Loyola’s men’s basketball team swept past Rockhurst Friday, winning 71-58 at their season opener at Gentile Arena.
With 19 points and 8 rebounds, Montel James helped the Ramblers comeback from a half-time deficit, and soar past Rockhurst. The women’s team played with great effort, but Simone Law and Becca Smith’s double-figure scoring were not enough to bring Loyola back against Georgia Tech, losing 92-57.
After the games, Loyola Student Dispatch reporter Matt Markowski went to the Lake Shore Campus to ask fellow students their thoughts on the games and on the upcoming season for both the men’s and women’s teams.
