Manhattan 96, Loyola, Md. 63
NEW YORK (AP)—Peter Mulligan scored 28 points on 11-of-16 shooting to help Manhattan rout Loyola of Maryland 96-63 on Friday night, the Greyhounds’ 30th straight loss.
Loyola (0-17, 0-8 Metro Atlantic) is three short of the NCAA Division I record of 33 consecutive losses set by Grambling from Dec. 6, 1999, to Dec. 16, 2000.
It’s been more than a year since Loyola’s last victory, 74-69 over Rider on Jan. 19, 2003—and that took overtime.
Luis Flores added 15 points, and Guy Ngarndi had 12 for the Jaspers (13-3, 8-0), who won their eighth straight. Charlie Bell had 17 points, and Jamaal Dixon 14 for the Greyhounds.
Bell scored the first basket of the game, but Manhattan responded with a 19-0 run. Mulligan had 17 points and Flores 11 to help the Jaspers take a 60-23 halftime lead.
Manhattan led by as much as 82-41 after Mulligan scored with 10:41 left in the game.
