UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) - Dylon Cormier scored 19 points and Tyler Hubbard hit a pair of key 3-pointers to lead Loyola (Md.) to a 65-49 victory over Norfolk State on Saturday at the Hall of Fame Tip Off.
Hubbard's basket from behind the arc gave the Greyhounds (3-1) a 33-24 lead during an 8-0 run in the final 3:11 of the first half.
After the Spartans (2-2) whittled a 37-24 halftime deficit to seven points, 44-37, with 13:16 remaining, another 3 by Hubbard gave Loyola a 10-point lead, and the Greyhounds remained ahead by double digits the rest of the way.
