(New Orleans) The Dillard Lady Bleu Devils lost to the Loyola Lady Wolfpack on Monday night 73-50 on the Battlefield in Dent Hall.
The Lady Bleu Devils were unable to overcome a tough second half shooting slump, while the Lady Wolfpack's offense was clicking on all cylinders.

In the first half, the Bleu Devils (0-2) picked apart Loyola's defense, using a combination of a punishing inside scoring attack and a suffocating team defense to keep the score close. Lady Bleu Devils Jasmine Bradley made a strong impact in the first half, scoring 6 points, while grabbing one rebound and dishing out one assist. Jasmine Harbor also made her presence felt, scoring 5 points for the Lady Bleu Devils in the first half, including a three-pointer. The Lady Bleu Devils trailed 28-27 at intermission.

In the second half, Loyola began to score from the outside. A three-pointer by Loyola's Amy Moody gave the Lady Wolfpack their largest lead of the game at that point at 35-27. Following a timeout, the Lady Bleu Devils continued to struggle to score points while Loyola continued their torrid shooting from the outside. The Lady Wolfpack's 70% shooting in the second half was too much for the Lady Bleu Devils to overcome.

Ariel Mitchell led the Lady Bleu Devils with 11 points, while Jasmine Bradley finished with 8 points and 3 rebounds.

The Lady Bleu Devils will now prepare for the Xavier University Tournament at Xavier University in the Barn on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 24th and Friday, November 25th. The Lady Bleu Devils will play Rusk College on Thursday at 5:00p.m. and Langston University on Friday at 2:00p.m
