Loyola 79, Binghamton 74: Dylon Cormier (Cardinal Gibbons) and Jarred Jones (John Carroll) scored 31 and 22 points, respectively, and the visiting Greyhounds (1-0) held off the Bearcats (0-1) for the first head coaching win of G.G. Smith's career.

A free throw by Cormier with under two minutes to play gave Loyola (1-0 overall) the lead for good, and two late blocks by Jones on Bearcats layups helped seal the win.

Cormier scored 21 of his points in the second half, while Jones distributed his 22 evenly between the halves.

Arizona State 96, UMBC 61: The Retrievers (0-1) hung with the Sun Devils (1-0) for 30 minutes but could not overcome late-game shooting woes.

UMBC freshman guard Rodney Elliott (John Carroll) got the start for an injured Quentin Jones (Mount St. Joseph) at point guard and co-led a balanced UMBC offense with 12 points. Sophomore Malik Garner also scored a career-high 12.

West Virginia 77, Mount St. Mary's 62: Julian Norfleet scored a team-high 19 points, but the visiting Mount (0-1) fell to the Mountaineers (1-0).

Kristijan Krajina and Will Miller added nine points each for the Mount. Gregory Graves had nine rebounds in the loss.
