ALUMNI REPORT: Fives concludes Loyola career

James Fives was the most accurate 3-point shooter this season at Loyola of Maryland where the JB Hoops alum likely concluded his career earlier this month.

The 6-foot-6 senior shot 41.2 percent from long range, hitting 14 of 34 shots. That was the best percentage among the team’s nine players who attempted at least five 3-pointers.

Fives played in 20 games, including 9 starts. He averaged 3.1 points and 2.4 rebounds while shooting 31.9 percent from the floor and 81.0 percent from the line.

The former Scranton Prep and Hill School player was honored as part of the school’s Senior Day ceremonies at the final home game. He does have a year of college eligibility remaining, if he chooses to use it, after being granted a medical hardship waiver for his injury-interrupted junior season in 2017-18.

Fives appeared in 90 games at Loyola, starting exactly half of them.

Prior to running into injury problems, Fives played all 33 games and started 30 of them as a sophomore guard. He averaged 6.1 points and 2.6 rebounds in 23.1 minutes per game that season.

Fives had his career scoring high of 16 in a game against Patriot League power Bucknell in his sophomore season. His rebounding high of 11 came against Northwestern in the opener of his junior season.

Loyola finished 7-11 in the Patriot League and 11-21 overall this season.
