Loyola Chicago upsets Miami, advances to play Tennessee in second round

Was there any other way Loyola would continue its magical run?

Donte Ingram sank a long 3-pointer in the final second to lift No. 11 Loyola-Chicago over No. 6 Miami, 64-62.

"We'd been in that position many times where we've gotten down, and we don't quit", Loyola head coach Porter Moser said.

The Ramblers ended their 33-year NCAA Tournament drought by playing some of the most relentless defense in the nation - they allowed the fifth-fewest points in the country (62.2) while limiting opponents to fewer than 10 made free throws per game.

They'll face the Tennessee Volunteers, who easily dispatched Wright State, in the second round on Saturday.

After a missed free throw by Miami's Lonnie Walker IV, Ben Richardson pulled down a rebound, and the Ramblers confidently pushed the ball down the court.

Sister Jean is known to lead the Ramblers in a prayer and give the team a scouting report on the opposing team before tip-off.

Ingram gently hugged her. "We said we would be careful of our shots, careful not to foul".

Russian runway paved with gold, silver
Over 170 gold bars have fallen out the back of a Russian cargo plane after the hatch flew open as the plane was taking off . A police spokesperson said that there were five crewmembers on board the plane and none of them were hurt in the incident.


"We asked God to help us", Schmidt said of her words before Thursday's win.

The final score was the only time the Ramblers led in the second half, but they were never down more than five points over the final 10 minutes after trailing by seven early.

On the ensuing possession, Townes and Cameron Krutwig missed two layups around the rim before fouling Walker.

Walker scored 12 points for the Hurricanes. "I had a complete out-of-body experience on the court", said guard Lucas Williamson, who also admitted that he felt like he "blacked out" after the shot went in.

Keeping with what he did throughout his eight years in office, President Barack Obama filled out a bracket for this year's tournament. Former Ramblers guard Alfredrick Hughes, the star of the 1985 Sweet 16 squad, sat behind the bench in a bright yellow shirt and giant cowboy hat.

Guard Clayton Custer found himself wide open in the corner for a tying three-pointer thanks to misdirection and an off-ball screen that caught the Hurricane players sleeping.
