Given that the pair suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this match.

Last Saturday, the Greyhounds came up short against the Raiders and fell 76-62. Loyola Maryland has struggled against the Raiders recently, as their matchup on Saturday was their eighth consecutive lost matchup.
