The first team to represent the state of Maryland and the city of Baltimore in the 2012 NCAA Tournament is, you guessed it, the Loyola Greyhounds...what?
In the 2003-2004 season the Greyhounds were 1-27. Then Jimmy Patsos took over, and in the past eight seasons, has made Loyola a competitive team in the MAAC. The Greyhounds had a career best 24 wins this year on their way to their first MAAC championship in 18 years (or the lifespan of a current Loyola freshman). With the win over Fairfield, the Greyhounds advance to the NCAA Tournament...go Hounds.
