Once again the game came down to the final minutes, but this time the Saints were able to knock down critical shots with the aid of their [...]

The Saints managed to get back in the win column with a must win early conference game against Marist on Friday night. This definitely stopped the road trip woes.  It was a win off the court as well with Loyola topping Fairfield, allowing the Saints to gain a game in the loss column. The coaching [...]
