BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) Dylon Cormier scored 21 points and Erik Etherly added 16 as both players crossed the 1,000-point threshold at Loyola (MD) in the Greyhounds' 65-60 win over Fairfield on Monday night in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference play.
Cormier and Etherly combined to make 17 of Loyola's 24 free throws. Loyola (14-6, 6-2) fell one free throw short of its season-high 25, which was set in the Greyhounds' Jan 11. win against Fairfield.
Derek Needham had 23 points and Amadou Sidibe posted 12 points and 11 rebounds for Fairfield (10-10, 2-6), which has lost five straight after winning its previous six games.
Fairfield trailed 33-32 at intermission but missed nine of their first 11 shots and committed five turnovers over the first 10 minutes of the second half as Loyola built a 50-40 advantage.
The Stags cut the deficit to 61-58 with 1:14 left but didn't score again until the 3-second mark.
Lamar Jackson is incredible, and he finds new ways to add to his MVP resume each week.
That continued against the Bills, one of the stingiest defenses in the NFL. It didn't matter for Jackson, who showed off his elusiveness on the ground early and often.
Let's track all the ways Jackson made our jaws drop this week.
- Jackson breaks all of the ankles on one run
- He passes 1,000 yards on the ground on the same move, which will show again because it's unbelievable
- Even when he gets tackled for a loss, he can wow with a stiff arm
- It doesn't always look pretty, but nobody's better when a play breaks down
Lamar Jackson is better at football than most people are at anything.
He proved it once more early in the first quarter against the Bills, breaking two more ankles en route to gaining a first down on the ground.
Bills linebacker Matt Milano, who, it needs to be mentioned, is paid a lot of money to tackle people, completely whiffs on Jackson here. He tackles the air while falling to the ground, and will forever have to watch his attempted tackle on highlight reels.
Lamar Jackson can't stop putting NFL defenders to shame, and we can't stop laughing watching them.
