Shoe on Other Foot for Loyola, 152-123

From Associated Press

Maurice Brighthaupt led eight Northeastern players in double figures with 29 points in the Huskies' record-setting 152-123 victory over Loyola Marymount in Saturday's consolation round of the Maui Invitational.

The points were the most scored and allowed by Northeastern (1-1), and the 152 points were the most ever allowed by Loyola (0-2), playing its second game under Coach Jay Hillock.

Northwestern looked as if it and not Loyola was the team known for scoring at a breakneck pace. The Huskies had 76 points at halftime, matching last season's average for an entire game.

They broke the school record for points with 6:47 to play, eclipsing the mark of 128 against Suffolk University on Dec. 3, 1984. The most points Northeastern had previously allowed in a game was 110 on two occasions.

The most points ever allowed by Loyola was in a 181-150 victory over U.S. International on Jan. 31, 1989, the highest-scoring college game ever played.

Northeastern shot 59% in the first half, converting layup after layup as it rebounded and ran and Loyola struggled from the outside, shooting only 40% in the first half.

The Huskies led, 76-63, at halftime and increased it to 133-98 with 6:35 to play.

Chris Knight, Craig Holt and Kareem Washington each had 18 points for the Lions. Marcellus Anderson added 26 points for Northeastern.
