Loyola held Canisius scoreless for the final 8:02 of the game and pulled away for a 70-52 victory Sunday afternoon in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference men's basketball.
The victory, coupled with a win Friday night at Niagara, gave the Greyhounds (16-5, 9-2 MAAC) their first-ever road sweep of the Buffalo-area schools since joining the league in 1989-90.
"Last night, I went to the Buffalo symphony, where they have a great conductor, Joann Falletta, and that is what we talked about before the game," coach Jimmy Patsos said after the win. "I told them that it is the whole orchestra that matters, not just one instrument. Our depth is why we won both games up here.
"Justin Drummond and Anthony Winbush both stepped up, and Jordan Latham played great defense that doesn't necessarily show up in stats. It was a total team effort without us having Dylon Cormier. Dylon was tremendous in the huddle in both games, even though he was only able to play a little bit [because of an injury] against Niagara. He has a future in coaching when he's done playing."
Loyola went on a 12-0 run to close the first half and then added another 12-0 run early in the second half to take control against the Golden Griffins (4-17, 1-10).
Shane Walker led all players with his first double double of the season, scoring 17 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. He also had a season-high five blocked shots, one shy of his career best.
Justin Drummond added 14 points off the bench after his 21-point performance Friday night against Niagara. Erik Etherly scored 15 points and had a game-high five assists after an 18-point game Friday.
Loyola had a 14-rebound advantage in the game, grabbing 43 to Canisius' 27. The Greyhounds had 22 offensive boards.
