Loyola (8-11) at Fairfield (13-7)
Site: Alumni Hall, Fairfield, Conn.
Radio: WCAO (600 AM)
Outlook: The Greyhounds put forth a commendable effort Saturday night in a 72-67 loss to Canisius, which left Loyola at 5-3 and tied with Fairfield for third in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. Sophomore G Mike Powell (19.6 ppg), the MAAC's second-leading scorer, had a career-high 34 points, the most by a Greyhound in five years. Loyola needs freshmen Duane Johnson and Nsilo Abraham to stay out of foul trouble, something the two front-court players couldn't do against Canisius. The Stags, 6-2 at home, are coming off Saturday's 72-64 win over Niagara. Junior F Shannon Bowman is the 29th Fairfield player to score 1,000 career points.
