Toomey said he will do what he can to preserve a series with the Pioneers that saw the Greyhounds end Denver's two-year reign in the league last season en route to the university's first Division I national championship of any kind.

If this was a statement game, then No. 1 Loyola Maryland left a great impression on No. 6 Johns Hopkins and the rest of the college lacrosse world. The Greyhounds trailed early, rallied in the middle and then put away the Blue Jays down the stretch in a 13-10 win before an announced sellout crowd of 6,000 at Ridley Athletic Complex. Although they had won 14 straight after a 14-13 season-opening overtime loss to Virginia, few knew whether the Greyhounds deserved their No. 1 ranking because they had not played a Top 10 team since beating then-No.
