Loyola Fans Still Buzzing After Dramatic Win

Loyola-Chicago is one of the largest Catholic universities in the nation and is perhaps best known for their superfan Sister Jean, a 98-year-old nun who has served as the basketball team chaplain for almost thirty years.

Donte Ingram hit a long 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds left Thursday, and Miami's last heave harmlessly bounced away as Loyola upset Miami, 64-62, to book a meeting with Tennessee in the second round of the NCAA Tournament at 5:10 p.m. Saturday.

"After the game, she sends a general email to the team", Ingram said after the 64-62 first-round win Thursday.

The long shot from well beyond the key came with just a split-second left, and was set up by a pass from Marques Townes.

Khadeen Carrington scored 26 points and Desi Rodriguez added 20 in guiding the No. 8 Pirates to a 94-83 win against North Carolina State. Loyola erased an early 6-4 Miami lead with a 10-1 run, jumpstarted by back-to-back treys from Custer and Ingram.

Several of Tennessee's players stayed after their 73-47 win over Wright State to watch at least part of the Loyola Chicago-Miami game. Then it took Ingram's shot to give the Ramblers their first second-half lead, leading to an on-court celebration in front of the large throng of Loyola fans who made the trip to Dallas.

Miami shot 51 percent, outrebounded Loyola 33-27 and led for most of the second half. We did some very good things and shot the ball over 50 percent, 44 percent from three, outrebounded them.

The Hurricanes came out with an 11-4 run to start the second half and kept the Ramblers at bay for the first 19 minutes of the period.

Roland Griffin had 21 points on 9-for-12 shooting off the bench, TK Edogi posted 11 points and Zach Lewis and Rickey McGill both had 10 points for Iona (20-14).

Graham also had six rebounds and six assists. Third-seeded MI, which won the Big Ten Tournament title on March 4, trailed 10-0 in the opening minutes against 14th-seeded Montana before pulling away for a 61-47 victory Thursday night.

Keita Bates-Diop had 24 points and 12 rebounds for the Buckeyes, who will face Gonzaga in the round of 32 on Saturday.

Williams answered - by being fouled on a pair of 3-pointers.

Fifth-seeded Ohio State seemed to be ready, beating 12th-seeded South Dakota State 81-73 Thursday afternoon after a 12-day layoff.

Loyola didn't draw even with the Hurricanes until there were just 76 seconds left to play on a 3-pointer from Clayton Custer, who finished with a game-high 14 points.

The last time Kentucky didn't make a 3-pointer was at the Great Alaska Shootout against Seton Hall on November 26, 1988 - when Eddie Sutton was coaching, LeRon Ellis was the team's leading scorer and the 3-point arc was only in its third year in the college game. The Ramblers only trailed 65 seconds in the first half, scoring 22 of their 28 points in the paint and limiting Miami's standout guard Lonnie Walker IV to five points on 2 for 6 shooting. Marvin Smith had a chance to tie it for UNC Greensboro (27-8), and his 3-point attempt looked spot on, but it bounded in and out. The phenomenal freshman led the nation with averages of 27.4 points and 8.8 assists.
