BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Shane Walker notched a double-double, scoring 17 points and grabbing 11 boards, to lead Loyola (Md.) over Canisius 70-52 on Sunday for the regular-season sweep against the Golden Griffins.
Erik Etherly added 15 points, Justin Drummond 14 and Robert Olson 13 for the Greyhounds (16-5, 9-2 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference). Loyola has now put together four straight wins, its second-longest streak of the season.
The Greyhounds won at home against the Golden Griffins on Jan. 7.
Canisius led early and 22-16 midway through the first half, but a Drummond three-point play and three Walker free throws sparked a 12-0 run the rest of the half. Loyola’s six-point halftime lead grew insurmountable, as the Greyhounds outscored the Golden Griffins 42-30 in the second half to seal it.
Loyola outrebounded Canisius 43-27.
Alshwan Hymes scored 12 points to lead Canisius (4-17, 1-10).
