BALTIMORE -- Rachele Fitz scored 27 points and Julianne Viani added 15 to help Marist beat Loyola of Maryland 86-44 on Sunday for its 12th consecutive victory.

Meredith Tolley and Alex Berlin led the Greyhounds (8-7, 3-2) with nine points each. Loyola has dropped three of four.

Loyola never recovered from a 2-for-12 start from the field that included a stretch of 8:16 without a field goal and coincided with a 19-1 Marist run.
