Trailing by 10 with 11:24 to play? Not a problem for UMass Lowell on Sunday.
The River Hawks held Loyola (MD) scoreless for a 9:08 span in the second half to storm back from a double-digit deficit en route to an 83-76 victory.
With 5:04 remaining in regulation, UML’s Matt Harris connected on a 3-pointer to push it out in front, 68-66, for its first lead since it was 5-4.
The Greyhounds finally put an end to what was a 20-0 UML run with 2:16 to go on a pair of Cam Gregory free throws, but it was too little, too late for Loyola.
UML trailed 45-40 at halftime and found itself down by as much as 13 on a pair of occasions in the final frame.
Harris led the River Hawks with 19 points, Jahad Thomas tossed in 17 points and 14 rebounds, and Ryan Jones added 13 points.
UML plays Sacred Heart (2-4) on Wednesday at 7 p.m.
