No. 11 Loyola-Chicago upsets No. 6 Miami

No. 11 Loyola-Chicago upsets No. 6 Miami

While the nature of Loyola's win was shocking, the upset itself has become common in March Madness.

But the Ramblers missed back-to-back shots under the bucket. Both teams had their runs to the lead, but in the end it was neck-and-neck for the right to advance to the next round.

Donte Ingram hit a long 3-pointer just before the buzzer, lifting Loyola-Chicago to a thrilling 64-62 win over Miami on Thursday in its first NCAA Tournament appearance in 33 years.

Loyola look like a confident, experienced group in the first half when they raced out to an early lead.

With 26 seconds to go, Marques Townes made one out of two free throws to trim the deficit to one point.




At halftime the game was tied at 28 after a jumper by Miami's Dejan Vasiljevic. He knew it the moment the ball left his hands.

The Ramblers had four players score in double digits in the South Region victory, led by Clayton Custer's 14 points, followed by Ingram with 13 points.

As time ticked down, Ingram got open at the top of the key and got the pass, knocking down one of the most memorable shots in Loyola basketball history.

The Ramblers will face No. 3 Tennessee in the second round on Saturday, with a spot in the Sweet 16 on the line.
