Loyola up 4 at half

Loyola’s size has been a factor, as 6-9 senior Carl Hoffman scored 10 points and pulled down 4 rebounds against the much-smaller Eagles to help stake Loyola to the 33-29 lead. Ike star point guard Andrew Bock has been very quiet, scoring two points and adding three assists, but the Eagles have gotten a shot in the arm from Bernard Ireland – who has eight points – and Kirby Gardner, who has six points off the bench.
