11-seed Loyola Chicago upsets Miami with 28-foot shot at buzzer

17 March 2018

Loyola-Chicago will take on the Tennessee Volunteers in the second round on Saturday. She believes her Ramblers aren't finished dancing.

Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, 98, longtime chaplain of the Loyola University Chicago men's basketball team and campus icon, smiles during an appearance on "Windy City Live" March 12 to discuss her bracket and the team's NCCA tournament run. When asked what made the 1963 Loyola team special and what this team has in common with them, Sister Jean said: "They share the ball, they don't care". The Spartans had won six in a row and 11 of 12.

"I knew he was going to swipe through [because] as an offensive player, you're supposed to swipe through and dribble up the court so you don't get fouled", Williamson said.

Loyola-Chicago is fifth in the nation in points allowed, surrendering just 62.2 points per game. The Ramblers' lead passes created easy shots under the basket as they scored 22 of their 28 first-half points in the paint.

The Rambler defense forced Miami into sixteen turnovers in their 1st round matchup, five more than the Hurricanes committed on average this year.

"It is to me", Larranaga said. The New York Times profiled her earlier this week.

Said Schofield:"Well for us that's hard to compete with". "I have to do my thing, and he has to do his thing".

Loyola-Chicago is risky. And the Vols can't rest on their laurels after handling Wright State so easily if they want to advance to the Sweet Sixteen. So our fellas have to realize that everybody on their team is very good and does their very best.

This year's iteration of the Hurricanes never exactly jelled, which is understandable for such a young team. The Ramblers say it makes their day, especially the encouragement after tough games.

Loyola took care of business in the first half, only trailing for 1:05 of game time. Sometimes she'll pray for the referee to make the right calls. Big South Conference Player of the Year Keyen Green scored 10 points, all in the second half. But the Hurricanes committed 16 turnovers and eight of the Ramblers' 26 field goals were treys, the last Ingram's game victor.

"She's the biggest Loyola basketball fan I've ever met in my life", junior guard Marques Townes said. Miami and Loyola entered the tournament ranked 37th and 40th in the country, respectively, according to KenPom.com. "But I'm actually anxious about losing our team chaplain". In January 2017, she was inducted into Loyola's sports hall of fame.

Sometimes, however, the shoe fits. He also made expressed his confidence in the team's ability to advance with strength throughout the tournament.

Simply put, the world is about to root against Tennessee basketball on Saturday.

Was it due to luck, coaching of Porter Moser, skill, hustle, or even divine intervention - who knows, maybe a mix of all of the above?

"It went through the net and then I just..." "This will probably be my last experience".

After the game, Ingram and Sister Jean shared a celebratory hug 25 years in the making.

He said he became a fan after seeing her on TV. "I love that about them".
